This would be a FOX/LUCASFILM/STAR WARS CORPORATION sponsored venture with Imperial Stormtroopers in attendance, as well as other props from STAR WARS and the upcoming THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK to be seen in an outdoor display (including what looks like an early version of Darth Vader's Meditation Chamber). Also present for what looks like a very enjoyable day were Dave Prowse and Peter Mayhew.
Fisher was most likely the key invite, though-not only linked to STAR WARS but due to the fact that, earlier in the year (May 14th), she had played a Horse Trainer in a US ABC TV MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Leave Yesterday Behind, alongside the late John Ritter.
