Imagine, you’ve just walked onto a film set and you’re surrounded by Y-Wings, AT-ST Scoutwalkers, R2D2, Actors, Stormtroopers, and even the dark lord Darth Vader himself.
At Invasion Dublin, you don’t need to imagine, you’re already there.
Featuring life sized replica props and sets from the original and new Star Wars trilogies, and costumed characters so lifelike that David Prowse (Darth Vader) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) commented were even better than the original. The Emerald Garrison brings Star Wars to life in a way which amuses, informs, entertains and educates.
With guests including the iconic Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett) Mike Edmonds (Logray) Invasion Dublin will host the European premiere of James Arnold Taylors, (the voice of Obi Wan Kenobi in The Clone Wars and literally hundreds of other voices throughout the film, cartoon and gaming world) one-man show ‘Talking to Myself’.
Keeping things local, Cork Native Will Sliney completes the line-up. Sliney was one of the animation team on the 3D release of The Phantom Menace as well as drawing some of the Star Wars comics. He’ll be doing daily workshops entitled ‘How to draw Star Wars’.
Featuring a full educational programme on the Friday, which will include talks from Astronomy Ireland, Mechatrons, How to draw Star Wars, Q+A sessions from the actors, The Emerald Garrison will ‘recreate the magic’, an interactive session where artisans and sculptors will re-create creatures from the Star Wars series.
Other new features throughout the weekend include Star Wars Weddings, A cosplay competition, Star Wars Quiz and the amazing ‘Galactic Attack’ will join old favorites line Force Training, The Death Star Throne and everything else that has made the Invasion brand so strong.
Tickets, a snip at just €12.50, are available now from Invasion.ie along with a full schedule and list of features.
