The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Star Wars!

So last night I went to see Star Wars A New Hope with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra playing all of John Williams’ compositions and honestly, the experience has ruined Star Wars A New Hope for me forever because it was SO amazing. It was the Special Edition version but that’s OK, I am not too fussed about the extra footage (as some fans are I think) and the NZSO made up for it anyway.

Here is a pic I took from the stadium:

I’m going to see The Empire Strikes Back tonight for more of the same awesomeness. If you ever get a chance to experience this, PLEASE do because you will never see Star Wars like this – it really is something special with the music being played right in front of you.

It’s probably the best Star Wars Day May the 4th experience I’ve ever had. Are you doing or did you do anything special for Star Wars day? Let me know in the comments if you’re keen 🙂
