Echo Base Celebrates 40 year Star Wars: Benefiting Unicef
June 21, 2017 Echo Base is proud to announce that on December 16th, the Star Wars event Echo Base Charity Con will take place in Kinepolis Jaarbeurs Utrecht, Holland. Fans’ Star Wars heart will beat a tad faster at this 100% Star Wars event, bringing the proceeds to Force for Change, a charitable initiative of Lucasfilm and Disney for Unicef. Ticket sales will start soon.
On December 16, Kinepolis Jaarbeurs Utrecht is transformed into a Valhalla for Star Wars enthusiasts. For example, there is a lot of different merchandise on sale, a special auction takes place for Force for Change, there is cosplay and fans can meet various Star Wars actors during organized signing sessions and Q & A’s.
The first names of actors present at Echo Base Charity Con have already been announced: Jeremy Bulloch, who played the cult hero Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Return of the Jedi (1983) and Tim Rose, who played -among others- Admiral Ackbar in Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens (2015) and The Last Jedi (2017).
The date of December 16 was not chosen by coincidence. Not only is Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiering in cinema’s that week but it was also 40 years ago, Star Wars premiered in Dutch cinemas (December 15, 1977).
