Everything’s coming up Star Wars!

So, a very happy Star Wars: The Force Awakens weekend to everyone!


We actually want to take a moment to remember the original Star Wars movie trilogy – because on December 7, 2015, members of the Fast Forward team were able to attend the Star Wars Readers’ Theater event at the Library of Congress. The event was put together by the Young Readers’ Center (part of the Center for the Book at the Library of Congress) and Disney-Lucasfilm Press. Four best-selling authors read from their young reader adaptations of the original Star Wars movies. An appreciative audience of schoolchildren also got to see a short video about Lucasfilm, and participate in a Q&A session with the authors. We have a posted a few short videos that we recorded while we were there.
