BT Tower becomes giant lightsabre tonight
Star Wars hype in full force
Fox Home Entertainment has celebrated the release of Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray disc set, by holding events all week, climaxing with a party tonight in London that'll see the BT Tower become a giant lightsabre.
The UK was the first to release the box set on Monday, and events this week saw cast sign autographs and an army of Stormtroopers march through the capital – a sight sure to keep hoodies at bay whether they are wandering Jedi or London's looting louts.
The celebrations culminate in a star-studded bash set to kick off at 8pm when Anthony Daniels – aka C3PO – switches powers on this blue ray and transforms the BT Tower into a lightsabre fit for a giant. It'll stay on for one night only, while the party is on in full force at the top of the building.
So if you live in the capital, keep your eyes on the skies around central London from 8pm tonight and remind anyone who points out a UFO, that it's just a bunch of Star Wars fans. They'll understand.

The Reg Comments. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.
I find your lack of heading disturbing
I don't need to enter a headline
This isn't the comment you're looking for
They need to re edit star wars
so that jar jar binks gets the good news from a light sabre within 5 seconds of his first appearance or has his head bitten off by a wookie.
That's not a lightsabre
it's an enormous willy!
