It's not every day that Star Wars fans can experience a galaxy far, far away right here in Cleveland.

But on Dec. 3, they can do just that as Star Wars In Concert rocks Quicken Loans Arena as part of its worldwide tour.

The event will feature the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and a choir performing major themes from John Williams’ masterpiece scores.

Behind the orchestra, blasters and light sabers will flash on a larger-than-life high-definition screen, showing clips from the movies synchronized with the music.

And perhaps best of all, Anthony Daniels — the guy who spent all six films inside the C-3PO costume — will narrate the saga from Queen Amidala to Admiral Ackbar.

If you’re wondering if it’s really possible to condense the best music and scenes from the six epic Star Wars films into a two-hour concert, take a cue from Darth Vader: “Don’t underestimate the Force.”
