The 2007 Tournament of Roses Parade, which kicks off New Year’s Day, will have a tribute to Star Wars, including George Lucas as the Grand Marshall, and members of the “501st Legion”, an unofficial group of hardcore fans that appear in authentic replica costumes. Lucasfilm is flying in 200 of them from around the world to participate. Also, the Grambling State University Marching Band will appear in Imperial officer uniforms. At each end of the tribute section of the parade will be floats – one scene from Endor, the other of Naboo.
