I've had one audition so far for the Jedi role, and I'm considering getting someone from the local 501st Legion for the Sith role. I also have the perfect person to perform the announcer if he so chooses to accept my forthcoming invitation. This is looking to be quite the project!
So far it's looking like we'll be shooting sometime early next year, perhaps January or February depending on when everyone can get together. I also have a couple of locations in mind, but I need to do a little more investigating before making the final choice.
