Gilbert Stuart And the Jedi In Brooklyn
On any other Saturday afternoon, surely it would have been bad form to twirl a double-sided Lightsaber, the signature weapon of the Jedi, anywhere in the vicinity of Gilbert Stuarts 1796 portrait of George Washington. And, doubtlessly, it would have been unusual to ponder the elegance of early American furniture or 19th-century glazed earthenware to the relentless looping of the theme song from Star Wars..

The Real Star Wars
At a packed movie theater the other day, a parental ritual was under way next to a big poster in the lobby. Pointing with enthusiasm to scenes from the picture, a dad said to his son: Here are the Imperial walkers. and over here is the Millennium Falcon. The boy nodded, finding a common bond with his father in the way kids have done for years when they went with parents to their first ball game or maybe first Nutcracker ballet. Star Wars has been endlessly described as a triumphal marriage of movie-making and merchandising, but this particular re-issue is most of all a tour de force of cross-generational sharing. The Walt Disney Company long ago discovered the rewards of re-issuing classic features to successive generations of kids. But most parents bring little excitement to sitting through Peter Pan or Cinderella, even though they know the young ones may be charmed as they once were. Still less appetizing for adults are the clunky remakes of childhood favorites like 101 Dalmatians and, soon, That Darn Cat.. Editorial lauds recent re-release of movie Star Wars as a tour de force of cross-generational sharing (S)

With the Force but No Guns; Issue Haunts Star Wars Gala in Denver
There were a lot of storm troopers wandering around without their blaster guns at the Star Wars Celebration here, the first convention and exposition dedicated to the 22-year-old movie series to win the approval and support of the films creator, George Lucas. Through a strange twist of fate, the Star Wars Celebration landed in Denver on the same weekend as the National Rifle Association convention, which drew 7,000 protesters, and just 10 days after the Columbine High School shootings in Littleton, a suburb 20 minutes away. It was food for thought, not least because the Star Wars movies -- whose dark side leans heavily on the iconography of the Third Reich, an obsession of the Columbine killers -- are filled with the kind of shoot-em-up entertainment fantasy that many citizens are again blaming for societys ills.. Star Wars Celebration in Denver, the first such gathering to have approval and support of films creator, George Lucas, draws about 40,000 fans to Wings Over Rockies Air and Space Museum; spectre of massacre at Columbine High School in suburban Littleton hangs over celebration like Death Star; photos (M)

Kicking Up Cosmic Dust
AFTER sitting through Star Wars: Episode II -- Attack of the Clones, Im tempted to quote an evergreen Public Enemy song: dont believe the hype. But really, belief is beside the point. The promotional machinery around the Star Wars franchise exists beyond fervor or skepticism; it is a fact of life. When the fifth installment in George Lucass pop-Wagnerian cycle opens nationally on Thursday (after being shown at the first TriBeCa Film Festival on Sunday afternoon), the event will have all the spontaneity and surprise of an election day in the old Soviet Union. Like weary Brezhnev-era Muscovites, the American moviegoing public will line up out of habit and compulsion, ruefully hoping that this episode will at least be a little better than the last one, and perhaps inwardly suspecting that the whole elephantine system is rotten. Even the true believers camped out on the sidewalks with their toy light sabers (or the ones at the screening I attended who burst into applause at the appearance of the 20th Century Fox and Lucasfilm company logos) seem more dutiful than enthusiastic..

And that barely scratched the surface. Hardly a shred of information or rumor about the $115 million Star Wars film has escaped legions of wired Star Wars enthusiasts.. Large number of Star Wars Web sites cater to fans awaiting release of film Star Wars: Episode 1--The Phantom Menace; many fans promptly package any news about film on sites that include clever design, often using stunning homemade artwork and computer graphics; Internet and PC-inspired technology seem to be having some effect on look of film; photos (M)
