Gary Kurtz to Appear at Celebration!

Producer Gary Kurtz will make a first-time appearance in the Celebration Autograph Hall at Star Wars Celebration V! Kurtz, who began his career with writer/director George Lucas as a co-producer on American Graffiti, produced A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back.

In addition to his production duties on Empire, Kurtz shouldered some of the second-unit directing duties of the film. He produced and directed the animated fantasy movie The Dark Crystal, working with Muppet creator Jim Henson and with the creator and voice of Yoda, Frank Oz. Recently Kurtz produced the British television series Friends and Heroes.

Fans at Star Wars Celebration IV in Los Angeles were treated to a first look at the Kurtz-produced ’77, a movie about a young, aspiring moviemaker who gets to go behind the scenes and see some of the making of the magic of the first Star Wars movie.
