Plot summary[]

Surrounded by a crowd of cheering fans, the first to arrive to an anniversary screening of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope is Luke Skywalker himself in his X-34 landspeeder, which is quickly crashed by a Jawa. Under guard of two clone troopers from the 187th Legion, Mace Windu and Ahsoka Tano arrive next in a TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank. A B1-series battle droid hiding in the crowd jumps out in an attempt to fire upon his foes, only to be quickly taken out by the Force-sensitives and clones. The next to arrive are Clone Force 99 in the Marauder; while Omega, Echo, Hunter, Tech and Wrecker are met by cheers, the crowd boos CT-9904 "Crosshair" and throws popcorn at him.

The crowd is very excited upon the arrival of Grogu, who arrived with his guardian Din Djarin in the Razor Crest. However, the Razor Crest is quickly destroyed by Gideon's light cruiser, with Gideon and a trio of third-generation design Dark Trooper greeting the Mandalorian and his foundling. As Djarin and Gideon duel, Grogu uses the Force to push back the Dark Troopers before claiming a bucket of popcorn. Meanwhile, the light cruiser escapes as Jawas steal parts from it, only for one of the scavengers to be freighted by the former Sith Lord Maul, who forces one of a trio of onlookers to give his flips a high score.

Eating a snow cone, General Maximilian Veers arrives to the scene with several cold weather assault stormtrooper in an All Terrain Armored Transport, which the Jawas try to scale up before the arrival of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand in the Slave I. As Shand signs an autograph, Skywalker and Darth Vader have begun a lightsaber duel but cease briefly to make sure a man in the crowd gets a good picture of them. The Millennium Falcon then arrives and Skywalker reunites with his friends, who all make their marks on the walk of fame—with Han Solo running into a slab instead to recreate the appearance of his carbonite block—before quickly entering the theater.

Although Vader is upset at being unable to drink a soda inside, the crowd begins to watch A New Hope as Yoda looks on.
