'Star Wars' lights up traditional Japanese festival

After commandeering a centuries-old rice paddy in Japan, Star Wars went on to infiltrate the Aomori Nebuta Matsuri, a traditional summer festival famed for its elaborate, illuminated papier-mache floats.

Held in Aomori, the parade typically features images of samurai warriors, birds and animals, but this year, with Japan in the grip of Star Wars fever, droids, Jedi and Sith Lords were added to the mix. Darth Vader, Stormtroopers and R2-D2 even marched (and rolled) in the procession, officially sanctioned by Disney and Lucsfilm.
