Storm Troopers call in for some grub in the Food Court.

Two stormtroopers called into the Millennium Forum to meet fans ahead of the Emerald Garrison invasion which will take place in the city on September 17 and 18.

The stormtroopers proceeded to walk through Foyleside Shopping Centre and took time out of the Empire’s schedule to sample some grub in the Food Court.

Next month’s showpiece is called ‘Invasion Derry’ and the award winning fan event will include more than 40 costumed characters. Fans will be given the opportunity to meet actors from the original movies.

This hugely popular event gives visitors of all ages the chance to meet with dozens of costumed characters including legions of Stormtroopers, Jedi Knights, Bounty Hunters, Clone Troopers, Darth Vader, Wookies and many more!

It will also feature special guest, Alan Harris otherwise known as Bossk the Bounty Hunter. Other guests are still to be announced.

Young visitors will once again have the opportunity to experience Force Training with the Emerald Garrison’s Jedi instructors.

‘Invasion Derry’ will be held at the Millennium Forum from Saturday September 17 to Sunday 18.
