8-YEAR-OLD `DARTH FIDDLER' HOPES TO APPEAR IN NEXT `STAR WARS'
8-YEAR-OLD `DARTH FIDDLER' HOPES TO APPEAR IN NEXT `STAR WARS' FLICK
BRANSON, Mo. (Wireless Flash) -- A pre-pubescent fiddle player in Branson, Missouri, hopes to catch the ear of "Star Wars" creator George Lucas. Little 8-year-old fiddling whiz Austin Sanders performs every Sunday morning at Branson's Braschler Theater where he's known as "Darth Fiddler" -- partly because his signature tune is the theme music to "Star Wars." His family is mounting a campaign they hope will convince Lucas to cast Austin as a Cantina Band fiddler in the next film. If Lucas does give Austin the chance to fiddle on film, the pint-sized musician says he hopes to appear in a scene with his favorite character, Obi Wan Kenobi.
