Misplaced steps reveal doorway to Star Wars live action series

That distant glass door leads to LucasFilm television and its new live action Star Wars show.While I'll admit that the photo at right is not the most detailed, and Ansel Adams is unlikely to claim it as one of his own due to its lighting and composition, it should prove an important image for Star Wars fans.

They're currently working in product and character development for Chuck E. Cheese."
