To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Lucasfilm is planning a yearlong charity campaign that kicks off on May 19th 2010 with a one-night-only digital screening of Empire at the ArcLight Hollywood. And better yet, there will be an on-stage Q&A with Harrison Ford, an actor who notoriously doesn’t usually do Star Wars events and conventions. The information comes from the Hero Complex Blog.

The Good News: The ArcLight screening will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The Bad News: Tickets don’t come cheap: $100 or $175 for “premiere seating”, both of which are on sale now at the St. Jude’s website.

If I wasn’t going to be in France at the Cannes Film Festival, I’d love to attend this. I’m sure some of you Los Angeles-based /Film readers have $100 bucks saved up to watch Han Solo with Han Solo, right?

Someone at LucasFilm had the great idea to turn Yoda’s planet of exile Dagobah into a frog habitat toy for kids. Now, I would have loved this when I was younger. Basically it’s a small tank that is set up to look like the Sluis sector, a world shown in Empire Strikes Back, featuring murky swamps, steaming bayous, and petrified gnarltree forests. ThinkGeek sells the package for $39.99, which gets you the aquarium, hideaway hut, yoda figure, an a mail-in order form for tadpoles/tadpole food, and an instruction/information manual.
