The Los Angeles Dodgers will conduct their ninth annual "Star Wars" Night at Friday's interleague game against the Kansas City Royals with both special pregame and postgame activities.
"Star Wars" characters will be available throughout Dodger Stadium before the game to pose for pictures with fans. Rian Johnson, who directed "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," set for release Dec. 15, will throw the ceremonial first pitch.
The customary Friday night postgame fireworks show will be "Star Wars" themed. Fans will be invited onto the field to watch the show, which will take place before 11 p.m. and is subject to cancellation if the game lasts too long.
A "Star Wars" ticket package, including a T-shirt with the droid character BB-8, who was introduced in the 2015 film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," is available at here.
Last week, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved plans for the George Lucas Museum in Los Angeles. The museum will be located in Exposition Park, near the University of Southern California, where Lucas earned a degree in film in the 1960s.
It will include "Star Wars" items, but also items that focus on the art of storytelling from the time of cave paintings to today's digital technology.
