The pants worn by Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker in “Star Wars” are up for auction May 21st in Los Angeles. They are expected to fetch $70,000-$100,000.
“‘Star Wars’ is one of those rare cinematic experiences that most people remember their whole lives,” said Nate D. Sanders, whose company is auctioning the pants. “It’s hard to believe now, but ‘Star Wars’ in 1977 was not a ‘go’ from the start. Several studios passed on making it. But now, we look back on it, over 35 years later, and it’s the 3rd highest grossing movie of all time.”
