If you’re a big “Star Wars” fan, chances are you’ve already got your plan in place for opening night and/or day of “Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” when it hits theaters just a couple weeks from now. But if you live in Southern California and happen to have the evening of December 15th free, you may want to keep that schedule clear for a unique event just announced by the official Disney fan club D23.
Starting at 5:30 PM and running through 11:00 PM that Friday, guests will be welcomed onto the famous Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank, where they’ll enjoy “A Force Filled Star Wars Evening on the Lot,” complete with a three-course meal, dessert reception, “Star Wars” character meet-and-greets, and of course a screening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” Attendees will also leave the event with an exclusive gift.
The only caveats here are that the event is only open to D23 Gold and Gold Family Members, and each ticket costs $355 (including a processing fee).
A limited number of D23 Gold and Gold Family Members will have an opportunity to enjoy a Force-filled three-course dinner with beer, wine, and a signature cocktail inside a private Star Wars-themed room of the Buena Vista Commissary. Following the meal, guests will indulge in an interstellar dessert reception and Star Wars character meet-and-greet experience under the stars.
In addition, Super Delicious, the producers behind Cupcake Wars and Halloween Wars, will be on site filming the delivery and reveal of a custom-made cake, designed specifically for this special event.
Attendees will also experience Star Wars: The Last Jedi inside a screening room rarely opened to the general public in the Frank G. Wells building.
To commemorate the evening, guests will receive a D23-exclusive Star Wars: The Last Jedi commemorative gift perfect for any Star Wars fan.
If you’re available and meet the criteria necessary to attend, this sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime way to experience the latest blockbuster entry in the ongoing “Star Wars” saga. Be sure to visit the official D23 website for more information and official ticket sales resources.
