The Dodgers and Lucasfilm celebrated the 30th Anniversary of 'The Empire Strikes Back' on May 21 with the first 20,000 fans receiving a commemorative poster. Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2-D2, Boba Fett, Stormtroopers and X-Wing pilots gave fans a small treat before the game, posing for photo in center field, while Chewbacca threw out the first pitch.
