Ebay Launches Star Wars Experience

Posted on September 9, 2011

Ebay has partnered with Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for a Star Wars destination page on eBay. The site was launched to tie-in with the release of the Star Wars saga on Blu-ray.

The site includes daily trivia, quizzes and sneak peeks from the Blu-ray. It also includes auctions of rare Star Wars merchandise and VIP experiences. All proceeds from the auctions will benefit Stand Up To Cancer. Auctions begin on September 16th at 12:00 PM EDT and continue until 12:00 PM EDT on September 23 in the US, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.

An infographic was also released that reveals some amazing eBay Star Wars facts, such as a Star Wars item is sold on eBay every two seconds. It also shows that Star Wars outperforms other franchises and celebrities, such as Harry Potter and Justin Bieber. We are relieved that people are buying more Star Wars and Harry Potter items than Justin Beiber merchandise.
