Stars use the Force to stand up to cancer



screen_shot_2011-09-19_at_8.50.09_am.pngTo mark the release of Star Wars TM: The Complete Saga on Blu-ray, Lucasfilm and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) are using the Force to help in the fight.

Check out this hilarious SU2C video starring celebrity ambassadors Aziz Ansari, Zach Galifianakis, Bill Hader, Ed Helms, Ken Jeong, Jaime King, Seth Rogen, Andy Samberg and Emma Stone – along with Star Wars alumnus Samuel L. Jackson. They have come together to explore their inner Jedi and Sith personas to raise awareness for cancer research.

To help the cause and get some cool Star Wars stuff you can purchase special Star Wars Stand Up To Cancer t-shirts and you also can bid on exclusive Star Wars items in a special ebay auction. The auction features rare and exclusive items like a one-of-a-kind Star Wars edition 2012 Volkswagen Passat and a special dinner with filmmakers George Lucas, Chris Columbus, Francis Ford Coppola, Philip Kaufman and John Lasseter. All auctions end at 4 PM PDT on September 23. Direct donations to SU2C can be made here.
