UPDATE #2: The official website of the San Francisco Giants has added the following promotional poster and details regarding the Star Wars Day scheduled for September 4, 2011.

Giveaway Item Detail: The giveaway item included with the Star Wars special event ticket is "Brian Wilson in Carbonite" statue. The statue is three sided, with one side featuring the iconic Han Solo in carbonite pose featured in "The Empire Strikes Back." A second side features Brian Wilson, in his trademark post-save celebration pose, frozen in carbonite similar to Han. The third side features graphics celebrating the Giants and Star Wars.

Postgame Movie Screening: The postgame screening of "The Empire Strikes Back" will begin approximately 30-45 minutes after the final out of the game. Seating for the screening will be in the Lower Box sections of the stadium, and will be general admission, first come first serve.
