PRACTICE TO END:



(SOT: Bush: The Senate also has a duty


to promptly consider each of

these nominees on the Senate floor,
discuss and debate their

and then give them the up or down vote
they deserve.)

GRAPHIC=Star Wars 2346 Long lines and box office records


are expected tomorrow -- when the
latest installment of the Star Wars
franchise hits the screen nationwide.

Episode three, Revenge of the
Sith, will set up the original trilogy
started in the 70's.

But even if you're not a fan --
it's hard to escape the marketing blitz

that's accompanied this movie.

Chris Huntington has more on
what's both a cultural icon, and a BIG
business.

AND APPARENTLY WITH ALL OF US....THE
MARKETING FORCE THAT IS.

PREPARE TO BE BOMBARDED BY THE ULTIMATE
STAR WARS MERCHANDISING BLITZ.

WHO KNEW YODA CARED ABOUT CALORIES ?



THE LITTLE GUY IS FRONTING A MILLION
DOLLAR STAR WARS SWEEPSTAKES FOR PEPSI.

7 -11 IS PUMPING OUT " DARTH DEW

SLURPEES".

KELLOGG'S IS PACKING LIGHT-UP
SABER-SPOONS INTO CEREAL BOXES.

YOU CAN GET M&M'S FROM THE DARK SIDE,

STAR WARS RING-TONES FROM CINGULAR
WIRELESS,

STAR WARS SRCATCH-OFF GAMES AT BURGER
KING,

AND OF COURSE ACTION FIGURES, TOYS AND
GADGETS FROM THE LIKES OF HASBRO AND

LEGGO.

CNN'S CORPORATE COUSINS AOL AND MOVIE
PHONE ARE IN ON THE ACTION AS OFFICIAL

ONLINE PROMOTERS.

THERE IS EVEN A STAR WARS VIDEO GAME.



if you don't like the video game you
can always read the novel



WHILE THERE'S NOTHING NOVEL ABOUT MOVIE
MERCHANDISING....

GEORGE LUCAS...THE CREATOR, PRODUCER
AND MASTER OF THE STAR WARS
UNIVERSE...HAS

BY ALL ACCOUNTS AND ANY ACCOUNTING
MEASURE...RAISED THE STAKES OF THE
GAME.

TOTAL BOX OFFICE, HOME VIDEO AND
MERCHANDISE SALES FOR THE SIX STAR WARS

FILMS

IS EXPECTED TO EASILY TOP
$20-BILLION..FAR MORE THAN ANY OTHER
FILM SERIES HAS

EVER MADE AND GREATER THAN THE GDP OF
SEVERAL EUROPEAN COUNTRIES.

MARKETING FROM EARLIER STAR WARS FILMS
WAS SO AGGRESSIVE IT BECAME A

JOKE...LITERALLY



Merchandising, merchandising: where the
real money from the movie is made.



BUT WITH "REVENGE OF THE SITH" BILLED
AS THE LAST STAR WARS FILM...LUCAS HAS

PULLED OUT ALL THE STOPS.



for the last hurrah I think he has
opened the door to a lot of
merchandising

opportunities

it is a feeding frenzy



...A FRENZY FEEDING ON THE STAR WARS
FAITHFUL...MOST OF WHOM GREW UP WITH
THE

FILMS AND MANY WHO STILL SHELL OUT
ASTRONOMICAL SUMS OF MONEY TO COLLECT

MEMORABILIA OR DRESS THE PART.


WITH EVERYTHING EVER RELATED TO STAR
WARS PROBABLY AT LEAST 50 THOUSAND,

EASILY.

STILL, NONE OF THE FANS WE SPOKE TO
SEEMED CONCERNED THAT YODA WAS HAWKING
DIET

SODA.

EVIDENTLY EVEN A 900 YEAR OLD JEDI
MASTER IS ENTITLED TO CASH IN FOR HIS

RETIREMENT.
