The Ceremonial Dress worn by Princess Leia in Star Wars: A New Hope is just one of many Hollywood movie props going under the hammer next month.
Next month’s Propstore Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will take place from June 28 to June 30 and offer fans the chance to bid on items from their favourite TV shows and films. Collectibles worth over $12 million will be going under the hammer during the three-day event, with more than 80 unique lots up for grabs.
Included in that list of items being auctioned is Princess Leia’s Screen-and-Photo Matched Ceremonial Dress, as worn by Carrie Fisher in Star Wars: A New Hope. The one-of-a-kind prop is expected to fetch between $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 but could potentially surpass even that figure.
“This year, Propstore’s Los Angeles Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction contains many never seen before treasures from film and television content,” said Brandon Alinger, Propstore COO, “including Princess Leia’s Ceremonial Dress from the end of Star Wars which was once thought to be lost and the screen-matched “Evil” Clown who dragged Robbie under the bed in Poltergeist. Whether you’re an advanced collector or you just learned it’s possible to own items like these, we’ll have over 1,400 original lots of prop costumes and more to choose from, representing over 500 of your favourite titles.”
Other pop culture pieces to be auctioned off will include Batman’s Batpod from The Dark Knight, Peter Quill’s light-up Star-Lord helmet from Guardians of the Galaxy, Harrison Ford’s costume from Blade Runner and many others.
Registration for the event is now live at Propstore’s website and online proxy bids can be submitted from May 31.
