Here is what they had to say on the official D23 website:

Hello, what have we here? D23 Members are invited to “punch it” to Pasadena, California, for a 40th anniversary drive-in screening of The Empire Strikes Back at the Rose Bowl Stadium!

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is one of the most beloved sequels in movie history, expanding the Star Wars galaxy and bringing to life so many elements of the saga still cherished by fans today.

We invite you to join us in this most impressive, socially-distanced experience as we celebrate 40 years of this groundbreaking film! Guests are encouraged to dress up, ignite their lightsabers, and enjoy this epic on the big screen! No disintegrations, please.

We think this sounds like so much fun and we can’t wait to grab some popcorn and watch!
