✅- We're pressing play at 5:00 PM ET on May 21st
✅- Sit back, relax, and enjoy the film with the app in-hand!
✅- Every few minutes, a new pack will appear in our Watch Party Store for you to open, each of them containing cards from 3 brand new sets: "Did You Know?", "Concept to Screen: ESB", and our "40th Anniversary Commemorative Series"
✅- If at first, you do not see a pack, refresh the store
✅- You'll want to open these packs for exclusive variants only found during this Watch Party!
✅- In-between packs, chat with the Card Trader team about the movie in a dedicated article
