A Short Time In The Future In A Mailbox Not So Far Away...
The US Postal Service has teamed up with Lucasfilm Ltd. to bring some character to the mail.
To commemorate the 30-year anniversary of Star Wars, the US Postal Service will announce a stamp of the famous epic March 28.
As a "teaser" for the upcoming announcement, mailboxes across the country will be fitted with a special covering to make them look like R2-D2, a popular robot from the film.
The approximately 400 special mailboxes will be in 200 major cities nationwide, according to the Associated Press.
People are strongly urged not to tamper with the mailboxes, Anita T. Bizzotto, the post office's chief marketing officer said, noting that it is a crime, reports the AP.
