Han Solo jacket up for auction

Star Wars fans, you can lay your hands on that cool leather jacket Han Solo wore in last year's movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

US actor Harrison Ford, who played the role, is auctioning off the signed dark brown apparel to raise funds for NYU Langone Medical Center and Faces (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures).

Available at IfOnly.com, its bidding amount currently stands at US$32,000 (S$43,830).

Ford, 73, revealed earlier this month that his 26-year-old daughter Georgia once suffered from epilepsy.

He said in a statement: "I've been very impressed with the work NYU and the Faces team have done in the field of epilepsy research, and I hope this jacket will provide some means to further that exploration. This is a cause that's near and dear to me, and unlike the cynical Han Solo, I've got a good feeling about this."
