The "Find the Force" event will cover 20,000 retail stores spanning 30 countries, and will run from September 1 to September 3.

Continue below to get all the details, including info on a related sweepstakes, and to watch a video. Users can take photos and share videos of the character, much like with Pokemon Go.

Lucasfilm and Disney have announced their second "Force Friday" event, which they're simply calling 'Force Friday II.' The first Force Friday was held in 2015, and this upcoming one will be held on September 1, the companies say. The establishments will hawk merchandise from "The Last Jedi," the follow-up to 2015's "The Force Awakens", which inspired the initial Force Friday, so expect some fantastic finds, along with the chance to fraternize, at least technologically, with the characters. In the style of Pokémon GO, the new mobile feature will let aspiring Jedis locate characters from The Last Jedi IRL, including a "new" character. You'll then be able to crank up your Star Wars app (assuming you have it fully updated), and when you point your camera at the poster, it will be replaced by a unique character featured in The Force Awakens.

North Korea has conducted two nuclear tests and dozens of missile tests since the beginning of previous year , including ICBM tests.

The experience runs from September 1 through September 3, but a sneak peek of one of the new characters is already available if you download the app now. There are 15 total AG characters to find across the three days. Once located, fans who scan it with the app will reveal a character who will appear to be right there in the store.

"The Last Jedi", the eighth movie in the "Star Wars" film saga, arrives in theaters in December.
