LONDON (AP) — The jacket worn by actor Harrison Ford in the ‘‘Star Wars’’ film ‘‘The Empire Strikes Back’’ is expected to fetch up to 1 million pounds ($1.3 million) in an auction of rare movie memorabilia in Britain next month.

The blue-grey cotton jacket, worn in the 1980 film by Ford’s character, Han Solo, is one of more than 600 costumes, original scripts and props up for auction Sept. 20 at London’s BFI Imax.

The auction is organized by the Prop Store, a UK-based film and television memorabilia company.

Other items include a light saber from ‘‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of the Sith,’’ actor Johnny Depp’s costume from the 1990 film ‘‘Edward Scissorhands,’’ and a hat worn by Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump.
