NEW YORK (AP) — How would you like to own Liam Neeson's light saber from ``Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace,'' or Julia Roberts' wedding dress from ``Runaway Bride?''

These items and hundreds of other pieces of movie and celebrity memorabilia will be up for auction next month through Sotheby's.

The online auction will take place Feb. 15-March 7, and the live auction is set for March 6.

Neeson helped coordinate the Movie Action for Children auction to benefit UNICEF's efforts to prevent transmission of HIV in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast.
