Each year, May the 4th is a “holiday” long-awaited by Star Wars fans around the globe! Dubbed “May The 4th Be With You,” aka Star Wars Day, one of the highlights of this celebration is all the new product drops featuring the latest galactic swag for fans of all ages! Without further ado, check out the grand assortment for this year…
First up, no May the 4th celebration would be complete
without the signature
“May The 4th Be With You” logo! Each year
our designers create a new look, and this year’s may be one of my favorites! It
includes a stormtrooper and Imperial Pilot along with the fastest “hunk of junk”
in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon!
The latest legacy lightsaber hilt is here, but this one is like no other… Wrapped in an orange cloth and bundled with the reforged Skywalker lightsaber hilt, General Leia Organa’s lightsaber hilt is packaged up in a limited edition box set of 3,000 inspired by the emotional final scene of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” It even plays the iconic “Force” theme when opened!
Let’s be honest… I’m going to need a separate closet for my Spirit Jersey collection one day; and now, I have two more I MUST add to my collection. Featuring the iconic Star Wars logo and designs inspired by fan-favorite characters from across the galaxy, this sleek black spirit jersey is definitely my top pick! Fans of R2-D2 will beep-boop for this droid-inspired spirit jersey featuring R2-D2’s legendary design.
And last, but not least, give in to the dark side with an all new headband designed by Ashley Eckstein and themed to the Sith Lord himself, Darth Vader. This imposing accessory is available now for pre-order on shopDisney.com and later this month at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.
The light side, the dark side… the soft side? Now you can collect the latest Disney Parks Wishables series inspired by Star Tours. Each blind bag includes one of four plush that pays tribute to the popular attraction, or you may find the infamous ”chase” variant; but you won’t know which one you have until you open the bag! “In my experience there’s no such thing as luck” said Obi-Wan Kenobi…
Today also marks the premiere of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch,”
the new Lucasfilm animated series on Disney+! The show follows the elite and
experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in the final season of The
Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the
immediate aftermath of the Clone War. To celebrate, rock your best– err…
baddest– look with a new
tee and baseball
hat inspired by the show!
Each of the products above are available beginning today on shopDisney.com,
at Star Wars Galactic Outpost at Disney Springs and across select
locations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.
Those visiting Batuu this month are in for some surprises… New local artistries will be rolling out across Black Spire Outpost from exotic creatures including a new Loth Cat and Lava Meerkat at Creature Stall to plush of Dok Ondar, Darth Maul and Jar Jar Binks at Toydarian Toymaker. Keep your eyes peeled for those new additions, only at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort!
And if you’re at Disneyland park, reservations are now available for Savi’s Workshop in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Customize your own legendary lightsaber and become one with the Force. In this covert workshop, you can construct your very own lightsaber and bring it to life through the power of kyber crystals.
