Earlier this year we introduced Star Wars into the Disney Store family, and we are thrilled with the positive response it has elicited from our Guests. Our current assortment includes Talking Action Figures, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper roleplay costumes, apparel, select offerings from Hasbro’s Black Series and more, and this is just the beginning. We are excited to be rolling out new product in the coming months featuring everyone’s favorite characters from a galaxy far, far away, including new interactive lightsabers, character hoodies, back to school gear and several items that will feature Princess Leia.
Star Wars fans will see Figurine Sets that will include iconic characters such as Luke Skywalker, R2-D2, Princess Leia and Yoda, which will be arriving in Stores and online this holiday. Later this summer, Star Wars will be added to DisneyStore.com’s Create Your Own Shop (exclusive to North America), allowing Guests to customize select product with their favorite characters. For Halloween, Disney Store will offer updated roleplay accessories, as well as a Princess Leia costume.
We are excited to continue developing products with the whole family in mind, and we look forward to supporting Star Wars for many years to come.
