Disney has three major Star Wars releases to promote this holiday shopping season. The company will be revealing its upcoming lineup of merch and toys during a global livestream event on YouTube, and the livestream will start a weeklong countdown to Triple Force Friday. During the event, the company will reveal the new products inspired by “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” “The Mandalorian,” and the video game “Jedi: Fallen Order.”
The livestream starts on September 26th at 2 p.m. ET, and fans can watch the event on the Star Wars YouTube page. The livestream is being hosted from Pinewood Studios in London, the location where “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” was filmed. The video will include a mix of live and recorded vignettes, and actors from across the franchise will reveal the new products scheduled to hit stores this fall. The new merch is releasing on October 4th, and the new video game releases on November 15th.
Star Wars talent participating in the global reveal will include Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Anthony Daniels, Billy Dee Williams, Joonas Suotamo, Keri Russell, Naomi Ackie, Kelly Marie Tran, Pedro Pascal, Cameron Monaghan, and Gina Carano. Livestream viewers will also be treated to the worldwide premiere of a new trailer for “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order,” along with other special surprises from across the Star Wars galaxy.
Warwick Davis, best known for his roles as ‘Wicket the Ewok’ in “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” and as ‘Willow Ufgood’ in “Willow,” will host the livestream event at Pinewood Studios.
As well as seeing new characters like ‘Zorii,’ ‘Jannah,’ ‘The Mandalorian,’ ‘Cal Kestis’ and the new droid ‘D-O’ in product form for the first time, fans will get their first look at the vast array of new products that bring the characters to life in new and unexpected ways, spanning toys, apparel and accessories, books, gaming, tech and home goods.
Select retailers in major markets around the world, including flagship Disney store locations in the U.S., will open at midnight on October 4th to celebrate the launch.
