Disney has announced it will stage yet another Force Friday event later this year that will give hardcore fans a chance to buy many products for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. During this announcement, we get the first look at what Rey, Finn and Poe look like in the new movie releasing this December.
Disney announced more details on the Star Wars website. As you can see from the screenshot above, we get a glimpse of the main heroes in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Poe and Finn pretty much look the same as they appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Rey on the other hand is completing her training as a Jedi and now has her hair out instead of being tied up like in the previous movie.
As for Force Friday, you can book your calendars for September 1st, 2017. At 12:01 a.m. on that day, stores from around the world will be selling lots of merchandise from the upcoming movie. This includes toys, t-shirts, and lots of other neat products. Disney, Hasbro and other product manufacturers will have lots of new things to share with us this September.
Disney says most of the information about the new toys will be kept a secret until Force Friday. As always, new characters will be revealed in toy form so there is a lot to get excited about. Not to mention fans still need a proper toy of Luke Skywalker as they have yet to release a 3.75 or 6 inch figure of how he appeared in The Force Awakens.
Anyway, let's hope this year's Force Friday event is more organized than the one that was for The Force Awakens back in 2015. Hasbro should be more ready for Star Wars fever as most of the good toys sold out immediately last time. Now that they know how eager fans can be, hopefully more stock is supplied in retail stores.
