The Merchandise Artwork of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Revealed…

Force Friday II event announced for worldwide release

 

Where were you on Force Friday?

The global event is a special day on the calendar of every Star Wars fan because it just so happens to be the all-important day when the new range of merchandise arrives on the store shelves. With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the toy manufacturer Hasbro gave the fans a completely new experience by devoting an entire day to the unboxing of the new range in merchandise and action figures. They branded it Force Friday, and it was a renowned success that was rejoiced amongst the devoted fan base.

Unfortunately, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story received a far more subdued version of the occasion and was christened Rogue Friday by the fans, a time where we were all encouraged to Go Rogue but the merchandise released was greatly reduced from the abundant levels of its predecessor.

Featuring striking images of a lightsaber-wielding Rey, Poe Dameron, and Finn, the artwork gives us our first taste of the tone the movie is expected to take when it arrives upon the cinema screen on December 15th.
