Calling all Star Wars Fans! #StarWars
You may know that my family and I are HUGE Marvel fans but there’s one thing hubby and I love even more (I know it’s hard to imagine) and that’s Star Wars!
Yes we are Star Wars fans, I can’t tell you how much I adored Harrison Ford as Han Solo, he was my dream guy and even today Harrison Ford is one of my favorite actors of all time. I admit too at one point I want to be Princess Lei, you know the butt-kicking, sassy Lei in the Empire Strikes Back.
Now my daughter and old and new Star Wars fans can be a part of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS products are set to be unveiled in the world’s first-ever global live toy unboxing event. Unfolding over 18 hours in 15 cities and 12 countries, the event will see highlights from the range of epic merchandise revealed in a rolling New Year’s Eve style celebration featuring top digital stars from the Maker Studios network.
“Star Wars toys have always played an important role in how our fans interact with the Saga,” says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “They’ve inspired multiple generations to relive the experience of the movies and to create new adventures all their own. These spectacular Star Wars: The Force Awakens products will continue that tradition.”
The Star Wars YouTube channel will host the live stream, which kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 2), with the grand finale at Lucasfilm in San Francisco at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Thursday, Sept. 3. Each of the 15 locations will reveal a new product inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The full schedule also is available at www.StarWars.com.
Several countries will join the live stream from YouTube Spaces (Berlin, Tokyo, London), with Star Wars commentators Anthony Carboni and Andi Gutierrez hosting the event from the YouTube Space, Los Angeles.
You can bet we’ll following along as it gives us something to look forward to as we anxiously await for Star Wars the Force Awakens to premier in theaters December 2015! The holidays are going to be ahem out of this world this year J
