Star Wars, Hasbro, And Disney just announced the second-ever Force Friday – The event when they will be releasing all of The Last Jedi toys to the public. At midnight on September 1, retailers will begin selling the new collection of Star Wars: Episode VIII toys.
The first Force Friday took place in 2015, preparing for the release of Episode VII – The Force Awakens.
With the announcement, the companies also unveiled the packaging for the line of toys. While that may not seem like much, the boxes showed off the faces of the film’s three main characters.
These boxes sport the first look at Rey, Finn, and Poe Dameron in the new film.
Rey looks to be sporting some longer hair this go-round, but that’s the only difference in anyone’s appearance. The only other thing worth noticing here is that Finn has returned to action, after being knocked out at the end of The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, from writer/director Rian Johnson, is in post-production now for a December 15, 2017 release. The film follows-up and continues the story of the next generation of the saga as Rey, Poe, Finn, and Kylo Ren find their place in the galaxy and follow the legacy of Luke Skywalker, Leia, and Han Solo. Daisy Ridley returns to star as Rey, with other returning stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong’o Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa. Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern join the cast in as-yet-unrevealed roles.
