Time to start saving up! Our friends at Jedi News are reporting that they have heard from multiple Star Wars licensees that a Force Friday event, when all the merchandise for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will hit shelves, is scheduled for September 30th.
Exclusive #ForceFriday returns with #RogueOne products and more on... 30th September 2016! #StarWars— JediNewsLIVE (@JediNewsLIVE) February 13, 2016
To clarify, heard #forcefriday date from 3 different licensees today.— JediNewsLIVE (@JediNewsLIVE) February 13, 2016
This is exciting news. Force Friday was a fun event for a lot of fans last year when The Force Awakens merchandise was released. Hopefully, with the experience of already having done one of these last year, they will be able to avoid some of the issues, like not having enough product on the shelves, that surrounded the first Force Friday. This also probably means we won't be seeing any Rogue One toys revealed until right before the event (I hope they bring back the global unboxing event, that was a fun idea!)
Are you excited for Force Friday 2016? Let us know in the comments!
