Force Friday Happenings


This morning, September 4th, 2015, many Star Wars fans were lined up at midnight at various retailers to take part in what has been announced as Force Friday. Growing anticipation for the film Star Wars: The Force Awakens has led to the release of some awesome products for fans to enjoy. Toys, T-shirts, figures, collectibles, you name it...it's been released. Some will be held to withhold main plot points, but items such as the Kylo Ren Lightsaber and the ever adorable BB-8 app-enabled Droid are available for purchase.

Star Wars BB-8 from Sphero
Suggested Retail Price $149.99

Kylo Ren Lightsaber Available at Disney Store
Suggested Retail Price $29.95

I myself bee-lined to DisneyStore.com to see what cool stuff I could order to add to my own growing Star Wars memorabilia collection (Use offer code FORCE today only to get free shipping on any Star Wars purchase). The Darth Vader ornament will be mine!! There are also some great limited edition t-shirts that will be used for when we finally see the film in theaters December 18th, 2015. :D

That's not all for today, folks!! So on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight on ABC, fans that tune in will be treated to a fun product reveal with Jimmy and his security guard sidekick Guillermo, showcasing some ever cool voice changing masks that will be exclusive to Disney Store.

ONE MORE THING!!
So some of you may have noticed this morning that there was some buzz on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram when the Today Show announced that Starbucks would be participating in Force Friday by serving some Star Wars themed Frappuchinos. Well, it turns out only the Downtown Disneyland location in Anaheim will be the location to participate. But have no fear. We got the recipes for each of the featured drinks to share with our readers so you could have a little bit of The Force in your Friday. ;) Below are the drinks with their recipes.
