Before we go on...

Presenting the official "The Rise of Skywalker" Trailer:

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker product will be available starting October 4, 2019 as one part of  Triple Force Friday. 

Triple Force Friday will celebrate the launch of brand-new products from a trio of original Star Wars entertainment events, including products inspired by:
  • The highly anticipated, final installment of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: Episode IX
  • The first-ever Star Wars live-action series, The Mandalorian, set to debut exclusively on Disney+.
  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order – a brand-new action adventure game releasing Holiday 2019 from  EA and Respawn
As Star Wars fans have come to anticipate, products from toys to collectibles, housewares, books, apparel and more will go on sale beginning at 12:01 a.m. on October 4, 2019. Stores around the world will join the festivities with in-store events and midnight openings.
Commemorating merchandise introduced in advance of the episodic films, Triple Force Friday is an anticipated event for Star Wars fans around the world. Past iterations, including a live unboxing event that rolled through 15 cities worldwide in 2015 and a global in-store digital scavenger hunt using augmented reality technology in 2017, brought out millions of people who shared their experiences.
“With Disney’s Frozen 2 and Star Wars: Episode IX both launching in the same year, it will be a notable time for the toy industry,” says Juli Lennett, Vice President, Industry Advisor for The NPD Group’s U.S. toys division. “If history is any indication of future success, both Frozen and Star Wars will be among the top-selling properties of 2019, just as they were in 2014 and 2015/2016, respectively.”
