Today, Disney showcased some brand new merchandise for the upcoming Star Wars film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This merchandise has been made to coincide with the Star Wars Force for Change fund, which is a charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney that harnesses the strength of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world.
There will be a pin that has the logo and select characters from the upcoming film, as well as shirts for both adults and kids.
Twenty-five percent of the retail sale price from each of these products will be donated to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power, a program that uses the world’s first WEARABLE-FOR-GOOD™ to give kids the power to get active and save lives by earning points that unlock food packets for malnourished children around the world.
These items will debut in Booth 3463 at Star Wars Celebration, which is a Star Wars fan event coming to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from April 13-16, 2017.
Following the event, select locations at Disney Parks listed below will carry these items through the summer. These products will not be available on DisneyStore.com or the Shop Disney Parks app. These are the first retail items for the new film, and in coming months as the movie debut gets closer, more merchandise will be revealed.
