It seems as though we have been celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars for months now, but this Thursday, May 25 marks the actual 40 year mark since the original release of Star Wars in theaters. So it should come as no surprise that the Disney Store is celebrating the occasion with collectible merchandise. Thanks to Yahoo Movies, we have the first look at the lineup that will be available at Disney Stores on Thursday.
