Get ready — new Star Wars toys are coming on Triple Force Friday
“Force Friday” is what Disney has traditionally called its end-of-week debut of new Star Wars toys each Fall.
This year, they’re changing that to Triple Force Friday, since it will include action figures, clothing, collectibles, and books for three new projects set in the galaxy far, far away.
At 12:01 a.m. on Oct. 4, playthings will be on shelves for:
- The as-yet-untitled Episode IX, J.J. Abrams’ conclusion of the Skywalker saga, due in theaters in December.
- The live-action Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, starring Pedro Pascal as a masked gunslinger trying to survive the collapse of the Empire after Return of the Jedi.
- And the EA/Respawn video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, about a knight who survives the extermination of the rest of the lightsaber-wielding peacekeepers.
Toymaker Hasbro, which holds the license on Star Wars playthings, hasn’t shown any of the products yet, and don’t expect any until the movie itself is showcased at the Star Wars Celebration fan gathering in Chicago this April.
As part of the announcement at New York Toy Fair today, Disney also said it will launch a new line of toys that same day for Frozen II, which hits theaters on Nov. 22.
Here’s a rundown of all the new Star Wars projects coming in 2019.
