Star Wars, Disney and Hasbro just announced the second ever Force Friday. The event where they will release photos of The Last Jedi toys, which will hit the stores on September 1st.
With the announcement, companies will also reveal the packagin for The Last Jedi toys. While this may not seem exciting for many fans, the boxes show us our first look of our heroes Rey, Finn and Poe Dameron in Star Wars Episode VIII.
Most notable difference is that Rey is sporting longer, sort of Qui-Gon Jinn-like hair than in The Force Awakens. Rey is also wielding the Skywalker lightsaber, same one she was handing over to Luke in the end of Episode VII.
Director Rian Johnson also shared a stormtrooper set photo on Tumblr. Two lines of stormtroopes can be seen with one of the stormtroopers lifting his helmet revealing his face.
Johnson wrote “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I can’t wait. See you there.”
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will premiere on theathres on December 15th 2017.
