With a new Star Wars movie in cinemas every year of the foreseeable future, it goes without saying that the “merchandising! merchandising! merchandising!” would be in overdrive with new toys and collectibles for fans of all ages on their way ahead of December’s debut of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Disney has launched a fun short film for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that is actually a commercial for the new toys and collectibles from this upcoming spin-off movie. Some have described it as similar to "Robot Chicken", with various action figures and toys and Lego minifigs being animated with stop-motion and other trickery in an adventure to steal the Death Star plans - just like the movie! No surprise there. The focus is on the badass new hero, Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones in the film. Director Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn, also makes an appearance as does the new droid K-2SO. This short was actually made by fans, and they've also launched a contest for more fan-made short films - & have fun.
The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toys and collectibles will debut worldwide on Sept. 30. Hopefully this year it will be a bit easier to get our hands on them than it was on Force Friday in 2015.
