Find the Force on Your Phone During Force Friday 2017

On September 1st, Star Wars collectible fans everywhere will get their first chance to pick up toys and products related to The Last Jedi, the 8th episode of the epic spacefaring saga.  Disney has announced its plans to bring the world of the films to life through a unique augmented reality experience for those who venture in search of Jedi collectibles.

In order to get in on the AR action, fans will have to download the Star Wars app to their phones, and find in-store displays which can be scanned.  Once you Find the Force, 1 of 15 different characters from The Last Jedi, such as Rey or Chewbacca, will appear on your phone screen, and you can use that character to take photos or videos in the environment surrounding the display.

This AR activity will be happening the whole weekend of Force Friday II, and the same displays can be scanned on multiple days, so Star Wars fans have a chance to find all of their favorite characters before the event ends.  How exciting!  Are you ready to Find the Force?  We are!

Be sure to join Sideshow online during Force Friday, September 1st, for a day celebrating Star Wars and collecting, all while we gear up for The Last Jedi in December.  (We’re hoping to score some Porgs…) Are you going to participate in your local Force Friday?  What releases are you anticipating most?
