Happy May Day! Today kicks off an exciting month-long celebration of all things Star Wars! On Wednesday, the world will now celebrate the fan-created/corporate-embraced holiday May the Fourth! On this day, fans will show their love for the Saga and companies will release new product for collectors new and old.
Hasbro Pulse will be kicking off the day with a Fan First Wednesday Livestream on YouTube which will most likely reveal new Vintage Collection and Black Series figures.
On May 5th, you’ll find us at our local watering hole for some Revenge of the 5th trivia!
Star Wars will celebration its 45th birthday on May 25th aka OG Star Wars Day.
Then of course we have Star Wars Celebration beginning on May 26th! Just this past week the show revealed the many panels, podcasts and activities that will be presented on the Star Wars-centered convention. We will be spending a lot of time on the Collecting Track this year. Some amazing folks already configured them into calendars for easy of planning your trip!
May 27th is going to be a busy day and will include two firsts will take place and they both involve the same person! Obi-Wan Kenobi debuts on Disney+ the same day Ewan McGregor appears and signs at Celebration for the first time! We couldn’t be happier to have a Friday autograph time with our favorite Jedi and look forward to sharing the experience with fellow fans!
Then on the Twin Suns Stage, Hasbro will hold their panel at 3:30.
Join members of the Hasbro & Lucasfilm team as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line, including the Black Series and The Vintage Collection. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure and premium roleplay offerings from throughout the saga. Word on the Holonet is there may also be a few surprises. May the Force be with you!
The next highlight will take place later that night as we will be attending the Disneyland After Dark Star Wars Event. This event we have attended at both Orlando and Anaheim and will see Star Wars take over all of Disneyland with many rides in Tomorrowland getting rebranded for the event.
Then on the 28th you can join Jake Stevens and Matthew Fox as they take you down the rabbit hole of Kenner nostalgia and vintage-themed products that have been made since 1985 at their Collecting Track panel at noon on Saturday.
And then on May 29th, Celebration will come to a close and with luck it will announce the next time we all get to come together and celebrate the greatest film Saga of them all.
We have been looking forward to May for a long time and we are positive, “this will be a [month] long remembered!”
May the Figures be with you!
