It’s shaping up to be a great weekend for people who like to get lost in a galaxy far, far away. The Star Wars Celebration begins tomorrow in Anaheim, California and the first two episodes of Obi Wan Kenobi arrived at Disney’s streaming service a day later. Obi-Wan will also be joining the fight in Fortnite tomorrow night. And we should really start celebrating Star Wars now because today is the anniversary of A new hope‘s theatrical release.
If past Star Wars celebrations are an example to follow, we’ll see plenty of collectible announcements over the weekend. Some toy makers are stepping out ahead of the potential news bombardment. Funko just announced the first wave of pops based on the Obi Wan Kenobi show, and I guess we’ll see more in the coming days.
This line features a new version of Obi-Wan that looks slightly older than him Vengeance of the Sith. We also get a menacing sculpt of Darth Vader, which looks exactly as you’d expect. The only new character is Reva, the third sister, who looks ready to ignite her lightsaber. A deluxe version of Obi-Wan riding an Eopie is also on the way. All of these numbers are expected to reach retailers in October. You can see them below:
