Walt Disney World has a whole year of events lined up for the 50th anniversary of the park in 2021, and Lucasfilm has just announced they plan to kick off a celebration for their 50th in 2021 as well!
According to the Star Wars website, a celebration will kick off with commemorative, fan-favorite 50th anniversary Star Wars products beginning in January. Then, new products will continue to be released throughout the year, including special edition product releases.
“Consumer products have always been an integral part of the Star Wars fan experience, and they remain a constant force in pop-culture today,” says Paul Southern, Lucasfilm senior vice president, Licensing and Franchise. “To commemorate Lucasfilm’s 50 years of storytelling, we look forward to honoring this consumer products legacy and bringing to life brand-new products, games, and publishing offerings that celebrate our future with Lucasfilm’s exciting feature films and Disney+ series ahead.”
George Lucas founded Lucasfilm in 1971 and since has branched out to create countless movies, cartoons, comics, and more. The franchise even led to the opening of Star Wars Galaxy Edge at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Stay tuned for more updates on what we can expect from both Lucasfilm and Walt Disney World for their joint 50th anniversary in 2021.
