During today’s Star Wars Merchandise Sneak Peek, panelists Brad Schoeneberg, Tracie Alt, Cody Hampton, Amanda Rubinos-Luna, Elisa Melchiori and John Henselmeier took to the Twin Suns Stage with host Amy Ratcliffe to give a behind-the-scenes look at how the merchandise of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge was created. The panel also gave us a sneak-peek at new products coming soon to Disney Parks and shopDisney.
First, let’s take a look at some exciting new Lightsaber hilts coming soon to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and other Star Wars retail locations at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. To celebrate the premiere of the new limited-series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” streaming now on Disney+, we got a first look at the new Obi-Wan Legacy Lightsaber Set, coming soon to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities and available for pre-order at shopDisney beginning May 31st at 7:00 a.m. PT. The Legacy Lightsaber Set includes the Lightsaber collectible based on the lightsaber used by the iconic Jedi Master in “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” and includes the blade, hilt, belt clip and display stand.
But that’s not the only new Legacy Lightsaber collectible you’ll be able to get your hands on … soon, you’ll be able to add Darth Sidious and Plo Koon Lightsaber collectibles to your collection, coming to Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort later this summer.
You’ll also be able to pick up a brand new plush during your travels to Batuu! Younglings will love cuddling up with this adorable Therii plush available only at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. Soon, you’ll be able to stop by the creature cart at Black Spire Outpost to bring home your very own Gorg plush!
Need somewhere secure to store your credits and valuables? Check out this new Camatono Case, featuring a customizable lock feature and a sleek cylindrical design that’s small enough to be tucked under the average humanoid’s arm – perfect for a quick getaway! Travelers can get their hands on these beginning tonight at Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite and beginning May 31ston shopDisney.com.
You might remember that in 2020 we asked you to vote for which Lightsaber hilt you’d most like Dok-Ondar to add to his Den of Antiquities, and earlier this year the Cal Kestis Legacy Lightsaber Hilt was added to his collection. Dok-Ondar was so impressed with your last selection that once again, he’s asking you to cast your vote as he looks to expand his hilt offerings!
Beginning today, fans can vote on the Disney Parks Blog to let Dok-Ondar know which Lightsaber hilt they’d most like to be offered at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities within Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. These Legacy Lightsaber hilts are modeled after the lightsabers of heroic and legendary Jedi from across the galaxy, so make your choice and let us know below who’s hilt you’d most like to see next! Choose between the hilts of Jocasta Nu, Sifo-Dyas, Quinlan Vos, Depa Billaba, Barriss Offee, or Kanan Jarrus.
