The Star Wars: Force for Change charity was launched by Lucasfilm and Disney in 2014, and since then it has worked with Star Wars fans worldwide to raise millions of dollars for worthy recipients such as UNICEF and the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital. And now Force for Change is partnering with Disney Parks to bring fans some of the very first merchandise for the new film “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.
Debuting first at Star Wars Celebration two weeks from now in Orlando, these “The Last Jedi” t-shirts and pin will become available for sale exclusively at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts in Florida and Southern California this spring, and will not be available online.
The merchandise features new “sketch”-style art of lead characters Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), BB-8, and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac). According to the official announcement from Disney:
Twenty-five percent of the retail sale price from each of these products will be donated to the U.S. Fund for UNICEF in support of UNICEF Kid Power, a program that uses the world’s first WEARABLE-FOR-GOOD™ to give kids the power to get active and save lives by earning points that unlock food packets for malnourished children around the world.
Star Wars Celebration takes place April 13th through the 16th at the Orange County Convention Center. Be sure to visit the event’s official website for more information.
