Star Wars and Disney are celebrating women everywhere by showcasing women from a galaxy far, far away. 

Although it started fairly male-centric, the Star Wars franchise has had a bevy of strong women that have inspired generations. The likes of Leia Organa and Rey Skywalker have shown that women are more than capable of filling roles traditionally held by men.

To honor these women and more, Disney has released the Star Wars: Women Of The Galaxy collection on shopDisney.com. It features clothing, accessories, and collectibles featuring Princess Leia, Jedi Master Rey, Padme Amidala, and Ahsoka Tano, as well as lesser-known characters like fan-favorites Rose Tico, her older sister Paige Tico, and even Hera Syndulla from Star Wars Rebels.

While almost all products released by Disney are excellent, these items particularly stand out because of the fantastic art showcasing each of the women. On top of this, each item has the phrase “The Force Is With Us,” celebrating each woman’s leadership and rebellious spirit.

Some highlights are a jersey with each previously mentioned character in action as well as clothes for younger Star Wars fans including a jersey with all of the characters standing together and a shirt featuring Ahsoka Tano. There is also a pair of Minnie Ears inspired by Leia Organa that is particularly cute.

If accessories and collectibles are more your thing, then there are some fantastic bags, including one that looks like it is decorated in patches you receive for traveling around the galaxy as well as a mug, pins, earrings, and even a MagicBand+.

But if you’re a big fan with some extra money to spare, you can purchase the lightsabers belonging to Rey and Ahsoka Tano, as well as one inspired by General Leia. While they’re not technically part of the collection, they are still great pieces of memorabilia!

It’s great that Disney is celebrating all of these inspirational characters with the Star Wars: Women Of The Galaxy collection. Here’s hoping more items like this are released in the future.

What other women in the Star Wars universe deserve this kind of celebration? Let us know in the comments!
