For the past two years, Disney Parks has partnered with Lucasfilm to offer unique opportunities for guests visiting Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Through the purchase of specially designed products created for Disney Parks, guests have supported the U.S. Fund for UNICEF on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change. Star Wars: Force for Change, a charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney, harnesses the strength of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world. I’m delighted to announce that the partnership will return this spring with new items inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
This year, guests will find T-shirts for adults and youth, as well as a pin that includes the logo and select characters from the upcoming film Star Wars: The Last Jedi. These items are some of the first retail products for the new film which releases December 15, 2017.
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.
These items will debut in Booth 3463 at Star Wars Celebration, a Star Wars fan event coming to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from April 13-16, 2017.
Following the event, select locations at Disney Parks listed below will carry these items through the summer. These products will not be available on DisneyStore.com or the Shop Disney Parks app.

Hi there. I was at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando but didn’t see these products for sale. I must’ve been walking around blind ? When will they be on general sale to the public?
I just asked at the World of Disney store if they knew what day these would be available. He said when the movie comes out. When I explained that it was supposed to be soonish, he basically told me I was wrong. :'(
Will CM discount be honored at the booth at Star Wars Celebration?
These shirts are nice and a good incentive to support the children.
Quick question so I can plan on shirts for the whole family during our trip, what do they cost and what are the size range please 🙂 ?
Also will there be any exclusive merchandise for Galactic Nights?
@Matthew – There will be special merchandise offered for Galactic Nights. Here are a few other details about the event – https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2017/03/everything-you-need-to-know-about-star-wars-galactic-nights-happening-april-14/
The products look cool! Are the pins open edition at Star Wars Celebration? or will they be LE? Also when can we expect to see these at the parks?
@Matthew – The pin is considered a limited release item. It does not have an edition size. Look for the the products at the Disney Parks locations listed above the week after Star Wars Celebration 2017 has concluded.
Great news! I’ll be at Walt Disney World the week following Star Wars Celebration (April 17-22); will the products be available in the parks by then?
@Devin – The products should be introduced at Disney Parks while you are visiting. I hope you have a fantastic trip!
I’ll be at Disneyland in late June, so I will definitely be looking out for these! I was lucky enough to grab the Rogue One shirt and pin last year, and had a friend pick up the Force Awakens one for me the year before. May have to make this an annual tradition.
