STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS 18 Hour Live Stream Planned for Force Friday
Prepare your wallets, because Force Friday is almost upon us. I already assume you know what Force Friday is but if you don’t, it’s a very special day, September 4th to be exact, where a hell of a lot of new Star Wars toys based on the new film will be released all across the world. Exciting? Very.
Lots of stores will be taking place in this spectacular event, but StarWars.com has just announced that to celebrate, they’ll be doing an 18 hour live stream, featuring streams from all around the world. All countries participating will unbox a brand new toy, one by one. By the sounds of it, it doesn’t sound like they’ll reveal ALL toys, but if you wish to remained surprised, this might not be the live stream you’re looking for. But if you do wish to participate in the Star Wars goodness, all the info you need is below.
“Over the course of 18 hours, some of Maker Studios’ biggest stars will each be unboxing a new toy from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens product line in a different city around the world and sharing the experience live on YouTube,” said Leslie Ferraro, President, Disney Consumer Products. “We’ve seen tremendous excitement for these new products and can’t wait to see the global reaction from the Star Wars fan community.”
The Star Wars YouTube channel will host the live stream, which kicks off with the first unboxing in Sydney, Australia at 7:45 a.m. local time on Thursday, Sept. 3 (5:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Sept. 2), with the grand finale at Lucasfilm in San Francisco at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Thursday, Sept. 3. Each of the 15 locations will reveal a new product inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
