Force Friday was a huge success for Episode VII, bringing in over $1billion in the U.S. alone. Everything from toys to books to apparel to anything in between hit shelves, resulting in huge sales figures as fans ran out to buy the products. Fans still had to wait 3 months for the movie. Well Lucasfilm has another film being released this December, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It looks like Disney and Lucasfilm will be making Force Friday an annual event.
JediNewsLIVE (via Star Wars Underworld) is reporting that Force Friday 2016 will be held on September 30, 2016. That date has been confirmed by three different licensees, so it would appear that it’s set in stone. Obviously, there’s no word on what specific products will be available this time around, but those who took park in last year’s Force Friday will be able to come up with their own set of assumptions. Lucasfilm saw tremendous success with this exact pattern in 2015, so they’re obviously expecting similar results.
