'Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures' Figures Launching From Hasbro

The toy line will support Lucasfilm's new animated outreach attempt to get younger fans for the franchise.

Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures is more than just a kid friendly animated retelling of the events from the original trilogy of movies; as of Dec. 1, it’ll also be a toy line from Hasbro offering new versions of classic figures, available exclusively at Walmart.

The first wave of figures in the line will be Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, R2-D2 and Darth Vader. Each 3.75-inch figure will be accompanied by an accessory of some kind, as well as a Galaxy of Adventures mini-comic and QR code allowing the opportunity to access online adventures centering around that character.

A second wave of figures will follow in Spring 2019, featuring Princess Leia, Han Solo, Yoda and an Imperial Stormtrooper.

The first six Galaxy of Adventures shorts — each one running under 90 seconds — were released today, with new episodes scheduled to debut throughout December and into 2019. According to Lucasfilm, the program is part of a year-long initiative to build to the release of Star Wars: Episode IX in December 2019, and it is intended to introduce younger viewers to the franchise.
