The Disney Parks Blog has posted an interesting article about Star Wars Weekends “Galactic Bounty,” or merchandise. The event is taking place weekends at Hollywood Studios from May 21 – June 13. The Disney Theme Parks Merchandise team creates commemorative goodies and souvenirs that feature new and unique art specifcally designed for the event each year.
For fans of Star Wars and Disney, the event is the only place they’ll be able to buy the uniquely designed merchandise with this year’s specific logo – once the event is over, the specialty logo merchandise basically becomes a collector’s item. Some of the merchandise available includes T-shirts, hats, messenger bags, picture frames, and collectibles, all featuring this year’s awesome art.
For the first time ever, the concept art for the event features the character Boba Fett. According to Robert LaFlamme, this year’s product developer for Star Wars Weekends, it was easy to create this year’s logo art. “With ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ celebrating its 30th Anniversary, it made sense to feature one of the most infamous stars from the film, Boba Fett,” said Robert. “Boba Fett is the ‘most notorious bounty hunter in the galaxy’ – it seemed only right to incorporate Boba Fett into the art to pay homage to such a recognized and notable character from the original Star Wars trilogy.”
