‘Star Wars’ Weekends to Include New Merchandise and “Rebel Rendezvous” Ticketed Event
The 2014 merchandise poster was inspired in part by the new Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels and the battle scene depicted on the poster takes place between Star Wars Episode III and IV.
The poster will be featured on the Disney pins for Star Wars Weekends.
