"Working with the Disney artists on Star Wars Weekends merchandise is so exciting," exclaimed [Art and Collectibles Product Developer, Deanne Hill]. "There is so much passion around the [Star Wars] films, and the artists love the characters and stories. You can see their passion as they infuse some of Disney's most popular characters into their favorite Star Wars scenes for these original works of art."Hill goes on to discuss the set of new commemorative figurines that will also be available:
"We're over the moon of Endor about our new collection of medium sized figurines featuring Disney characters dressed as Star Wars characters," continued Deanne. "They are a nice complement to the big figurines we've developed in previous years."
What's even better -- these figures are available for pre-order now!
