There is rarely anything as popular as the story from a galaxy far, far away – Star Wars. It started as single movie four decades ago, and it has grown into the biggest franchise in the world spanning movies, cartoons, video games, comics, and more. With the success and popularity that Star Wars has seen, there’s a wide variety of Star Wars merchandise to be found, and gifted to that friend who just can’t stop talking about this sci-fi world.
Interactive remote-controlled BB-8 droid
When Disney acquired Star Wars, it meant a whole new set of movies was bound to happen. Those movies would feature a plethora of iconic characters that would be a blast to interact with. Poe’s droid from the movies, BB-8, is one of those characters. Because the droid in the movie is real and not computer-made, you can give it your friend as a gift. It’s remote controlled, voice-activated robot that has a huge palette of interactive commands that you can order to your droid.
Disney Infinity for Xbox 360
Star Wars as a universe is gigantic and has an endless potential. This is where Disney Infinity comes in. Allowing you to play in vast, open areas with your favourite Star Wars characters alongside other iconic Disney ones can be a blast. And the potential really is limitless. There’s a huge collection of scannable cards for the game, as well as many figurines. It’s a collection suited for all ages.
Star Wars Year by Year – A Visual History
An illustrated book filled with Star Wars’ inside story, this one is a must-have for any fan. The book goes into detail in what inspired the movies, how everything was made, the people that work on Star Wars – everything. It even has stories about when Star Wars influenced popular culture, and the overall effect it had on the world.
Star Wars has its fair share of novels. Going strong for forty years, the franchise has created many, many memorable books and side-stories. There are the fantastic novelisations of the films, but there are dozens, if not hundreds, of unique Star Wars books that are simply waiting to be read. You can choose the New Jedi Order series, Legacy of the Force, the Darth Bane books, and a whole plethora of others. Note – when Disney acquired Star Wars they created their own canon, so any books and video games made from before the acquisition are considered to be Legends Canon.

Quotes like ‘May the Force be with you’ are turned into stickers and posters, and there are plushies, toys, collector’s editions of the films and shows, posters, and so much more. If your friend has told you their favourite characters – which they most definitely have – it’s easy finding a tiny, yet memorable, gift that they’ll cherish forever.
