Yesterday (less than 24 hours ago), UPS delivered a large "Mystery Box" direct from The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. Aside from a "Fragile - Handle With Care" sticker on the side, there were no clues as to what exactly it might hold, so Adalyn and Finley - THE ROCK DAUGHTERS - and I were about to find out...
What an incredible treat for a Thursday afternoon - a cool sampling of the great STAR WARS products that are available now from the Disney Store, Hasbro, ThinkGeek, New Era and more.
Watching that video above, the appeal of STAR WARS is so evident in the reaction of my girls... from the excitement on Addie's face, to the mischievous look that Finn has for a split-second after igniting her lightsaber and glancing over at her big sister. Why has STAR WARS been bringing families together for nearly 40 years? Because it's perfect even when it's not perfect (elements of the prequels), and like The Force itself, it now binds us and penetrates us, having infiltrated all facets of daily life for many.
Keep your browsers pointed to THE ROCK FATHER in the days ahead, as I'll be giving you a chance to win a few of the items we received (sharing!), and a few will receive dedicated posts (those Hasbro Digital Release Commemorative Edition Figures!) of their own. Also, be sure to stay on target with my Instagram where I share new STAR WARS goodies on a near-daily basis.
STAR WARS: The Digital Movie Collection is available now on virtually every digital platform including Disney Movies Anywhere, Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, Vudu, Xbox and more.
