2021 marks the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm and Disney will be running a celebration throughout the year by releasing commemorative, fan-favourite 50th anniversary Star Wars products.

This celebration will begin in January and will run throughout 2021 with special edition product releases.

“Consumer products have always been an integral part of the Star Wars fan experience, and they remain a constant force in pop-culture today. To commemorate Lucasfilm’s 50 years of storytelling, we look forward to honoring this consumer products legacy and bringing to life brand-new products, games and publishing offerings that celebrate our future with Lucasfilm’s exciting feature films and Disney+ series ahead.”

Said Paul Southern, Lucasfilm Senior Vice President, Licensing and Franchise.


Across the Company, Lucasfilm has won 29 Emmy Awards, 38 Academy Awards, 32 Sci-Tech Awards, 18 Webby Awards, and 12 awards for ILMxLAB’s groundbreaking work in immersive entertainment. Lucasfilm Publishing has had over 180 books on the New York Times Bestseller List and has won a multitude of awards, including the 2020 GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic Book. Lucasfilm Games has delighted fans across multiple platforms and genres with games that push the boundaries of interactive entertainment, winning numerous awards including BAFTA Game Awards, D.I.C.E.

    A good way to celebrate this would be release the VHS version of the classic trilogy on Disney+. I would rather watch that version over the evil Blu Rays. I hate that version!
