If there’s one thing that Star Wars fans are widely known for, it is their unfading love for Star Wars merch. With every new installment, the fans happily buy whatever new merchandise hits the stores. Talk about the annual DC Comic-Con and its success - that’s one of the best examples of how big Star Wars merch is.
Since the 1978 holiday season that brought the movie merchandise, the number of fans anticipating new releases each year has been growing. And each year, new Star Wars merch outshines what has been released before. If you thought that at some point, the fans were going to admit that they had enough, think again.
The release of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker saw a renewed hunger for more Star Wars merch. Those who hadn’t bought any presents for the 2019 festive season immediately saw the opportunity to make up for it in 2020. Others bought cinema tickets that are still being purchased today. Big givers are busy searching for suitable presents to buy online.
However, for the true Star Wars fans, movie tickets are not enough. There’s also the need for merch to celebrate this awesome sci-fi fantasy.
