Lucasfilm has announced that Disney+ series "The Mandalorian" will get a slate of newly announced consumer products on Oct. 26 as part of a series of Mando Mondays announcements.
Mando Mondays will drop new releases each week to align with the premieres of new episodes of "The Mandalorian" starting Oct. 30. Lucasfilm and Disney plan to announce new toys, collectibles, apparel, books, comics and digital content as part of the rollout. Mando Mondays will run for nine weeks until Dec. 21.
"When 'The Mandalorian' debuted last year on Disney+, the show became an instant phenomenon, with fans of all ages expressing excitement for products related to its iconic characters – particularly the Child," says Kareem Daniel, president, Consumer Products, Games and Publishing. "This fall, as the world continues to watch the narrative unfold, we will further bring this unique ‘Star Wars’ story to life through a must-have selection of toys, books, comics, digital content, and more."
Mando Mondays have already kicked off with pre-order opportunities now available. Pre-order products include:
- Hasbro's Black Series Credit Collection;
- Funko Pop! bobbleheads; and
- LEGO Star Wars The Child construction set.
"The Mandalorian" proved a streaming hit when it launched on Disney+ last November. The show's introduction of new characters, such as The Child, known by fans as Baby Yoda, also became a hit in retail channels with products from companies such as Build-A-Bear announced shortly after the series launched.
The countdown starts now. For more details, visit MandoMondays.com and follow the conversation on social channels using the hashtag #MandoMondays.
