Sure, it’s the holiday season at Disney Parks, but for Star Wars fans, a super unique holiday has arrived!
We’re talking about Life Day, which is a traditional Wookiee holiday honoring family, joy, and harmony. It’s celebrated on November 17th (which coincides with the anniversary of The Star Wars Holiday Special’s first airing in 1978). And Life Day is currently being celebrated at Disneyland — but now you don’t have to go to Disneyland to get Life Day gear!
You can now stock up on Life Day merchandise on shopDisney! Since it IS a Wookiee holiday, you can grab a new plush of the most famous Wookiee of all, Chewbacca. The Life Day Chewbacca Plush has Chewy dressed up in a traditional red robe while holding a silver orb.
This plush is available for pre-order for $22.99.
There’s also a Starbucks Life Day Tumbler, which also features Chewbacca in his red robe with a silver orb. The tumbler also comes with a straw.
You can buy it now for $24.99.
The Life Day Orb is an important part of the celebration, so be sure you have one handy — this one lights up with the flick of a switch on the bottom. It also has “Life Day” written on it in English and Aurebesh.
Grab the Life Day Orb for $17.
So head on over to shopDisney now to stock up on Life Day essentials, and as always, May the Force Be With You. We’ll continue to keep an eye out for new Star Wars merchandise, so be sure to keep checking back with us often!
