Get ready to experience a 10-day long Star Wars themed festival in Singapore this September.
Opening on 1 September 2017, the Star Wars: Experience the Force Singapore festival co-organised by ReedPOP and The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia will allow fans to be a part of the global fan event as they celebrate the merchandise release of the upcoming movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” at ION Orchard.
There will be various exciting pop-up experiences and fan-based activities, including the first-ever installation of the Millennium Falcon and the first-ever Padawan Training in Southeast Asia. Aspiring Padawans aged between 4 to 12 are invited to train in the ways of the Force and learn how to master a lightsaber under the guidance of a Jedi Master.
A unique opportunity to meet and interact with the adorable BB-8 droid in virtual reality will take place at the Basement 4 of ION Station. Created by ILMxLAB, this installation is a first for Southeast Asia fans after debuting at the Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 earlier this year.
Apart from that, Toys ‘R’ Us, Simply Toys, and Beast Kingdom will be bringing their 3.5 meter tall AT-ACT Walker set from the Battle of Scarif scene and exclusive “Star Wars” merchandise to the festival as well.
Best of all, the 10-day festival experiences along Orchard Road are FREE!
