Get geared up for back to school with Solo: A Star Wars Story! This fun galactic heist is coming to digital on September 14th and to Blu-ray on September 25th. I've partnered with Lucasfilm to share some cool Star Wars school supplies and what to expect when you purchase Solo: A Star Wars Story for your family.
My son loves (like, big puffy heart LOVES) Star Wars. In fact, his room is decked out from top to bottom in Star Wars decor. From bedding to pajamas to LEGO sets, he's a fan through and through. That's why I knew he was going to be so excited about Solo: A Star Wars Story coming to digital and Bluray.
Star Wars School Supplies
To get him really excited about starting first grade, our friends at Lucasfilm sent him an awesome back to school kit filled with Star Wars school supplies. Doesn't this look so fun?!
My 6-year-old LOVES backpacks, so I knew he'd be thrilled to see this Solo: A Star Wars Story Backpack. It is such great quality and so roomy! I know he'll be using this one for years. It was also filled with a Solo lunch bag and pencil bag, a super cool Chewbacca locker mirror, and Solo: A Star Wars Story buttons.
He's already filled up his pencil case and he's ready to go! I'm so glad they sent us multiple buttons because he's already decided which friends he's planning to share his rad new buttons with. Oh, to be a first grader again!
If you're looking for more Star Wars school supplies, there's also a really cool Solo: A Star Wars Story stationary set and a fun Zak Designs Chewie Is My Copilot Reusable Plastic Water Bottle.
