Do we have any Star Wars fans? My family LOVES these films, and we can’t wait to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi when it comes to theatres December 15. It is actually going to be one of the best birthday gifts for my husband!
Following the global phenomenon of ForceFriday in 2015, Disney and Lucasfilm announced Find the Force, a global augmented reality (AR) event rolling out on #ForceFriday II (September 1) to commemorate the worldwide launch of new products inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Force Friday II kicks off at ALL Disney Store locations across North America on September 1st. Fans can unite with one another from around the world in the battle against the dark side Sept. 1-3 in an augmented reality treasure hunt at Atlanta-area Disney stores.
Participating Disney Stores:
o Disney Store at Perimeter Mall- Atlanta
o Disney Store at North Point Mall –Alpharetta
o Disney Store at Mall of Georgia- Buford
o Disney Store at Town Center at Cobb- Kennesaw
The pop-up Augmented Reality (AR) treasure hunt aims to unite fans around the world in the battle against the dark side in a unique three-day event at over 20,000 retail locations across 30 countries. As fans turn up to take home new The Last Jedi products, they will have the opportunity to activate a unique augmented reality experience featuring Star Wars characters, including fan-favorites and new surprise additions from the film.
So how does it work?
FIRST, download the Star Wars App, which is your one-stop-shop for all things Star Wars (those who already have the app will need to download the latest version).
NEXT, visit any one of 20,000 participating retail locations to find a graphic that contains the Find the Force logo.
SCAN the graphic using the Star Wars App, and you’ll reveal a character, who through augmented reality, will appear in the room with you.
THEN take photos, record videos, and share the experience on social media.
COME back each day to reveal new characters (15 in total across the program’s three-day run).
