Disney has announced its Force Friday II promotional event, and Apple Stores are getting in on the action. Apple Stores will be selling select pieces of Star Wars merchandise, and, along with other retailers, will be part of an augmented reality Star Wars event that will see fans on the hunt for virtual characters from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Other retailers participating in the event include Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.
As the original Force Friday was for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Force Friday II is the merchandise rollout for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The rollout will see all sorts of toys and other merchandise go on sale in a big push. It's likely that Apple Stores will stock any connected toys that might be in the lineup, just as it did with the Sphero-created iPhone-controlled BB-8.
