If you haven’t tried Darth Vader’s special “Dark Side Blend” of coffee, it’s time for you to “Reach for a Cup!” like it says on this Star Wars Dark Side Blend by Steve Thomas Gallery-Wrapped Canvas Giclee Art Print. (The “or else” is just implied.) Artist Steve Thomas’ immensely popular (and sold out) Star Wars “vintage ad” series is now available as part of Acme Archive’s Gem canvas collection! This unframed canvas print comes gallery wrapped around a 1 1/2-inch wooden stretcher bar and is ready to hang on your wall (or give as a gift). It’s a hand-numbered limited edition of just 495 pieces that measures 17-inches tall x 12 3/4-inches wide and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Giclee (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is an invented name for the process of making fine-art prints from a digital source using inkjet printing. The word was coined to distinguish commonly known industrial “Iris proofs” from the fine-art prints artists were producing on the same printers. The name has since come to mean any high-quality inkjet print and is often used in galleries and print shops to denote such. In the past few years, the word (as a fine-art term) has come to be associated with prints using fade-resistant “archival” inks and the inkjet printers that use them. A wide variety of substrates are available, including various textures and finishes, such as matte photo paper, watercolor paper, cotton canvas, or artist textured vinyl.

A Star Wars fan since 1978, he has a passion for all things Star Wars and wonders why May the 4th is not a national holiday. He lives in the wastelands of middle Georgia with his wife, two girls, and two dogs.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Exclusive Merchandise

The fine folks over at the Disney Parks Blog, have given us a taste of what’s to come for some of the merchandise that will be exclusive to the park. As you can see from the image above there will be a plush Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper, Chewbacca, porg, Yoda, and Watto toys. No doubt, that is just the tip of the iceberg though.

At Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, guests will visit the planet of Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge that was once a busy crossroads along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes. Here, guests will find themselves in the middle of the action at two attractions that take detail and immersion to the next level: one that lets guests take the controls of Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and an epic Star Wars adventure that puts guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance.

Guests will also be able to explore a street market run by a Toydarian, a character first introduced in “Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.” Among his wares will be handcrafted toys made by local artisans, like those seen above.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to open at both the Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts in 2019.
