The beloved sixth chapter in the Skywalker saga is turning 40! Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is celebrating its landmark 40th anniversary with product offerings from shopDisney and favorite licensees such as the LEGO Group, Hasbro, Mattel, Funko, Loungefly, and more! Whether you saw the film when it first came to theaters or are a new addition to the fandom, here are some great gifts and commemorative keepsakes from around the galaxy perfect for showcasing your love for Return of the Jedi.

There is no denying that when Star Wars: Return of the Jedi hit theaters in 1983, it touched the hearts of fans worldwide. Now fans can celebrate the film with a merchandise collection for the entire family with the new Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary collection, featuring new collectible pins, apparel, toys and more for the whole family. Select items are now available on shopDisney and in parks at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.

The breakout stars of Return of the Jedi were the beloved Ewoks, the adorable furry bipeds native to the moon of Endor. Now you can officially join the tribe with the Ewok Bow and Arrow Set and Ewok Horn launching at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort and on shopDisney throughout the month of May. More into cuddling than battling? Look no further than the Ewok Cuddleez plush, also available on shopDisney, or the new Wicket Return of the Jedi 8” plush, one of several variations from Mattel, available now at Walmart.

I have a really good feeling about these new Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary building sets from the LEGO Group.

His high exaltedness, the Great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that the newest additions to your collection will be the all-new Jabba’s Palace mini backpack and matching zip-around wallet from Loungefly, decorated with iconic cinematic scenes from Return of the Jedi.

But your fit is not complete without accessories, and Enso Rings has it all with their new Return of the Jedi wide ring collection, featuring two new styles showcasing the Forest Moon of Endor and Jabba’s Palace along with the newest addition to their Star Wars Galactic Core Collection, the Wicket Dualtone ring.

“I am a Jedi like my father before me.” Follow in the footsteps of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, with the new Luke Skywalker Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Legacy Lightsaber Set, available now on shopDisney. Combine with some desert gradient sunglasses or a limited-edition collectible watch from Fossil and you’ve got yourself the perfect look for a Return of the Jedi watch party.

The Emperor has been expecting you. Embrace the power of the Empire with the new Return of the Jedi Empire Stud set from Girls Crew. Complete your descent to the dark side with the new Halo Death Star Waffle Maker or the Darth Vader Helmet crossbody bag with the matching 3D keychain from Loungefly.
