Lucasfilm is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021! As part of that celebration, the United States Postal Service is releasing Star Wars Forever Stamps! These stamps will officially launch on May 4th, or like us, Star Wars fans call it, May the FOURTH!
With 10 dazzling new character-inspired stamps, the Postal Service salutes beloved droids from the “Star Wars” galaxy and the imagination that brings these technological marvels to the screen.
The stamps will represent four decades of innovation and storytelling. Droids featured in this pane of 20 stamps include IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a GNK (or Gonk) power droid, 2-1B surgical droid and C1-10P, or as Star Wars Rebels fans know him, “Chopper.” I’m personally quite excited for the Chopper one.
Fans can watch the stamps introduction during a virtual ceremony on May 4th too! You can watch it on USPS’ Facebook and Twitter pages that day!
Star Wars Forever Stamps will be available to preorder beginning April 5 either online or by calling 800-STAMP24 (800-782-6724).
Will you be adding these epic new stamps to your collection? I feel like I will need some to keep and collect, but also some to use for sending awesome galactic letters to friends!
May the Force be with you!
