Gifts From a Galaxy Far, Far, Away
Star Wars will forever be known as the movie series the spawned a merchandising industry that is worth countless billions of dollars. Now that a new Star Wars trilogy is due to be released in the coming years, the interest in Star Wars paraphernalia is growing at a feverish pitch as both fans of the original trilogy plus the younger fans of the prequel trilogy just can’t get enough of them.
