It’s every Star Wars fan’s favorite day of the year: May the 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day.
And because the Star Wars fandom is one of the biggest out there, with fans clamoring for any way to show off their love of the galaxy far, far away, May the 4th is also a day f ull of announcements, reveals, and releases of new toys and merchandise.
Nearly every product type and industry you can think of is getting in on the Star Wars action – from LEGO, Build-A-Bear, and books to luxury bedding, candles, and Star Wars-themed dog toys and treats.
Every year, the amount of new Star Wars merchandise gets even more overwhelming, so here’s a guide to some of the biggest products and deals to find on May the 4th.
For Star Wars Day, LEGO will release a new member of the Ultimate Collector Series: Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder.

And for the big-budget collector, shopDisney will have the Ahsoka Tano Legacy Lightsaber Hilts in a collectible box starting at 7 a.m. PT on May 4.
The popular fandom-inspired clothing and accessories brand Her Universe already released its new collections of Star Wars pieces. Some of the standout pieces include a hooded cape and dress inspired by Ahsoka Tano, a Rebels cardigan, and a Jedi Knights Athletic jersey.

It’s honestly surprising that Vera Bradley hasn’t had a Star Wars line of bags and accessories. But just in time for May the 4th, the iconic brand teams up with Lucasfilm for a colorful collection combining Vera Bradley’s signature pattern style with symbols and characters from the galaxy far, far away.
The trio of patterns is inspired by the most famous people and places of Star Wars – from Darth Vader and the Death Star to Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Princess Leia. If you look closely at these eye-catching patterns, you’ll even find Boba Fett, stormtroopers, and X-Wing starfighters.
The new Star Wars | Vera Bradley collection releases on May 4.
Homesick, the popular line of candles themed after cities and states people are “homesick” for, launches its first Star Wars line on May 4th. The collection includes a trio of candles themed after Star Wars planets Endor and Tatooine and the Death Star.
The Tatooine candle is inspired by the warm, desert planet’s binary sunset, and the Endor candle imagines the smells of the lush, Ewok-filled forested moon. And the Death Star candle is what the Dark Side of the Force smells like with hints of leather and black myrrh.
The collection also includes a cute Grogu car air freshener, which features gardenia, lavender, and rosemary scents.
This month’s BarkBox theme is for all the Star Wars-loving pooches out there. There are two options for the treat and toy-filled box: the Dark Side and the Light Side.

There are also plenty of other Star Wars dog toys in BarkBox’s collection, including a Darth Vader plush with a removable helmet, a fuzzy Chewbacca, a squeaky Jabba the Hutt, and an adorable plush AT-AT.
There are also Dagobah Dog Bites and Mos Eisley Munchies, among other Star Wars-themed treats.
BarkBox subscriptions start at $23 a month, and Super Chewer boxes start at $29 a month.

The collection also includes Ancient Jedi Text towels inspired by Star Wars language Aurebesh and a chunky knit throw that’s woven in a way inspired by Princess Leia’s braids.
The collection is available to purchase now, but Sobel Westex will have a 25% off sale using code MAY4SW25 running May 4-31.
