Toys R Us To Host Midnight Launch For Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Force Friday


Though Star Wars: The Force Awakens won't hit theaters until December, fans will start feeling the Force a whole lot sooner.

Friday, September 4th, marks Force Friday: The official date The Force Awakens toys hit shelves. And to kick the nationwide celebration off, Toys R Us is hosting a midnight launch party at its flagship store in Times Square, New York.

Beginning Thursday, September 4, fans can line outside Toys R Us for the official midnight launch (consider it a warmup for December 17). But don't worry, Toys R Us will have plenty to pass the hours by, with special product demos, giveaways, costumed characters (naked cowboy not included), and more.
