If you’re the type of fan who likes to decorate your holiday tree with Star Wars, cover your desk with Star Wars, and/or cook while wearing Star Wars, then you should be very excited about what Hallmark has coming next year.In 2019, Hallmark will be releasing beautiful new Keepsakes Storytellers ornaments, itty bittys (including amazingly cute versions of Darth Maul and Padmé Amidala in her regal gown), and much more in a delightful, stylistically diverse, and just-plain-fun range. StarWars.com has a first look below and caught up with Christine Taylor, Hallmark’s licensing creative manager, to talk Chewbacca aprons, bringing the voice of Gold Leader to your tree, and, maybe, one more surprise announce. For those attending San Diego Comic-Con, be sure to stop by Hallmark’s booth (#2913-K) in the Lucasfilm Star Wars Pavilion, where this collection of 2019 product will be on display.

Okay, now look at the list of 14 obscure items below. Find each of the items you need, gather what is needed or go to a location, place the logo you printed out in front of them and take a picture. Once you have all 14 done, email the images to us at YodasnewsAnniversary@gmail.com with the subject “14 Year Hunt” – We WILL be sharing some of the pictures online and on social media, so make sure what is in your photos is okay for the public to see.
