Disney+, Disney's long-awaited premium streaming service, has finally launched with the debut of the eagerly anticipated original series Star Wars: The Mandalorian.
To celebrate the Lucasfilm series premiere, Disney theme parks will be selling Mandalorian-themed MagicBands, featuring the eponymous bounty hunter and his spaceship, coming in a cool package showing the interplanetary gunslinger ready for business. The MagicBand sells for a retail price of $34.99 and is exclusively available within the theme parks for a limited time only.
MagicBands are wearable wrist devices that allow visitors to interface with theme park and resort access, payment information and photography services through RFID technology. The bands come in a variety of styles and themes.
The Mandalorian takes place years after the events of Return of the Jedi in the galaxy's Outer Rim. As the last remnants of the Galactic Empire cling to the last vestiges of power, an unnamed Mandalorian bounty hunter takes a contract with earth-shattering implications for the Star Wars Universe.
Created by Jon Favreau, Star Wars: The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog and Nick Nolte. The first episode is streaming now on Disney+.
