Star Wars: The Ultimate Rise of Skywalker Gift Guide

Happy Triple Force Friday! Star Wars fans have been looking forward to this day for a few weeks now, as Lucasfilm and Disney announced new merchandise that will tie into the upcoming releases of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the Star Wars: Fallen Order video game, and The Mandalorian streaming series on Disney+.

Today we are going to focus on some of the great merch coming from the highly-anticipated finale to the Skywalker Saga, Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. While we want most of this stuff for ourselves, the shirts, books, and collectible figures included on this list would all make fantastic gifts for any Star Wars fan.



Sometimes gift-givers would benefit from the polite form of K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Silly) when it comes to choosing gifts for the fans in their lives. The thought is of course what counts, but the fear always exists when buying for someone else's fandom whether or not they like this character or that character and it can get stressful for shoppers.

So thankfully simpler options exist to easily celebrate the release of the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker, like this movie logo T-shirt. Simple, easy to wear with almost anything, and sure to be a welcome addition to any Star Wars fans' wardrobe.



One of the breakout stars of The Force Awakens was Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron, who went from a cameo role to one of the leaders of the Resistance. Dameron dealt with some issues in The Last Jedi but he is back for The Rise of Skywalker with a new look that can't help but remind us of Han Solo's charming smuggler.

Who knew all Poe needed to do was grow a bit of stubble and add a satchel to complete his Indiana Jones space outfit but there it is. Poe's unique look in The Rise of Skywalker is sure to leave an impact on some fans, as this Funko has on our hearts.



Dive deep into the details of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker with this visual guide to the world created in the latest film. This Visual Dictionary will explore the unique items and weapons of the Star Wars universe while also delving into the backstories and history of some of the new characters, like the Knights of ren as pictured on the cover.

As if this encyclopedic trove of knowledge wasn't enough, it also features exclusive cross-sections of some of the vehicles that will be seen in the film, along with a recap of the previous movies and character profiles for the characters who will star in the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga.



One of the new characters who will be appearing in The Rise of Skywalker is the mysterious Zorii Bliss, who will be played by Keri Russell. We know next to nothing about Bliss besides she looks insanely cool and that she is an old friend of Poe's, but we're still excited to see her on the big screen.

Zorii Bliss' Funko Pop figure does nothing to curtail our excitement about the character as it brings the character to life in the cute yet detailed style of the Funko Pop collection. unless Bliss is the next Jar Jar Binks, this Funko is a great addition to any fan's collection.



The new ongoing mythology of the Star Wars universe may have started with The Force Awakens, but it didn't end there. Novelized adventures starring our favorite characters from the Star Wars universe have been enjoyed by fans since the very first Star Wars film hit theaters, and that tradition continues with the new Star Wars legacy.

Rebecca Roanhorse's Resistance Reborn touts itself as an essential prequel to The Rise of Skywalker and explores the state of the Resistance following the events of The Last Jedi. The novel features characters like Finn, Poe, Rey, Chewbacca, and Leia as they struggle to strengthen the Resistance against the First Order.



The Young Adult genre has seen quite a few interesting additions to the Star Wars universe as well, with the new Force Collector telling a tale set before the events of The Force Awakens that will affect the Journey to the Rise of Skywalker.

The book is written by Emmy Award-winning author Kevin Shinick, who has written other young adult Star Wars novels as well as many comic issues for Marvel Comics titles like HobgoblinAvenging Spider-Man, and Superior Carnage.



The character of Jannah will be played by Naomi Ackie and was first teased at the D23 event during a teaser reel for the new film. The character carries an energy bow and wears a costume similar to classic Star Wars hero Lando Calrissian, which has sparked a number of rumors about the character.

However Jannah ends up working into the story, we're already loving the character design for the badass new addition to the film. This Funko Pop figure does a good job of styling the character in the iconic Funko look while still keeping the edge that makes us so excited to see Jannah in action on the big screen.



New York Times Bestselling author Justine Ireland has written the Young Adult novel Spark of the Resistance that is another book under the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker banner. The book features fantastic art from comic artist Phil Noto, who has worked on most of the Marvel Comic Star Wars series.

Spark of the Resistance follows Rey, Poe Dameron, and Rose Tico as they investigate a distress plea from an isolated planet, where they discover not only the First Order but a dangerous weapon that could change everything for the Resistance!



Billy Dee Williams starred in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as Lando Calrissian, former smuggler/con man turned legitimate businessman and eventual General of the Rebellion. While Donald Glover took over the role for a younger appearance in Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans were excited to hear that Willaims would be reprising his role for the new film.

One of our best looks at Lando in The Rise of Skywalker was revealed by Funko Pop with their Lando figure, which features the character in his General's uniform with his iconic cape, complete with a grayed mustache and temples to showcase the wiser but still classy look of the character.



The Skywalker Saga may be coming to an end with the latest chapter The Rise of Skywalker, but fans can still enjoy every detail of the film with this official behind-the-scenes book that features the incredibly beautiful art produced during the production of the film.

The Art of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker includes an exclusive look at concept art from the film that will give readers an inside look at the production process and work that goes on before, during, and after shooting to bring these ideas, characters, locations, and vehicles to life.
