I didn’t pick up on this detail immediately. I read the news post but didn’t “absorb” it entirely which led to my double-take. Perhaps this is a “nothing burger,” but I still found it interesting. Sarah Carroll, Brand Marketing Manager of Star Wars (Hasbro) and Sam Smith, Design Manager (Hasbro) will be joined by members of Lucasfilm at the Hasbro Star Wars panel this year. It will be the first Hasbro presentation (that I can recall) that has Lucasfilm employees present. Could the format of this presentation have changed to help address the new changes in the line, or is the indeed something more here? This post is 100% speculation and nothing more. But let us know your thoughts.
