Cute Funko Pop! Tees For Star Wars: The Last Jedi Bring Levity To That Galaxy Far, Far Away


It’s fair to say that Funko has developed a knack for uncovering the cute side of modern-day cinema – even when that involves some nightmarish creature from another dimension like, say, Pennywise the Clown.

For its latest product launch, though, the creative minds at Funko have turned their attention to a little-known indie called Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Off the back of Force Friday II, Disney’s annual merchandise event that brought forth a metric ton of content inspired by Rian Johnson’s sci-fi sequel, Funko has now lifted the velvet curtain on four wonderfully stylish Pop! Tees. And they’re adorable.

Available this fall, each Star Wars-themed T-shirt would look good in any wardrobe, with two placing the spotlight on Adam Driver’s villainous Kylo Ren. Kitted out in his jet-black First Order attire, Ren can be seen with and without his signature, Vader-like mask, and if you’ve been keeping pace with The Last Jedi‘s lifecycle, you’ll be well aware of those allegations claiming Ben Solo is about to ditch his helmet entirely.

Until we have some firm answers for you, though, you can take a closer peek at Funko’s latest line via the gallery below, which also features Chewbacca holding a Porg, one of those cutesy, puffin-like creatures that are indigenous to the far-flung planet of Ahch-To.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi makes a beeline for theaters on December 15th. It’s one of four tentpole projects from that galaxy far, far away simmering in the works, alongside Ron Howard’s untitled Han Solo movie, an Obi-Wan anthology pic and Episode IX.

The latter has been subjected to some fairly drastic changes of late, after J.J. Abrams (and screenwriter Chris Terrio!) was drafted in to fill the director’s chair left vacant by Colin Trevorrow. A new, December 2019 release date has also been confirmed, which tees up a potentially huge box office clash with the so-far unnamed Wonder Woman sequel. And yes, Patty Jenkins will take point at the helm for Diana’s second solo movie following that record-setting deal.
