Star Wars Been There – Tatooine

Star Wars Been There – Tatooine is a mug for probably one of the most well-known locations from the Star Wars franchise. Home planet to both Luke and Anakin Skywalker, it is remembered for its desert landscapes and beautiful sunsets of its two suns. I believe it is the only planet featured in all six episodes of the saga (although only mentioned in The Empire Strikes Back). It is also the very first planet to be seen in the film franchise (Episode IV – A New Hope) and that’s what most of the mug is dedicated to.… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Endor

Star Wars Been There – Endor is a mug for a small forested moon that orbited the Tana (Endor), a gas giant from the Endor system. Other names of the moon included the Forest Moon of Endor or the Sanctuary Moon.
The front of the mug shows Ewoks, native inhabitants of the moon. They were primitive but curious and friendly furred bipeds that used spears, slings, and knives as weapons. On the other hand, they appeared to be quick learners of advanced technologies and concepts brought by the Empire.… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Batuu

Here’s Star Wars Been There – Batuu, the release that I’ve mentioned in my previous post. It makes it the fourth mug from this mini collection.
In the Star Wars universe, Batuu is a remote terrestrial planet on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories. Batuu was once covered by massive trees, that later transformed into stone towers after a cataclysm. These formations, referred to by local Batuuans as “spires”, became landmarks for settlers. Black Spire Outpost is the largest settlement on the planet, which was a busy stop for travelers before the invention of hyperspace travel.… Read more

Batuu, Tatooine and Endor mugs have been released

Not just two but three Starbucks Star Wars mugs have been revealed this morning by Disney. Batuu, Tatooine, and Endor are now available for purchase at Disney Shop, but the demand is huge. You have to act fast if you want to get them. I am expecting the new mugs to be gone very soon and who knows when the new batch is going to come out! It is limited to two mugs of the same kind per customer, but I am sure that won’t stop people from buying more and reselling for a profit later.… Read more

New Star Wars-themed mugs from Starbucks

It seems it became a good tradition for Starbucks to release new Star Wars-themed mugs on May 4th. The rumor floating around has it that the new locations from the famous universe are about to be added to the collection. As a reminder, a year ago I reviewed the first three mugs from this series: Hoth, Bespin, and Dagobah and did mention that I expected other cities and planets to follow. I am particularly satisfied to see one of the new releases to be the mug from my prediction list, which is Tatooine!… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Dagobah

Star Wars Been There – Dagobah mug completes the trio released today.
Dagobah made its first appearance in “Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back”. We see it twice: before and after events occurring on the Bespin. In the Star Wars universe, Dagobah is a planet of swamps and forests. One of the purest places in the galaxy within the Force it served as a refuge for Jedi Grand Master Yoda, that is why we see a lot of him on the mug.… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Bespin

Star Wars Been There – Bespin mug has also been released today and is available for the purchase in the Disney Shop online.
In the Star Wars Universe, Bespin is a gas giant with a thin layer of breathable atmosphere a.k.a. the “Life Zone”. The planet is the source of Tiabana gas which is used in hyperdrives and starship weaponry. As the support for the mining industry, several mining complexes float above the planet within “Life Zone”. Cloud City is one of them, you can see it on the front and the back of the mug.… Read more

As it was revealed by Disney Shop, new Starbucks Star Wars themed mugs are coming out on May 4h, 2020. Sure thing Disney could not resist choosing this unofficial holiday of the Star Wars franchise to release new merchandise. This pun on a famous line from the saga, “May the Force be with you” got far beyond the fan-based universe.… Read more
