It’s time for your youngling to become a Padawan learner. Whether they’re headed to the swamps of Dagobah, the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, or a far-off classroom on an Outer Rim planet, preparation starts with the right supplies. We’ve selected some our favorite Star Wars-themed gear to help you finish your back-to-school shopping before the next planetary rotation.
