The U.S. Postal Service will celebrate the droids of Star Wars this year!
R2-D2 once delivered the Death Star plans to the Rebellion; soon, the plucky astromech -- and nine other Star Wars droids -- will help your mail reach its destination, too.
The U.S. Postal Service announced today a new series of Star Wars stamps, all devoted to our favorite galactic droids. Designed by Greg Breeding with William Gicker serving as art director, the collection will be available on a pane of 20 stamps and feature droids from both film and animation, including IG-11, R2-D2, K-2SO, D-O, L3-37, BB-8, C-3PO, a Gonk droid, 2-1B surgical droid, and Chopper. Look for these droid-tastic stamps to arrive in spring 2021 and check them out below!
These droids are a nod to Lucasfilm's, as well as its parent company, Disney's, commitment to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning and the continued collaboration between Star Wars: Force for Change and global pre-K-12 nonprofit organization FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology).
Star Wars: Force for Change and FIRST have joined forces to expand access to STEM learning to more young people around the world, and to help them envision a brighter, more inclusive future.
