Just like how we originally announced in January’s episode of Galactic Fashion, Alex and Ani will be releasing a new BB-8 bangle! There’s more. The new additions will also include R2-D2 and TFA (The Force Awakens) Stormtrooper bangles! The news was recently announced by Michelle Harker, Manager at Disney Theme Park Merchandise Marketing & Communication, at the Disney Parks Blog.
Unlike the previously released Star Wars bangles from Alex and Ani, the charms on these bracelets are 3D representations of the characters instead of the classic round charms. The charms come on expandable wire bangles in a Rafaelian Silver finish.
The three new bangles will be released on April 18 at specific locations in the Disney Parks. These should also appear online in the Disney Store and Shop Disney Parks mobile app soon after.
As stated various times in past recordings of Galactic Fashion, I am a huge fan of Alex and Ani. I’m really looking forward to adding these three bangles to my growing collection of Alex and Ani x Star Wars jewelry. I’m also hoping that more bangles will be released in the future and branch out to include other characters, such as Rey and Leia.
