Stormtrooper Helmets Reimagined by Celebrities & Artists will be on Display
in Celebration of the Global Fan Holiday, May the 4th.


Lucasfilm, Disney Consumer Products and Neff announced today the upcoming Star Wars Legion exhibition. Artists from across The Walt Disney Company including Lucasfilm, Industrial Light and Magic, Marvel and Pixar—as well as select street artists chosen by Neff and celebrity Star Wars fans –all come together to create individualized interpretations of the iconic stormtrooper helmet in celebration of the global fan holiday, Star Wars Day or “May the 4th be with you.”

"Creativity has been a hallmark of the Star Wars franchise for over 35 years,” said Troy Alders, Lucasfilm Creative Director for Disney Consumer Products. “May the 4th is a perfect time to celebrate this fantastic group of artist’s unique creations and share them with Star Wars fans."

"As a lifelong Star Wars fan, it’s been a dream of mine to collaborate with Lucasfilm," says NEFF Founder and CEO, Shaun Neff. "Teaming up with some of the most prominent street artists from around the world, we are thrilled to work alongside The Walt Disney Company—to re-imagine such an iconic piece of cinematic history as the stormtrooper."
