This summer, McDonald’s ventures into a galaxy far, far away for the first time ever. McDonald’s and Lucasfilm Ltd. are teaming up to create a highly anticipated Happy Meal program, which will be available for an exciting four-week period (August 15-September 11). Imaginations will take flight at McDonald’s as customers of all ages join the intergalactic battle in the new STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS - themed Happy Meal experience.

“We’re very excited to announce our first-time collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., brought to life through our Star Wars: The Clone Wars Happy Meal,” said Rebecca Anderson, Marketing Manager for McDonald’s USA.

“Families and Star Wars fans alike are sure to enjoy this exclusive Star Wars experience at McDonald’s.”




Based on the action-packed, CG-animated theatrical release STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, from Lucasfilm Animation, the Happy Meal features a collection of 18 bobble-head toys designed exclusively for McDonald’s. The collection includes classic STAR WARS characters as well as all-new characters from THE CLONE WARS, all uniquely designed in Lucasfilm Animation’s signature style. McDonald’s guests will receive one of 18 STAR WARS toys with the purchase of a Happy Meal at participating McDonald’s restaurants, while supplies last.



From STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, the characters include Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Asajj Ventress, Ahsoka Tano (Anakin’s new padawan learner), Captain Rex, Padmé Amidala, C-3PO and R2-D2. The Happy Meal collection also features favorite heroes and villains from the entire STAR WARS Saga: Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Wicket the Ewok, Darth Vader, a Stormtrooper, Boba Fett and General Grievous.



Each bobble head is posed on one of the unforgettable vehicles from the STAR WARS Saga, such as the Millennium Falcon and Republic Gunship, and includes unique playable features, such as Darth Vader's breathing, Ahsoka’s light-up lightsaber, and wind-up walkers like Chewbacca on an AT-ST.
