September 1 is Force Friday II, which means it's an exciting day for Star Wars fans as the first wave of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise will be available. Fans are invited to "Find the Force" as an augmented reality event.

You can take photos or even short videos interacting with the characters, and even Admiral Ackbar is already discoverable. A new line of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise comes out September 1 and, perhaps more exciting, Disney and Lucasfilm are organizing a global augmented reality treasure hunt to "unite fans around the world in the battle against the dark side" as they shop.
