The balloons are in stock and available now to retailers within the UK.

Anton Schygiol, director of balloons at Amscan International, said: “Our existing Star Wars balloons are performing well and we’re delighted to be bringing some new designs to the market. The R2D2 AirWalker is a bestseller for us and we are looking forward to seeing reactions to the new Storm Trooper AirWalker.”

Amscan also has plans to launch an additional range of balloons especially for the new movie; Star Wars: the Force Awakens out in cinemas this December.
