  • The First Order Adds A Dreadnought And Super Sized AT-ATs To Its Arsenal For Star Wars The Last Jedi

And though it was by no means the first product to harness AR, there's no denying that Pokémon Go brought augmented reality to the mainstream a year ago, so we're excited to see it incorporated in a Star Wars-themed treasure hunt.

It's a departure from the Force Friday blitz in 2015, which featured an 18-hour live-streamed unboxing of the products in promotion of "The Force Awakens".

"Force Friday II is a major milestone in the countdown to Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

The retailers include Wal-Mart Stores, Target, Best Buy and Apple stores.

While some characters will be fan favorites, some are brand new characters who won't be seen until The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15.

More than 20,000 retail locations worldwide will become home to augmented reality Star Wars characters. They've already been spotted in some of the Last Jedi footage we've seen so far - they're what Finn and his team are flying toward on the planet Crait.

Fans will find special "Find the Force" logos scattered around.

One of the ways Disney is going to promote the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi is by using an Augmented Reality (AR) system on their mobile devices, similar to how Pokemon Go is played.

Check out the latest episode of The Star Wars Show below for all the details.

Fans can download the latest version of the Star Wars App (v. 2.3 or higher) beginning August 24 for an early look at the new Porg characters in AR before the AR treasure hunt goes live at retail on September 1. If you tweet photos or videos of your characters using the hashtags using #FindtheForce and #Sweepstakes during the weekend, you'll be entered to win in a chance to attend the premiere of The Last Jedi.
