Force Friday II is coming!!! What does that mean?

That means at 12:01 a.m. Friday (aka late Thursday night) select Target stores are having a party to sell you 100 plus new “Star Wars” items, with giveaways.

It’s all in anticipation of the film “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which comes out Dec. 15. “The Last Jedi” is the follow up to the “Force Awakens” and stars Daisy Ridley as Rey.

When “The Force Awakens” came out with a girl as the lead character, parents of girls rejoiced and then booed when Rey action figures couldn’t be found.

My advice to Target:

Dear Target,

Be ready on Friday with as much Rey merchandise as possible. We will buy it for our daughters and for ourselves.

Love,

Parents Everywhere
