Apple to Celebrate Force Friday II With Free Star Wars-Themed Sessions and Workshops

In celebration of Force Friday II, join us for Star Wars–themed sessions at Apple stores across the galaxy. Learn how to code with BB-8, explore how to create your own Star Wars movie trailer, and more.

The special sessions will be held at Apple retail stores in United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, UK, France, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Netherlands, Spain, Hong Kong, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates.

Participating stores will offer a one-hour session to teach participants How To: Build Your Own Star Wars Trailer using an iPad and iMovie:

Explore how to create a Star Wars trailer with authentic footage from the films. You’ll discover signature Star Wars trailer-making techniques in an exclusive video from The Last Jedi director, Rian Johnson. Then you’ll create your own trailer complete with titles, transitions, sound effects, and official Star Wars music using iPad and iMovie.

Additionally, children ages six to 12 can learn how to program a BB-8 Droid by attending the Kids Hour: Coding the Droids from Star Wars workshop.

Join us for an exciting Kids Hour starring the galaxy’s favorite droids. Using the same code developers use every day, kids will bring Star Wars droids to life by programming simple movements, loops, and more. Then they’ll design a maze and navigate their droids through the obstacles. Kids can bring their own iPad and Sphero robot, or we’ll provide them. Recommended for ages 6 to 12.

If you’re near Apple’s flagship Union Square retail store on September 1, you can attend a session where Lucasfilm’s VFX and animation studio Industrial Light & Magic will demonstrate how they use animation and 3D modeling to bring the Star Wars galaxy to life.

Join ILM’s Hal Hickel, Landis Fields, and Colie Wertz and explore how they use animation and 3D modeling to bring the Star Wars galaxy to life. They’ll share their creative process, and give you a behind-the-scenes look at their journey from stop motion to CG. Then you’ll create your own Star Wars droids using the same techniques used at ILM—all with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil.

Force Friday II begins on Friday, September 1, and runs through the weekend. As could be expected, the weekend is a promotional campaign for the film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, debuting in theaters December 15.
