The Toys That Made Us (2017): S01E01 – Star Wars


Introduction

The Toys That Made Us is an American documentary web television series created by Brian Volk-Weiss.

Outline

In 1977, after being rejected by Mattel and Hasbro, Lucasfilm signed with Kenner Products to have toys produced for their sci-fi film Star Wars. This was a huge gamble, as Kenner was a small toy company at the time and the negotiation process started late due to George Lucas’ secrecy over the ship designs. Since then, toy sales of the Star Wars franchise have totalled to US$14 billion worldwide.
