Star Wars Droids Will Help The USPS Deliver Mail This Year

Post in 2021 will be traveling through hyperspace.

If you’re a Star Wars fan and you’re planning on sending anything to a galaxy far far away anytime soon you’ll be over the moon to hear that the United States Postal Service has teamed up with Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise.

In an official Star War press release earlier today, Lucasfilm announced that a series of Star Wars stamps will be made available across the country later this year.

The stamps will feature the Star Wars Universe’s most famous droids from both the movies and the animated series. According to the release, American citizens will be able to get their hands on them as soon as this coming spring.

The new stamps will feature timeless classics like R2-D2 and C-3PO, as well as some more recent favorites like K-2S0 and the adorable BB-8. For you more knowledgeable Star Wars fanatics and recent Mandalorian enthusiasts, the release also showed images of IG-11, D-O, L3-37, a Gonk droid, 2-1B surgical droid, and Chopper. For the rest of you, we apologize for that random order of letters and numbers.

The new collection is provided via an ongoing collaboration between the Star Wars: Force for Change Campaign and a global nonprofit organization FIRST(For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), who seek to prepare young people for the future by introducing them to engineering, coding, and robotics.

The new stamps have been designed by the USPS Designer Greg Breeding and Creative Director William Gicker. The collection will be available on a pane of 20 stamps this spring. More information and images of each stamp can be found on the Star Wars website.
