New Star Wars hospitalwear launched

New Star Wars hospitalwear – ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on May 4th, guest presenter Mike Birbiglia and special guest Ewan McGregor, star of the new Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” introduced the latest “Star Wars” themed Starlight Hospitalwear designs. Starlight Children’s Foundation® will distribute nearly 60,000 hospital gowns and matching pants to children’s hospitals, with a mix of five brand-new and updated gown designs, including the Mandalorian with Grogu, Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader, R2-D2, and Chewbacca, as well as pants featuring more “Star Wars” characters. The robes also have QR codes that provide kids access to unique “Star Wars” digital entertainment while they’re in the hospital. 
“I am happy to be a part of the presentation of this new range of hospitalwear for kids as a member of the ‘Star Wars’ family,” McGregor remarked. “It’s really touching to witness how these renowned figures can bring joy and strength to children facing their own battles in the hospital.” 
Disney and Starlight have partnered since 2001 to bring joy to chronically sick children and their families. Starlight delivers child-friendly hospital gowns to its network of over 800 children’s hospitals and paediatric facilities of care in the United States, in addition to delivering toys, books, games, and more from all of Disney’s businesses. The hospitalwear features favourite characters from “Star Wars,” Marvel, Pixar, “Frozen,” Mickey & Friends, ESPN, and Disney Princesses in entertaining, comfy, and colourful designs. Through its partnership with Starlight, Disney has assisted in the distribution of over 350,000 hospital gowns to children in over 300 hospitals since 2017.

“We’re grateful for our long-standing cooperation with Disney, which has enabled us to offer smiles to very ill children in hospitals,” said Adam Garone, CEO of Starlight Children’s Foundation. “Through the collaboration, we will be able to deliver free Disney-themed Starlight hospital gowns, toys, and other programmes to our hospital partners.” It helps to distract sick children from the stress of medical procedures and conditions when they can magically turn into a ‘Star Wars’ character or a Disney Princess by slipping on a Starlight robe.” 
On May 4, Disney VoluntEARS, Lucasfilm, Starlight, and Dr. Sameer Bakhda paid a visit to George Mark Children’s House in San Leandro, California, to hand out “Star Wars” toys and host activities for the patients and their families.
