Star Wars and Marvel descend on Disney at Harrods

Disney’s area within the spectacular Harrods toy department has increased by more than a third following some arrivals from Marvel and Star Wars.

A bevvy of top notch Marvel products are complemented by a round spherical screen showing clips from Marvel movies, as well as other heroic content. This fixture is flanked by a Spdier-Man pinball machine and some incredible Captain America and Hulk (pictured) statues.

However, centre of attention is set to be the original Iron Man suit from the first film, sprinkling some Hollywood star dust over Harrods toy department.

In the Star Wars area more photo opportunities will be available as life-sized versions of favourite characters from all of the films are positioned throughout the area.

Also expect to see characters from Star Wars Rebels – a new animated show hitting kids TV screens this summer.

Mike Stagg, VP and General Manager Retail, The Walt Disney Company UK said: “Our mission is to bring Disney magic to families across the UK in new and exciting ways. Last year’s opening of Disney’s Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Harrods, offering the ultimate fairy tale experience for children is a great example. We’re delighted to build on its success with another retail first in the shape of this new, dedicated area for our Marvel and Star Wars characters, which is set to become a unique destination for fans.”
