R2-D2 and BB-9E can be controlled with an iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch. More details can be found in our earlier coverage of the droids.

Apple's new Star Wars accessories page also has a trio of Star Wars quadcopter drones by Propel, and a kit for creating your own Star Wars droid.

Apple is also hosting free Star Wars–themed sessions at many of its retail stores starting today through Saturday, September 9.

The new Star Wars toys and sessions are in celebration of Force Friday II, which begins today and runs through this weekend. It's all to promote Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which debuts in theaters December 15.

While there is no denying Star Wars from the get-go was all about the merchandise, the purchase by Disney has been nothing but cancer. Force Awakens was trash, the never ending Han-Solo crisis & an Obi-Wan movie? Give me a break, milking the series doesn't even begin to describe it. Not to mention evil BB-8, and that furby looking thing, seems Ewoks are taking the back seat.

I love the fact that the sounds do come from the R2D2 model vs coming from the phone app that the BB8 and BB9E do. That is part of the reason I felt a disconnect with the BB8 droid that we own. Just wasn't the same. Almost hard to control at times too.

Might have to pick up the R2D2 droid at some point.

I was somewhat disappointed with Force Awakens since it was lika passacaglia of the original film, but it was still so much better than episode 1-3. But seeing the trailer for episode 8 I'm pretty sceptical as to what Disney has to offer. But I do like this R2-D2 robot toy!

You can't blame the prequels on Disney. Lucas was trashing Star Wars long before Disney got their mitts on it.
