Under the terms of the partnership, Kano plans to develop a Star Wars themed experience and product system, which is set to launch during the second half of 2019. Additional details will be forthcoming.
"Our goal at Kano is to take you on a journey, unlocking powers in yourself and others, through the medium of technology – from wands that really work, to computers you make yourself, and more" said Alex Klein, co-founder, and CEO of Kano, "Collaborating with Disney is a blessing. We can combine connected, creative technologies with some of the most memorable stories ever told."Kano is also planning to incorporate additional Disney intellectual properties into its products during the length of the partnership, so we could be seeing additional Disney-themed coding projects.
Kano is known for devices like the Harry Potter Kano Coding Wand, which uses the Harry Potter universe to teach coding techniques. With the Harry Potter kit, kids and adults build their own wand and then use it within the Kano coding app to create magic.
