Facebook and Disney bring Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to Messenger
Facebook and Disney have just announced a new partnership that will bring Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker content to the Messenger app across all platforms. Developed from the ground up by Facebook, the new Star Wars theme, reactions, stickers, and AR effects are now available to all Messenger users on Android and iOS devices.

As you can imagine, the new reactions and stickers are meant to allow Star Wars fans to express themselves using their favorite characters, which are now just a tap away thanks to these new features introduced by Facebook.

Also, Facebook teamed up with Disney to create limited-edition AR effects, which can be used when making Messenger video calls or when you take photos using the Messenger camera. There are a couple of nice-looking AR effects up for grabs if you're into Star Wars, such as a Lightspeed Effect, a Cockpit Effect that simulates Poe Dameron's X-Wing, as well as the Dark vs. Light Effect that basically lets you choose a side.

The brand-new Star Wars chat theme that comes along with all the reactions, stickers and AR effects can be enabled from the Messenger thread by tapping the name of the thread, opening the settings and then selecting “theme” where you should be able to find the Star Wars chat theme.

It seems Disney is really trying hard with this one. As a long time Die hard fan ( since 1977 I was 12 yrs old when I saw the OT) I can honestly say I and my kids have no interest since what happen with TLJ. Really not a Fan anymore of the Disney Star wars But will always be a FAN of the George Lucas Star wars. For the first time in my life I am Not at all excited or even interested in buying, using or seeing anything related to this movie yet alone paying money to see it - but that is my Opinion others may feel differently please don't attack me for just saying I am not a Fan any more. Its just my own Opinion.
