A new popcorn bucket is available in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland Park for May the 4th celebrations. Guests can grab the light-up Droid Parts popcorn bucket from Kat Saka’s Kettle while supplies last.
Droid Parts Popcorn Bucket — $24.69
This Droid Parts popcorn bucket is made to look like it was haphazardly assembled from the parts of different droids. A red leg, a distressed white leg, a black body, and a purple droid “head” are all held together by mock duct tape.
Guests who purchase this popcorn bucket can choose from one of the two new popcorn mixes that debuted earlier this week: the Surabat Valley Mix and the Niamois Mix.
This poor droid has seen better days.
The bottom of each droid leg has a wheel so that this popcorn bucket can actually roll around.
Even the interior of this droid parts popcorn bucket is themed, with a bundle of faux cables connecting the lid to the bucket.
Underneath the droid head (or lid) you can see the on/off switch for the light-up feature of this bucket. You can also access the battery compartment with a screwdriver to replace the batteries.
The droid’s optics light up orange.

May the 4th
May 4 is considered Star Wars Day because “May the 4th” sounds like “May the Force (be with you).” It’s celebrated annually by “Star Wars” fans and now Disney and Lucasfilm. At Disney Parks, a collection of May the 4th merchandise is released each year.
This year’s May the 4th collection was already released on shopDisney, although more items may be available at the parks. A new limited edition Cal Kestis lightsaber hilt and a Dok-Ondar action figure will be available on shopDisney, too.
New Legacy Lightsaber hilts will arrive at Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge throughout the month of May.
Check out the full list of May the 4th food and beverage offerings at Walt Disney World Resort.
Carrie Fisher will receive a posthumous star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame on Star Wars Day this year.
“Star Wars: Visions” volume 2 and “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” will premiere on Disney+ on May the 4th.
