Globe Telecom, the leader in digital services and the number one Filipino digital lifestyle provider, with its inclusive and multiyear partnership with Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, is inviting Star Wars fans to enjoy a galactic experience at the Bonifacio High Street Central amphitheater.
Globe – Star Wars game hub
Launched last night, the play hub is loaded with game booths and merchandise displays and is open to the public for free starting today until tomorrow (December 12-13, 2015). This aims to give Star Wars followers an experience beyond cinema as we all gear up for the much-awaited international release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this coming December 17, 2015.
The Globe-Star Wars Galactic Celebration allows Star War fans and onlookers alike to spend the weekend playing at the game booths, taking photos of famous Star Wars icons and characters, purchasing retail collectibles from participating fashion brands, and enjoying the different treats and offers of Globe brands.
“The Globe-Star Wars Galactic Celebration will be one of the biggest weekends for all Star Wars fanatics in the Philippines. This is our way of bringing the Star Wars experience outside the cinema to get all fans of the movie franchise excited about the release of the latest Star Wars movie. The Galactic Celebration will be a wonderful bonding activity not only for fans, but for the entire family as well with all the games, interactive activities and booths, photo-worthy installations, exciting prizes and treats, and retail collectibles. We would like to invite everyone to spend their weekend with us as we experience a wonderful galactic celebration only from Globe,” shares Globe Senior Advisor for Consumer Business Dan Horan.
The Star Wars Game Hub will also keep everyone on their toes as they enjoy various video games together with the exclusive Star Wars Battlepod arcade game. Kids will surely enjoy the Sphero Challenge where they can navigate the BB8 Droid through a maze for a chance to win prizes. Exclusive Star Wars merchandise is also on display from participating merchants and retail brands such as Havaianas, Folded & Hung, HP, FilBars, Toys ‘R Us and Hobbes and Landes.
In keeping with its commitment to provide learning opportunities for the youth in public school sector, Globe, in partnership with The Mind Museum and Teach for the Philippines, is also implementing corporate social responsibility, efforts during the Galactic Celebration weekend that lets more people enjoy Star Wars activities while making a change in the lives of others.
Alongside Teach for the Philippines, volunteers will be selected to be big brothers and sisters to 100 public school kids as they tour the museum and join the Read-Along activities.
Horan adds, “Through these efforts, Globe is able to engage student beneficiaries and enable them to have an unforgettable Star Wars experience, while increasing their appreciation and understanding of science and technology, ensuring that the entire Star Wars experience is enjoyed by the greater majority.” Special screenings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in different cities across the country will also give more underprivileged kids the chance to watch the movie.
