Revenge of the Sith Anniversary Fast Food Premiums

After the fast food market was inundated with Phantom Menace premiums at Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and KFC, Lucasfilm slowed down the merchandising machine. In fact they slowed it down so much that they skipped over promoting Attack of the Clones with premiums. However they came back in full force with Revenge of the Sith.

Now, Burger King picked up the Lightsaber and ran picking up where they left off with Return of the Jedi in 1983. Here are the premiums that tied in with Revenge of the Sith’s May 19, 2005 US theatrical release.

After the release of Revenge of the Sith in theaters, The Dove Foundation, an entertainment watchdog group who encourages and promotes wholesome family entertainment sent an overnight letter to Burger King where they urged the promotion be stopped. They claimed to have conducted a national phone survey of 889 adults and said 83% felt the promotion was not appropriate for kids.

Charges were refuted by Burger King speakers that clearly stated the promotion was not specific to the REVENGE movie but to the whole series of films, with just four of the 31 Kids Meal toys specific to Ep III. The toys celebrated not just one film but the entire Star Wars’ saga and the reception by their customers had been overwhelmingly positive.
