This has been done as a result of the collaboration with Lucasfilm in preparation for the Disney+ launch of the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.

Where Were The Vehicles Unveiled?

This unveiling was a part of the Star Wars Celebration event which took place in Anaheim, California.

The vehicles were presented on the carpet of surprise and well fans loved the surprise the two companies had jointly come up with.

The brand ambassador for VW, Ewan McGregor was also present at the event and at the time of the unveiling of the two VW Star Wars themed vehicles.

When Is The VW ID Buzz Coming To The Market?

It is worth noting that the VW ID Buzz is not likely to hit the roads by the end of 2024.

This is the first time that VW and Lucasfilm have entered a collaboration and from the looks of it, we feel that we might see more of these collaborations in the times to come due to their fantastic results.

Designing & Themes Of The Two Vans

So, one of the major questions is how exactly have these vans been decorated and what themes they carry.

What Makes The Vans Special?

What made them special was that the skins had been put to the exterior of the vehicles with the help of special adhesive films. These skins had been jointly prepared by designers of VW and Lucasfilm.

One of the two vans carried the Light-Side Edition theme of Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, the other one had been specially designed to display the Dark-Side Edition and Darth Vader.

Both vans were special in that they didn’t just have these skins but also feature special underbody lights.

What Separates The Two Vans From Each Other?

The Light-Side Edition carried a mix of blue and white colours. The Dark-Side Edition however has been decorated with a mixture of black and red colours.

The underbody light on this van is red which I must say looks more imposing than that of the Light-Side Edition van.

Even the wheels of the two vans had been specially prepared and looked impressive. They also carried the theme colours so in short not even the minutest details had been left untouched in these two vans.

For those of you that don’t know, VW also recently teased a commercial in which it had given a hint of a collaboration with the Star Wars series. These two vans are the result of this collaboration.

What Was The Main Purpose Of The Collaboration?

The main purpose of the collaboration is to bring the VW ID Buzz and the Star Wars series to the limelight and this is exactly what it has done.

All over the internet, fans of both VW and Star Wars are discussing the collaboration and how cool these vans look.

Another aspect that can’t be ignored is that VW ID Buzz is a modern version of a van with a legacy. The same goes for the Star Wars series.

As both have been around for quite some time now, the two brands might have decided to tap on the nostalgia feeling to attract more audience.
