When it comes to new territories and sub-agents, Merchantwise is on board in Australia, while Joon International is handling South Korea. Plush, arts and crafts and apparel licensees will be launching product in 2022.

Finally, the Original Stormtrooper programme in entering the metaverse with a complete range of exclusive NFTs due to launch soon on multiple platforms.

“Because of our great new graphics and the consistent emphasis on fun and humour, existing licensees have seen strong growth in sales,” commented Adam Bass, director of Golden Goose. “It’s great to be able to say that the year ahead is looking very promising.”

Andrew Ainsworth, director at Shepperton Designs Studios, added: “Now in its sixth year, the Original Stormtrooper is going from strength to strength – with lockdown seemingly making this licensing programme even more desirable than it was before.”
