INDIANAPOLIS -- If you see Star Wars characters around Indianapolis this week, you aren't losing your mind.

As hype builds for the seventh installment of the series, Star Wars Indiana is taking the opportunity to up their presence and share the Force with the next generation.

"For kids, they've never seen the big screen version of us – they've just seen us on TV," said Matt Hofmann, of Star Wars Indiana. "So, for us to all of a sudden be 6' tall action figures is a little exciting for them."

The group helped RTV6 last week with our annual Toy Drive, and will be making appearances at museums and parades around the city for the movie's release.
