TSA Bans Disneyland’s Star Wars Souvenir Coke Bottles


You won’t be able to bring home any of those new Star Wars-themed coke bottles on the plane trip back from your visit to Disneyland’s new Star Wars theme park, since the TSA just banned them because “they look like bombs.”

Sadly, they are serious.

The Transportation Security Administration just announced that Star Wars souvenir Coke bottles purchased by vacationers at Disney’s new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park will no longer be allowed to be stowed in either carry-on or checked luggage.

The bottles — which are shaped like the “thermal detonators” seen in Return of the Jedi — retail around $5 each and are modeled after a device used by Princess Leia while disguised as a bounty hunter in the 1983 film.

Strangely, the TSA replied to a Twitter user who queried them about the bottles.

The TSA official wrote back, “Thanks for asking! Replica and inert explosives aren’t allowed in either carry-on or checked bags.”

Coke refers to the bottles as “orb bottles.”

According to an ad for the Star Wars-themed bottles:

The Coca-Cola Company introduces hundreds of new products each year to give people more of the drinks they want in a range of innovative packaging — but none quite like this. Spherical “orb” bottles — which will be exclusive to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge — stay true to the Star Wars aesthetic with a rounded look, resealable caps and brand names printed on scuffed, rusted labels in Aurebesh, the written language featured in the film franchise.

Once again, the TSA makes itself look foolish.
