Mainland Headwear Holdings, a Hong Kong-based hat manufacturer, said that it had won the contract to produce branded headgear for the Star Wars III film due to be released in spring 2002. The licence has already resulted in $1.3m of orders the company told Asia Pulse. In a statement, the company said the film's producer had chosen Mainland Headwear to manufacture more than a million pieces of headgear, and added that this is the third time it has produced Star Wars branded goods.
