ROGUE ONE: DIRECT HIT!


As the once tranquil shoreline of Scarif is brutally disturbed with the fire and noise of heavy-duty blaster weapons, one of the Empire's fearsome Shuttle Transports takes a direct hit, in this memorable image from ROGUE ONE's first teaser trailer.

At the recent STAR WARS CELEBRATION 2016 event, Director Krennic's personal two-wing shuttle was on display, with the following official description...


"With its starkly geometric hull shape and folding bat-like wings, the approach of Delta-class T-3c shuttle is an imposing sight. Once it lands and deploys its passengers-the cruel Director Krennic and his squad of elite troopers, all sense of dread proves extremely warranted."

EPISODE VII: TO BRING BACK BALANCE!


At Pinewood, Oscar Isaac rehearses his dialogue and reaction shots for the scene where Poe Dameron meets the mysterious and galaxy-travelled explorer Lor San Tekka on Jakku. Max von Sydow, who played Tekka, was either not called to the set or unavailable for filming at this point, so a stand-in takes his place. A fun behind the scenes image from THE FORCE AWAKENS.

CLASSIC ART: CHARACTER CHRONOLOGY!


Back in the days when the first Expanded Universe incarnation meant a lot to the Lucasfilm publishing empire, this lovely cover to the Japanese edition of the STAR WARS ESSENTIAL CHRONOLOGY edition of 2000, superior to anything printed elsewhere, wasn't afraid to bring the written and filmic universes together, as exemplified by the additions of then new favourites like Mara Jade, Grand Admiral Thrawn and Prince Xizor, alongside the iconic film heroes and baddie we'd loved since 1977.

Under siege in their own capital, Clone Troopers are armed and ready but ultimately powerless to stop Cad Bane and his bounty hunters flee with the now released Ziro the Hutt, in a memorable scene from the gritty Season One finale to THE CLONE WARS: Hostage Crisis.
