Most who love Star Wars have wondered what it’s like to be a Jedi. Wielding a lightsaber, discovering abilities through the Force, traveling the galaxy. Who wouldn’t want to do all that?
And maybe that’s why certain Star Wars video games live on, as the best of the best bring players into that fantasy in ways no other medium can. Two such titles recently celebrated anniversaries — Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and The Force Unleashed, marking 20 and 15 years, respectively — and continue to resonate. Jedi Academy was the fifth entry in a first-person shooter series that started with Dark Forces, evolving to include Force powers and lightsaber action; The Force Unleashed was a major undertaking story-wise and technologically, telling an original tale of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice,
Star Wars Rebels turns 10 next year, and Marvel is celebrating the animated series that brought us the Ghost crew, purrgil, and meilooruns. The comics publisher, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, will mark the landmark anniversary with a collection of original variant covers by artist Caspar Wijngaard for the Star Wars and Star Wars: Darth Vader ongoing series. The covers, revealed here on StarWars.com, will run from January to April 2024 and feature the fan-favorite heroes and villains from the show. Check out all eight variants below:

There was something strikingly familiar about Ahsoka Tano’s Jedi shuttle, the T-6 1974. “I already know this ship,” model maker John Goodson thought as he set to work building the craft that would transport Tano and Professor Huyang on their first live-action adventure in Ahsoka, now on Disney+.
However, the physical creation of Tano’s shuttle was its own journey, bringing the unique mode of transportation first created for the Jedi of the prequels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars back to the screen with a painstakingly crafted and intricately mechanized model.
“It was a slightly different version, but it was the same design,” Goodson tells StarWars.com. “It was the same big semi-circular wing with a cockpit and three engines in the back.” But to build it as a functional,

And he sees a connection there with Star Wars.
“George Lucas’ version of the future felt real. It felt worn out a little bit, and this was very different from [typical] depictions of spacecraft and even aliens or other characters,” he tells StarWars.com. “So I feel that my future relic or future archeology series has some similarities with that.”
Arsham’s vision will officially meet the galaxy far, far away in a new range of limited-edition and highly collectible statues, made
