The Best of the Jedi: Rosario Dawson on Bringing Ahsoka Tano to Live-Action and The Mandalorian

For Rosario Dawson, there’s only one way to explain her casting as Ahsoka Tano.

“I think it definitely was the Force at work,” she tells 

And she might be right. In February 2017, a Star Wars fan tweeted at Dawson, asking if she would ever want to play the fan-favorite Jedi, who, at that point, had only been seen in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. To the surprise of pretty much everyone, Dawson responded emphatically. “Ummmm… yes please?! #AhsokaLives #AhsokaTano #StarWars.” The Internet noticed, causing a stir in the fan community about the possibility of Ahsoka making the jump to live-action; Dawson’s enthusiasm only added to the excitement.

Well, Lucasfilm noticed, too.

“I think someone who always does the press for Star

Jedi Master Sskeer Returns in Marvel’s Star Wars: The High Republic #2 – Exclusive Preview

We’re just a few weeks away from officially entering the era of Star Wars: The High Republic and today has an exclusive first look at pages from the second issue of Marvel’s new comic series by the same name.

“Issue two sees a damaged cruiser drifting in deep space, ravaged by a Nihil attack,” writer Cavan Scott explains. “Sskeer leads the mission which sees the team stalked through the smoke-filled corridors.” And this time, Jedi Master Sskeer and his Padawan Keeve Trennis aren’t alone.

“The issue also introduces Terec and Ceret who are two of the first Jedi that Keeve Trennis meets when she is posted to Starlight Beacon,” adds Scott. “Hailing from the planet Kotab, the pair are bond-twins, siblings who, for all intents and purposes, share the same gestalt

4 Star Wars Books to Read After Finishing Squadrons

You’ve helped Hera Syndulla protect the freedom of the galaxy. On the other side of the war, you’ve grabbed personal glory at the controls of a TIE fighter. Maybe you grew up with your hands around a joystick in a flight simulator or are jumping into the genre for the first time. Whatever your history and your galactic loyalty, Star Wars: Squadrons offers you one of the quintessential fantasies: daring piloting worthy of Luke Skywalker or Han Solo.

Whenever I indulge in a Star Wars fantasy like that, it always makes me want to read more. Novels, comics, and short stories can get inside characters’ heads the way a video game can’t. And every author has their own way of capturing the excitement, terror, or tactics of fantastical space battles.

Better Than Beskar: Inside Columbia’s New Star Wars Collection Inspired by The Mandalorian

If you’re a fan of Star Wars and Columbia Sportswear, the holiday season is extra special. Every December since 2016, Columbia has released limited-edition Star Wars outwear that blends the company’s design expertise with the galaxy far, far away in delightfully creative ways. The collaboration kicked off with a Rogue One­-inspired line, bringing the utilitarian looks of Jyn Erso and others to functional outwear; 2017’s range took inspiration from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’s Echo Base, offering fans a chance to wear modern takes on the style of Han and Leia’s classic Hoth coats; 2018 saw a painstakingly-researched and crafted recreation of the crew parka from The Empire Strikes Back; and last year, the light and dark sides of the Force fused with Columbia’s celebrated Challenger jacket.

How Eastern Philosophy and Film Details Inspired Star Wars Fine Jewelry

The influence of Joseph Campbell’s writings on the hero’s journey and the tenets of Eastern philosophy run deep in the original Star Wars trilogy. These inspirations also fittingly played a role in helping designers craft the new Star Wars Fine Jewelry collection, says Roopam Jain, president of brands at Renaissance Global.

A jade Yoda piece owes its inspiration to ancient talisman pendants, while another invoking the spirit of Princess Leia is woven with braids to mimic her iconic hair. A starburst style pays homage to the symbol used on original poster art as well as the glittering stars in our own Earthly sky. For Roopam, it was important to incorporate these Earthly delights — from carefully-chosen gemstones to fine metals — and cultural influences into pieces that also represent the
