Saga Chronicles: Skywalker Sound’s Danielle Dupre and Jon Borland on Their Obi-Wan Kenobi Journey

Some of the greatest Star Wars stories are those from behind the scenes. In Saga Chronicles, Lucasfilm’s Lucas Seastrom tells those tales

In a remote village, Obi-Wan Kenobi and young Princess Leia seek refuge in a hideout used for smuggling Jedi. But Darth Vader and his fearsome Inquisitors are on their trail. Arriving at the settlement, the ruthless Vader begins murdering innocents to coax his former master out of hiding. Sending Leia to escape, an unsettled Kenobi attempts to draw the villain away, confronting the vengeful Sith Lord with lightsaber in hand. The scene is from the last moments of Part III of Lucasfilm’s latest series, Obi-Wan Kenobi, with all episodes now streaming on Disney+.

“The input from [series director] Deborah Chow was to make it terrifying and dark,”

Light & Magic Is Here!

When Dennis Muren first read the script for the original Star Wars in 1976, the technical wizardry required to tell the story on the screen hadn’t yet been created. Simply put, the man who would go on to win nine Academy Awards for his work as a visual effects supervisor saw George Lucas’ vision and thought, “This is impossible.”

It wasn’t. For nearly five decades, Muren and many other legends of filmmaking have pioneered technological advancements at Industrial Light & Magic, the special visual effects, animation and virtual production division of Lucasfilm, leading to the new documentary series Light & Magic, now streaming on Disney+.

Directed by acclaimed writer and director Lawrence Kasdan, the six-part story delves into the personal and professional history of these pioneers of modern filmmaking — whose work inspired the

“We’re Enough”: An Ode to Owen and Beru

Roses are red
Milk is blue
The most underrated parents in Star Wars
are Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru

If you’re celebrating National Aunt and Uncle Day in the galaxy far, far away, there’s one pair that truly deserves all the accolades. That’s right: Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru! The humble moisture farmers never left their home planet, but together they changed the entire galaxy. Not only did they do everything in their power to safeguard their adopted son, but they also raised Luke Skywalker to be brave and compassionate. Luke simply wouldn’t be the hero he is without Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.

Owen Lars and Beru Whitesun met in Anchorhead. The Tatooine natives both came from generations of moisture farmers in their families. Owen was practical, hard-working,

A Star Wars Tattoo Story

If the Jedi say that attachments are forbidden, then perhaps it’s against the Jedi Code to get a tattoo. Thankfully, in this case, I’m no Jedi. So, I sat down with seven-time licensed Lucasfilm tattoo artist, Mike Bianco, to get my very own Star Wars tattoo during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022.

Star Wars has had a huge influence in my life. I grew up watching the prequel trilogy with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace as my favorite movie. They had a pivotal role in my upbringing and I wouldn’t be where I am now if it wasn’t for the part that this galaxy far, far away played in my childhood.

Once I decided that I wanted to get a Star Wars tattoo at Celebration, I pitched the idea

SDCC 2022: New Star Wars: The High Republic Tales and More Reveals from the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel

There’s a conflict brewing on Jedha, a nameless terror lurking in the galaxy, and a new class of Jedi heading to Star Wars: The High Republic later this year. During the Lucasfilm Publishing panel at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon, creative director and moderator Michael Siglain was joined by eight Star Wars authors — Kristin Baver, Cecil Castellucci, Adam Christopher, Claudia Gray, George Mann, Beth Revis, Cavan Scott, and Kiersten White — reuniting to reveal book and comic covers, comic pages, and interior spreads from Phase II of The High Republic and beyond. Here are 10 reveals and first looks from the hour-long discussion. 1. We got our first look at the cover of Star Wars: The High Republic: The Battle of Jedha With a script by

Inside the Lucasfilm Archive: A Brewing Rebellion in the Obi-Wan Kenobi Limited Series

Through the props and costumes of Star Wars, we find a tangible link to connect with the characters from a galaxy far, far away and the stories they inhabit. Inside the Lucasfilm Archive, take a closer look at these artifacts and the stories behind their design.

Nods to previous Star Wars storytelling are scattered throughout the props utilized in the new Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series, with careful study of prequel pieces informing items pulled directly from Kenobi’s time in the Jedi Order and the circular hilts of the Inquisitor lightsabers making the leap from animation.

But among the items that begin to signal a burgeoning rebellion, it’s surprising to find connections to the crime boss Jabba the Hutt and his Tatooine abode.

Ned-B’s hammer, for example, was designed with inspiration from
