A PAIR OF NEW HANDBAGS ARE DESIGNED SO YOU CAN BRING THE CHARMING CHILD ALONG FOR YOUR EVERYDAY ADVENTURES.

IG-11’s surprise reinvention as gentle caregiver had us all wishing we could borrow his bag — complete with the Child — and hit the road on a speeder bike looking for adventure. Designer Danielle DiFerdinando of Danielle Nicole handbags is bringing that sentiment into our galaxy with a capsule collection of new handbags featuring the breakout star of The Mandalorian.

DiFerdinando’s designs merge the fantasy of Star Wars storytelling with the personality of the people she expects to take her bags on their own journeys when the line launches later this week. “I first discovered Star Wars at Star Tours at Disney World in Orlando when I was little girl with my family,” DiFerdinando notes. “I remember going on the ride with my three sisters and our parents and it felt like I was in another galaxy. It was a fantasy escape.

Star Wars has finally revealed the truth about the Unknown Regions — their origins, their ancient history, and some of their key inhabitants. The Unknown Regions are a vast, unexplored portion of the galaxy introduced in the old Expanded Universe. When Disney rebooted the canon, the creative team retained the galactic map, meaning the Unknown Regions remained part of the relaunched Star Wars franchise.

According to Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, the Unknown Regions are an “unexplored infinity… closed off by a labyrinth of solar storms, rogue magnetospheres, black holes, gravity wells, and things far stranger.” Palpatine became obsessed with the Unknown Regions, and exerted phenomenal effort in an attempt to chart them. As a result, when the Empire was defeated, Palpatine’s most loyal Imperials fled out into the Unknown Regions, where they regrouped and became the First Order. The Unknown Regions became particularly important in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which introduced the Sith redoubt Exegol, an almost inaccessible world lost for millennia.
