THE MEMORABLE ISSUES FEATURES COMICS, ADS FOR STAR WARS BATH BUBBLES, AND MUCH MORE.
Star Wars in the UK is a feature in which StarWars.com looks at how our friends across the galactic pond experienced the saga through the years.
Two years of stepping back to 1978, our tour of the first dozen issues of Star Wars Weekly comes to an end as we take a look at issue 12. Hitting UK newsagents on Wednesday April 26th 1978, the cover screamed that we were about to experience the “SOUL-SHATTERING CLIMAX OF THE YEAR’S MOST SENSATIONAL MOVIE.” Behind a Howard Bender cover showing Luke and Vader clashing, both brandishing red lightsabres (and I spell it that way intentionally, as that’s how it was presented in the magazine back in ’78), we see a red X-wing hunt down Vader’s yellow TIE fighter over a blue Death Star. It was still 10p to buy, still packed full of great back-up strips and increasingly essential for kids of the day to own.

The Star Wars franchise made a triumphant return in recent years, starting with the Force Awakens in 2015 and Rogue One last year.
The pop culture phenomenon was once again welcomed positively by the masses, and it comes as no surprise that a follow up of its video game adaptation, “Star Wars: Battlefront”, will soon be released as well.
Gaming titan EA, as per Business Insider, finally divulged details of the highly anticipated sequel, starting with the game’s new star—a heroine named Iden Versio.
According to EA, the intergalactic bad-ass chick will lead a special forces unit called the Inferno Squad, which started havoc in Endor when the second Death Star exploded.
Unlike its predecessor which focused mainly on multiplayer battles, “Battlefront II” will have a narrative-driven, single-player story campaign.
Aside from Iden, users will also be able control the franchise’s most familiar faces, including the likes of Anakin Skywalker and Kylo Ren.
Another facet of the upcoming game will be a much improved space battles feature, which will once again bring the multiplayer mode to new heights.
“Players can drop into the cockpit of the galaxy’s most iconic ships, weave between asteroid fields and fly through imperial dockyards in high stakes dogfights,” EA described the feature.
But perhaps its most endearing update will be a larger scale for online battles, which will now reportedly support 40 players at a time.
“Star Wars: Battlefront II” will be made available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will hit gaming stores worldwide on November 17.
This winter, the Star Wars universe will grow a little bigger when the Skywalker Saga ushers in its eighth installment. The iconic sci-fi franchise is set to premiere Star Wars: The Last Jedi this December, and the film will follow Rey as the girl begins training with Luke Skywalker whilst the First Order rages on. The film recently sent fans’ hype into hyperdrive when Star Wars Celebration revealed the first trailer for The Last Jedi, and there is now more good news to bask in. Lucasfilm may be busy with the franchise’s eighth film, but Colin Trevorrow has been hard at work on Star Wars’ ninth film. And, soon, the executives over at Lucasfilm will give their say on the movie’s script.
Over on Star Wars News Net, the fan-site managed to track down a recent interview Kathleen Kennedy did with Spanish outlet E-Cartela about the franchise. It was there that president of Lucasfilm confirmed script readings of Star Wars: Episode IX would begin very soon.
“To be honest, we are beginning to talk about [the spin-offs] right now. We have four or five weeks immersed in the film ‘Han Solo’ and we are about to read the script of Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX directed, so we have a lot of work at the moment,” she explained.
Many fans already knew Episode IX was well on its way through pre-production thanks to Trevorrow. The director appeared at Cinema Con not long ago, and he revealed that the movie’s first script draft was finished.
“We’re writing, and we’re designing, and there is a draft,” Trevorrow said. “You know, we’re throwing 110 percent of our souls into it, so there will be nothing left of me when I’m done.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, from writer/director Rian Johnson, is in post-production now for a December 15, 2017 release. The film follows-up and continues the story of the next generation of the saga as Rey, Poe, Finn, and Kylo Ren find their place in the galaxy and follow the legacy of Luke Skywalker, Leia, and Han Solo. Daisy Ridley returns to star as Rey, with other returning stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong’o Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa. Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern join the cast in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

Star Wars: Rebels
Dave Filoni spoke to IGN about how season four ties into Rogue One, discussing how the show’s brighter color palette when it comes to its Rebels soldiers will peter out and give way to the drabber colors of the original trilogy:
Now that Rogue One is out, it opens up a lot of possibilities for us to tell these stories. We can go to Yavin now. We can start to deal with the way things worked out in the film and include ideas that are happening prior to that. The look of the background rebels really shifts to being more of the kind of drab military colors that you see in Rogue One. The Phoenix group of Rebel soldiers are kind of petering out.
So they’re redistributed into Mon Mothma’s group on Yavin and Dodonna’s group. You see a restructuring of certain cells, and certain cells get destroyed. And that’s true of the ships as well. So there’s lots of little, neat, detail level things that happen when our characters are heading into season 4 and are absorbed into the kind of pre-Rogue One era, which I thought they did beautifully in the film.

Much is made in Hollywood of chameleons – actors who have the ability to “disappear” into a role, appearing “unrecognisable” – while less is said about versatility. At rest, the faces of the best movie actors contain multitudes. Robert Mitchum had the broken-nosed face of a brute but the sleepy, languid eyes of an angel – “Bing Crosby on barbiturates”, in film critic James Agee’s phrase. Bette Davis could switch from glam to dowdy with the angle of her head and a couple of fill lights. And Robert De Niro’s ability to frown and smile simultaneously is legendary.
Oscar Isaac has that kind of face. His low-lidded eyes can smoulder, but there is also a quickness behind them, and a touch of disappointed calculation. It made him perfect for the hapless, couch-surfing folk musician soaking up disappointments like a wet sock in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, the 2013 film that put him on the map at the age of 35. He has been working since, playing the hotshot pilot Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the slinky, tactile, tech-era Mephistopheles in Alex Garland’s Ex Machina. He is at his best playing ambitious, slightly myopic men whose own movement quickens their fall: a Queens oil importer struggling to stay the right side of the law in JC Chandor’s excellent A Most Violent Year, a doomed politician brutally felled by civic machination in HBO’s Show Me a Hero. He has made a career playing men for whom careerism doesn’t work.
