The ‘Star Wars’ x adidas Originals Rivalry Hi “Chewbacca”

Via Hypebeast.com:

Every time we see a Star Wars x adidas Originals sneaker, we’re transported to another universe in terms of outlandish designs and faithful character references, but nothing compares to the duo’s latest pair — the Rivalry Hi “Chewbacca.”

The legendary Wookiee warrior has been honored through-and-through with his own pair of Rivalry Hi sneakers, which are made from leather, suede, and a faux fur fabric that looks as if your feet have turned into Chewbacca’s. adidas Originals has used a color palette consisting of “Raw Desert,” “Mesa,” and “Chalk White,” to further channel the Wookiee realness.

There are also a number of other details that help bring this shoe to life. For example, a strap on the tongue is a nod to the belt Chewbacca wore during Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, while “STAR” and “WARS” lace locks have been added in chrome silver to make sure you know exactly what you’re repping.

Chewbacca’s face and name grace the tonal tongue tag, while his entire seven-foot, five-inch body has been shrunk to fit on the insole. On the interior side of the tongue tag there is a further reference to the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and rounding out the pair is a debossed Trefoil logo on the heel.

The Star Wars x adidas Originals Rivalry Hi “Chewbacca” is set to release on adidas’ website on October 21 for £119.95 GBP (approx. $155 USD). Take a closer look at the pair above.

Today at Facebook Connect, ILMxLAB pulled back the curtain just a little further on Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, debuting a new teaser along with some major reveals: Anthony Daniels will reprise his role as the iconic C-3PO, Yoda is set to appear, and the experience will release this holiday season. StarWars.com caught up with Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge director Jose Perez III to discuss the origins of the experience, featuring ol’ goldenrod himself, and more.

How Rey’s Yellow Lightsaber Compares To Luke’s Blue Saber


Via Screenrant.com:

Rey constructs a unique yellow-bladed lightsaber at the end of The Rise of Skywalker, and it’s a far cry from Luke and Anakin’s blue saber.

At the end of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, after burying the lightsabers of her mentors Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, Rey reveals her newly-constructed, yellow-bladed lightsaber – but it’s noticeably different in several ways. Set decades after Luke Skywalker revives Jedi traditions in Return of the Jedi, the Star Wars sequel series features a number of characters reckoning with the legacy that he and his companions left behind. Prime among them is Rey, whose journey along the Jedi path is complicated by her familial relationship to Sheev Palpatine, one of the fiercest Sith Lords of all time and the architect behind the near-extermination of the Jedi.
