To paraphrase that crazy old hermit, Ben Kenobi: “Bantha Tracks is a title I’ve not heard for a long time. A long time.” Like many Star Wars Insiderreaders of a similar vintage, I was once a card-carrying member of The Official Star WarsFanclub, in those long-ago days whenBantha Tracks was its quarterly newsletter. Whenever a new edition arrived through the mail, I’d thrill at the exciting Star Warsnews contained within, and I still have every copy I ever received—stored in a lovingly crafted shoebox archive decorated with stickers and a hand-drawn version of the newsletter logo. Banthas are pretty hard to draw in felt-tip pen, right? I would never have imagined that years later I’d be the editor of its spiritual successor, especially on the occasion ofInsider’s 200th edition, at a…

anthony daniels’ 200 th  (ish) wonder column

The big question has always been, “Is it hot in the costume?” I had a simple answer (and after a long day, a rather curt one), “Usually.” But in recent years I am often faced with a somewhat more difficult inquiry. I don’t really know how to answer it. I think it’s actually a question of perspective. The many millions of Star Wars fans around our planet have watched, observed, enjoyed each episode of the saga on variously sized screens, from a certain point of view. Though the series’ main impact has been through the movies, it’s been filled-out with documentaries, novels, and jottings; most notoriously, The Wonder Column (are you old enough to remember?), that I was proud to write for Star Wars Insider magazine so many years ago. I never realized…

When I was around ten-years old, Darth Vader visited my London primary school. He was dressed in a white and green jumpsuit with broad epaulets and a giant green cross on his chest. During that morning’s assembly he spoke to us (in an unfamiliar accent) about road safety, using the alias The Green Cross Code Man. The Star Wars fans in the main hall that day recognized him as Dave Prowse, the man who had recently terrified us all as the Dark Lord of the Sith in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). As Vader, Prowse was the most feared being in the cosmos, but as The Green Cross Code Man—a superhero who, in a series of public information films, taught kids how to cross the road safely—he was one of…

star wars steps up a gear!

Make a note in your calendars. the next Star Wars feature film will arrive in theaters in December 2023! Rogue Squadron, to be directed by Patty Jenkins, was announced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy at a Walt Disney Company event in December. But that wasn’t the only revelation to be made that day, as a host of new Star Wars shows for Disney+ were also made public. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will be executive producing two dramas set in the same time period as The Mandalorian, with the live-action Ahsoka series, starring Rosario Dawson, to be written by Filoni himself. Meanwhile, Rangers of the New Republic will intersect with future Mandalorian adventures and culminate in a climactic story event. The already announced series focusing on Diego Luna’s character from 2016’s Rogue…

The first images of one of the completed cabins aboard the Hyperion—the ambitious Star Wars-themed accommodation experience currently under construction at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida—were released by Disney Parks in November, showing a comfortably appointed cabin rich with Star Wars detail. The futuristic suite (from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away of course!) offers a comfortable queen-sized double bed and cool built-in bunks for younger passengers, along with a viewport looking out into the depths of space. The Hyperion is expected to lift off in 2021. Until then, you can scan for the latest news and updates at disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog.…
