On Sale: 14 Dec 2021
A long time ago (in 1971), George Lucas founded Lucasfilm, the motion picture company that celebrates its 50th anniversary on December 10, 2021. In doing so, he joined a long line of cinematic innovators that began with the Lumière brothers in 1895 with their groundbreaking invention, the Cinématographe, that had people queueing around the block for a glimpse at the wonder of moving pictures.
With such an auspicious occasion to commemorate, this issue of Star Wars Insider brings you a fascinating account of the company’s 50-year story from Lucasfilm historians Pete Vilmur and Lucas O. Seastrom, but that’s not the only anniversary we’re celebrating. We trace the unique history and impact of Star Wars: The Old Republic, the MMORPG that arrived a decade ago and is still going strong. We also speak to Drew Struzan about his iconic Star Wars poster art, get codebreaking with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019) actor Dominic Monaghan, and find out why a part in The Mandalorian (2019-present) was such a big deal for guest star Diana Lee Inosanto.
Plus, all-new and exclusive Star Wars: The High Republic fiction with part one of ‘Shadows Remain’ by Justina Ireland!
