It’s Wednesday, which means one thing: new comic books! Check out a preview of new Star Wars comics available today after the jump!
Combining stunning visuals, incisive gameplay, and smart level design, the Star Wars: Battlefront video games took fans into the Star Wars universe in previously unexplored ways. The series beautifully showcased Star Wars locales, featured intense ground-battle action, and allowed gamers to fight for the Empire, the Republic, the Rebellion, and other factions. They were not just great Star Wars games; they were great video games in their own right. And we are thrilled to confirm that the series will continue.
Wondering what’s been happening at StarWars.com? Here’s a quick roundup of what you might have missed this week!
It’s Cinco de Mayo, but it’s also the day after May the 4th. You may still be feeling the need to celebrate Star Wars today, but don’t know how. Fear not; there is a way to make Cinco de Mayo strong with the Force.
Ever wonder what it would be like to see a tag-team wrestling match with Darth Vader and Darth Maul against Boba Fett and General Grievous? We do too, and better yet, they should be wearing Lucha Libre (Mexican wrestling) masks!
Lucha Libre masks hold special meaning for the luchadores who wear them. The masks represent animals, legendary heroes and ancient gods. The luchador never reveals his true identity by taking off his mask or he could be disqualified from a match. Even when luchadores retire, they often still wear their masks in public.
Here’s what we think Star Wars luchadores masks should look like, illustrated by Star Wars artist Randy Martinez. Print them out and wear them for fun!

Thirty years ago this month, Return of the Jedi made its debut at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. It seems only fitting then that on May the 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day, fans have been celebrating the beloved film’s landmark anniversary at the very same place it was first seen by an audience. As Darth Vader once said, “The circle is now complete.”
In February, We Love Fine, purveyors of some of the Internet’s most inventive and creative fan-made tees, asked designers to call on the power of the dark side for their Dark Side Design Contest. The theme of the contest: submit T-shirt designs featuring only Sith, bounty hunters, and other scum and villainy of the Star Wars universe. Fans embraced the challenge, and now the winners — selected by a panel of guest celebrity judges — can be revealed!
