The stunning Star Wars Land model was unveiled at D23 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center, it’s a massive 50-foot model for the Star Wars-themed land coming to Disneyland Resort and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Based on a never-before-seen planet — and not quite like any we’ve seen in Star Wars thus far — the model is filled with beautiful miniature dwellings and vehicles, surrounded by forest and rocky terrain.
As the master Sith Lord once said, it is most impressive!!
In these 42 Hi res images, there’s also a BB-8 in there…can you spot him?
One of the most cunning and ruthless warrior in the history of the Galactic Empire, Grand Admiral Thrawn is one of the most captivating characters in the Star Wars universe. From his introduction in the best-selling author Timothy Zahn’s classic Heir to the Empire through his continuing adventures in Dark Force Rising, The Last Command and beyond. Grand Admiral Thrawn has earned an iconic status among the greatest Star Wars villains. But Thrawn’s origins and the story of his rise in the Imperial ranks have remained mysterious. Now, in Star Wars: Thrawn, Timothy Zahn chronicles the fateful events that launched the blue-skinned, red.eyed master of military strategy and lethal warfare into the highest realms of power-and infamy.
But this isn’t a review of Timothy Zahn’s ambitious book, but the creative work that went on behind the scenes creating the iconic artwork of the book by Two Dots, a creative studio dedicated to the entertainment industry, and their client…LucasFilm.
This blocking-in technique they use below is so reminiscent of the Star Wars concept artist veteran Ryan Church.
Major League Baseball has kicked off a year-long celebration of a galaxy far, far away. The Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox and many others have already hosted Star Wars Night, all with special giveaways, events, costumed characters, and more.
LA Dodgers will be hosting the first July Star Wars Night and they’ve created quite a great looking T-Shirt and brand logo for their night, which I’ve re-created in various designs which are not available, and the following are only alternative concepts.

Lucasfilm and Disney have just released the first installment of the new Forces of Destiny micro series on their YouTube channel, entitled Sands of Jakku . The episode takes place on Jakku (obviously) and appears to occur shortly after Rey has rescued BB-8 from Teedo. Rey and BB-8 encounter the same type of creature BB-8 rolled by at night in The Force Awakens, a creature that we all likely assumed was a harmless adjunct in the grand scheme of things, but it turns out this harmless looking wide red-eyed alien has a lot more going on under the sands of Jakku than we imagined, and it turns out this desert monster, known as the Nightwatcher Worm which feeds on junk and is more than happy to satisfy its hunger with BB-8.
The episode shows Rey and BB-8 having to deal with the Nightwatcher Worm . What quite sweet is that original The Force Awakens actresses Lupita Nyong’o voices Maz Kanata and so does Daisy Ridley as Rey.
There’s quite a nice scene where Rey almost uses some hidden Jedi and Force intuition to avert the Nightwatcher Worm from sensing her.
