The Star Wars Haynes: Rebel Starfighter Owners’ Workshop Manual

The Star Wars Haynes Rebel Starfighter Owners' Workshop Manual
The Star Wars Haynes Rebel Starfighter Owners’ Workshop Manual

After the Clone Wars, the Galactic Empire spared no expense to build a massive fleet of warships to enforce Imperial rule, intimidate defenceless worlds, and destroy all opposition. However, the Imperial Navy underestimated Rebel Alliance fighter pilots, who flew X-wing, Y-wing, A-wing, U-wing and B-wing starfighters, and whatever else they could obtain to fight their Imperial enemies. Decades later, Resistance pilots would fly next-generation versions of Rebel starfighters against the First Order.

The Rebel Starfighters Owners’ Workshop Manual presents a thorough history of the starfighters that served the Rebel Alliance and the Resistance. The history includes design origins, production, and modifications for each Rebel starfighter, and is fully illustrated with numerous photographs, schematics, exploded diagrams, and computer-generated artwork by Star Wars vehicle experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author and co-author of more than 70 Star Wars books.

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Rise of the Resistance Poster

Disney has just announced that the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attraction will be opening in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on December 5th, 2019. The attraction is also set to open at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland on January 17th, 2020, delayed from the previously announced “later this year” opening date.

Alongside this, they have released a previously seen Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Rise of the Resistance Poster, but who is the artist…could it be Paul Shipper or even Jason Palmer, both are great favourites of Disney and Lucasfilm for this hand-drawn style of the poster.
