Production on Star Wars: Rogue One is under way across the pond, and some spy photos have revealed temple walls resembling those on Yavin IV in Star Wars: A New Hope as well as a shrouded X-Wing. However, this isn’t one of the newer X-Wings from The Force Awakens, but rather the classic design from the original trilogy, which only makes sense considering this takes place before A New Hope. If you want to see the photos, head over to MakingStarWars.net right here.
Above is a piece of fanmade artwork that appears in a cool Star Wars round-up of pieces designed by Star Wars fans. There’s some other cool pieces feature Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Stormtrooper in the middle of a big battle, and much more. Check out the rest of the artwork at ForeverGeek.com right here.Some new excerpts for books that will be part of The Journey to The Force Awakens have popped up online since they novels are now available for pre-order on iTunes and Google Play with a sneak preview of the pages inside. If you head on over, you can take a look at pages from Lost Stars by Claudia Gray, Smuggler’s Run by Greg Rucka, Moving Target by Cecil Castelluci, and The Weapon of a Jedi by Jason Fry. The above image comes from one of the books geared towards kids. (via: MakingStarWars.net)
