Fortnite’s collaboration with Star Wars began in 2019 with the original Imperial stormtrooper cosmetic. Since then, the game has added a whopping total of 12 characters from the landmark science-fantasy franchise.
Promotion for 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker introduced sequel characters Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, Zorii Bliss, and a Sith Trooper as purchasable skins. The Mandalorian (with Grogu as an accessory) was featured as a playable skin in Chapter 2, Season 5 (2020). Promotion for The Book of Boba Fett saw Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, and Krrsantan available for purchase the following year. Most recently, Obi-Wan Kenobi was made available in the store to promote the Disney+ series of the same name.
The imposing Darth Vader was recently included in the game’s Battle Pass—a tiered reward system that players can purchase to unlock in-game cosmetics as they level up. Vader was the very last reward in the Battle Pass, waiting for only the most dedicated players.
Now, after years of collaborating, Fortnite has finally added the three most requested and recognizable characters from the franchise: Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa, and Han Solo!
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Lightsabers. Blasters. Quests. A reimagined Junk Rift. And the dark side returns.

Each skin individually will cost 1,500 V-bucks (Fortnite’s in-game currency that’s purchased with real money). Luke can be purchased in a bundle that includes: three selectable styles (farm boy, Jedi knight, and cloaked), a training remote back-bling accessory, a landspeeder glider, a speeder bike traversal emote, and the “slugthrower rifle” harvesting tool. Each item can be purchased separately at full price, but the bundle is on sale for 2,400 V-bucks (1,300 V-bucks off of full price).
Han and Leia are also available in a bundle for 2,500 V-bucks (1,500 off!) which includes their alternative styles, a Millenium Falcon back-bling, an R2D2 back-bling, and two somewhat generic looking harvesting tools (a vibro-staff and electro-staff).
Han’s styles include his classic smuggler appearance, his camouflage duster jacket from Endor, and another variation on the smuggler outfit but with different pants. Leia’s styles include her classic white gown (with an option to take the hood off), her Boushh bounty hunter disguise, and another Boushh option with a cape. Both Boushh skins can have the helmet removed.
The addition of the skins is a big win for Star Wars fans who have been requesting these characters since the collaboration began. Will you be purchasing the bundles?
