Another issue of Star Wars Insider is coming up soon! And you’re not going to want to miss what’s inside this one. The official Star Wars magazine is packed full of good things this round (isn’t it always?), from exclusive interviews to short fiction and behind-the-scenes looks.
Star Wars Insider #221, hitting newsstands on September 26 (next week!), is a celebration of everything on fans’ minds right now — Return of the Jedi‘s 40th anniversary, The High Republic, space moms, and more. Let’s take a closer look at what you’ll find between its covers.
First up: An interview with the special effects supervisors on Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Their involvement in bringing the trilogy’s final chapter to life was no small feat, and they spoke exclusively with Star Wars Insider in celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary.
Regular contributor Amy Richau also swoops in with “Space Moms,” an essay celebrating motherhood in the Star Wars galaxy. From Venisa Doza to Hera Syndulla, Leia Organa to Mon Mothma, space moms matter, and this entry proves it.
Also included: A behind-the-scenes look backstage at the show floor during this year’s Star Wars Celebration event. Plus, an exclusive companion to The High Republic Phase II, an interview with High Republic author Tessa Gratton (who will be back for Phase III!), and the first in a trilogy of original short fiction stories by writer S.T. Bende.
As usual, the issue also includes a roundup of recent and upcoming Star Wars books and comics and recaps of other Star Wars news you may have missed.
