Star Wars-themed stamps to mark release of new film


Royal Mail has revealed images of the final set of stamps in its own Star Wars-themed collection.

The 16-stamp set will mark next month’s release of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, and features characters and vehicles from the Skywalker saga.

Ten stamps feature the characters Count Dooku, Lando Calrissian, Sith Trooper, Jannah, Grand Moff Tarkin, Darth Maul, Zorii Bliss, Wicket Warrick, Poe Dameron, and Queen Amidala.

Six stamps feature some of the most famous vehicles in the Star Wars galaxy, including a Podracer and Slave I.

Poe’s X-wing fighter, a Jedi starfighter, the TIE silencer, and speeder bikes also make an appearance.

All 10 character stamps are exclusive illustrations by digital artist and Star Wars fan Malcolm Tween.

Philip Parker, of Royal Mail, said: “Once again Malcolm Tween takes us on a journey across the Star Wars galaxy with extraordinary artwork of characters old and new.

“The stamps are miniature masterpieces and a fitting tribute to mark the end of the Skywalker saga.”

The stamps will be available from November 26.
