Empire Reveals Star Wars Prequels 25th Anniversary Covers


“Hello there.”

Yesterday, Empire posted a mysterious message on their social media that featured a familiar Star Wars quote on a space background, “TOMORROW. 4PM.” – What does that mean? Are they breaking the news of an Obi-Wan Season 2 on Disney+?

Today, Empire revealed covers for their Star Wars prequels 25th anniversary. Was THIS what they were going to announce? But, it’s not 4pm. What is planned for later today?

From the Empire article:

The new issue of Empire is an epic celebration of Episodes I, II, and III, revisiting the movies with the people who made them. Inside, we have brand new cast interviews, including major conversations – and exclusive photo shoots – with Anakin Skywalker himself, Hayden Christensen, and the one and only Emperor Palpatine, Ian McDiarmid; also speaking to Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman, Liam Neeson, Samuel L. Jackson, Brian Blessed and more on their memories of the trilogy. Plus, we revisit iconic sequences with producer Rick McCallum, stunt co-ordinator Nick Gillard, and concept designer Iain McCaig, breaking down the Podrace in Episode I, the arena battle in Episode II, and the Mustafar duel in Episode III; we get a closer look at rarely-seen concept art from across the trilogy; we speak to designer Ellen Lee Moon on the story behind her legendary Phantom Menace poster. We even catch up with Elan Sleazebaggano himself, Matt Doran. (No death sticks for us, thank you.) It’s the ultimate look back at the trilogy that changed everything.

The issue features two collectible covers (“Always two, there are,” a wise Jedi once told us), illustrated exclusively for Empire by Paul Shipper, bringing together characters from across the entire trilogy. On the light side cover, we have Anakin in Jedi mode, joined by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padmé, Mace Windu, Yoda, and Qui-Gon Jinn.
