The Force is with Star Wars fans as stamps unveiled

By Rachael Burnett

A special edition set of Star Wars stamps will be released to mark the latest movie in the sci-fi series. The set of eight, illustrated by artist Malcolm Tween, will be released to commemorate the upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which launches in December.

They will feature images of new and classic characters alongside spaceships from the films in specially-created scenes, Royal Mail said.

Maz Kanata, Chewbacca, Supreme Leader Snoke, R2-D2 and C-3PO are among those that will appear on the collection. Four of the stamps on sale from October 12 will have details in fluorescent ink only visible under UV light.
