Shadows '96

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars movie. But did you know it is also the 21st anniversary of the Lucasfilm multimedia event Shadows of the Empire? Designed to include everything but a movie, the unforgettable story was told across trading cards, action figures, a soundtrack, even one of the first Nintendo64 games. But what if…? What if they actually had made a movie back in 1996? Who would have brought to life the now-classic Star Wars characters Dash Rendar, Prince Xizor, and Guri the life model android? The film may never be real, but now you can buy the poster.
