To mark the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, Titan is releasing a special tribute issue of Star Wars Insider with three collectible newsstand covers.

This 100-page commemorative issue includes interviews with the cast and crew of The Empire Strikes Back, including: George Lucas, (story and executive producer), Irvin Kershner (Director), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Kenny Baker (R2-D2), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) and Jeremy Bulloch (Boba Fett).

The magazine also features interviews with the team behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars looking back on The Empire Strikes Back, 50 amazing facts about Empire and an Empire merchandise guide. Plus, much more must-have material for all Star Wars fans.

These three special Empire covers, which feature Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia, are only available for purchase on newsstands.

Jonathan Wilkins, editor of Star Wars Insider says: "The three heroes of The Empire Strikes Back are at the top of every bounty hunter hit list. Here at Insider we thought we'd make it a little easier for fans to get their hands on their favorite Rebels."
