Star Wars Heroes On British Stamps


To celebrate the upcoming release of Episode VII and the role of British film industry in making the Star Wars films, Royal Mail is planning to release a collection of Star Wars themed stamps. From the 20th October onwards, if you end up sending letters to your friends from within the UK, or if you are just a dedicated philatelist, you will have the chance to get the 12 stamps featuring characters from both the old trilogy and The Force Awakens.

The Royal Mail will also issue several collectible items and with the release of the seventh film (17th of December) also a special stamp book. The book will include information and pictures related to all the British actors who have taken part in the Star Wars films.

Rostislav Kurka
Rostislav is a Protestant theologian and a self-trained Sith, counting Jan Hus, Dorothee Sölle, Darth Revan and Darth Traya among his main influences. He hails from the hundred-towered city of Prague, where he had spent a large part of his life creating worlds and inspiring young generations to roleplay. His involvement in organising children's camps led him to accidentally writing a Lord of the Rings musical, which made him temporarily famous, and a Three Musketeer-Jedi fanfilm, which didn't. He has recently moved to the frozen waste of Finland, because that's it, the Rebels are there.
