We are thrilled to announce that Lucasfilm and the StarWars.com team have once again won several Webby Awards!

The crew of The Star Wars Show, which recently returned from four uproarious days of live coverage of Star Wars Celebration Chicago, claimed both the Webby Award and the People’s Voice Award in Social: Television & Film as well as the Webby Award for Video: Variety.

Our Live From the Red Carpet of Solo: A Star Wars Story! coverage nabbed the People’s Voice Winner in Video: Events & Live streams.

And for the third year in a row, StarWars.com won the People’s Voice Award for Website in the Movie & Film category. It’s a distinct honor to receive so many People’s Voice prizes since this award is voted on by you, the fans!

The team behind StarWars.com was also humbled to be named as an honoree in the category of Websites: Best User Experience.

Over 23 years, the Webby Awards have become the leading international award honoring excellence online, with prizes chosen by a group of over 2,000 judges through the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and a second winner designated by popular vote.

Thank you to the fans who cast their votes and have shown support for StarWars.com and The Star Wars Show each and every day by visiting, viewing, reading, commenting, and sharing in the experience of being Star Wars fan right along with us.

Porgs and Other Props From the Lucasfilm Display Case

Lucky visitors to the halls of Lucasfilm can now get a closer look at the touch-ably soft downy feathers of a screen-used porg puppet and other props from the most recent Star Wars films.

Props are shown in the Lucasfilm display case.

But for those who can’t make it to San Francisco, this week the excitable hosts of The Star Wars Show make a mad dash down the hall from our converted copy room recording studio to give you a glimpse at the glorious pieces.

“We made these selections from our new films to showcase the breadth and incredible craftsmanship of our Costume, Props, and Creature FX departments,” says Collections & Exhibitions Archivist Madlyn Burkert.

Among the amazing props and pieces:

A helmet is shown in the Lucasfilm display case.

• Finn’s bloodied First Order bucket and a Praetorian Guard helmet, from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

A broken lightsaber is shown in the Lucasfilm display case.

• The blaster Han Solo gives to Rey in The Force Awakens and the broken lightsaber from The Last Jedi.

An assortment of toys are shown in the Lucasfilm display case.

• Jyn Erso’s collection of wooden toys, including Stormie, as seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

• The card reader from Han’s enlistment in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

A Porg puppet is shown in the Lucasfilm display case.

• And one of Burkert’s personal favorites: the porg! “I love his little teeth and all the intricate featherwork,” says Burkert, “and I am thrilled to be able to showcase the talent of our creature artists!”
