Star Wars week on TechRadar

We're over the moon* that every year is now bringing us more Star Wars, and this year - in case you've been pushed into a waste compactor - we get an honest to goodness numbered film with Star Wars VIII, The Last Jedi, hitting the silver screen. 

Here at TechRadar, we're huge fans of a galaxy far, far away, so we're celebrating this new arrival to the Star Wars world with a series of articles. 

We've caught up with special effects maven Dennis Muren, picked out our favourite T-Shirts and decided which real-world tech would be beloved by the Empire and the First Order.  

*That's no moon...
