Star Wars skins, planets and sounds are live in 'Minecraft'

The Star Wars brand has been extended to a creative, block-based platform — and no, we’re not talking about Lego this time. The Star Wars DLC pack is available now in Minecraft, featuring a new map, skin pack, texture set, mobs and item reskins, a fresh UI, and original soundtrack and sound effects. It also unlocks ridable vehicles like speeders and X-Wings. The pack costs 1,340 Minecoins, or less than $20.

The Star Wars Minecraft bundle includes characters and locations from A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Mandalorian. It features 12 planet dioramas connected by Hyperspace travel, including Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, Nevarro and Sorgan.

In related intergalactic news, The Mandalorian is back on Disney+ with season two, which began airing in late October.
