Secrets 07

Secrets of Star Wars 07 was a feature on Hyperspace: The Official Star Wars Fan Club that showed artist sketches and renditions of possible scenes, characters, or objects that may appear in the future of Star Wars. It began on May 10, 2006 with the image "Force Repulse." It culminated on December 20, 2006 with the image "Running the Trench". Most of the sketches eventually turned out to be the concept artwork for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed video game, which was originally slated to be released in 2007, but was later pushed back to 2008. summaryEdit

2007 may mark the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars, but the biggest Star Wars entertainment event of the year won't be found on the big screen. Hyperspace members catch this exclusive first look at the next major addition to the Star Wars
