COOKWARE giants Le Creuset have launched a new range — based on Star Wars.
Fans can begin buying the movie-inspired collection next month ahead of the release of the next film, The Rise of Skywalker.
The cookware range includes a £295 Darth Vader Dutch oven ideal for slow cooking or a Stewbacca.
Tiny R2-D2 and C-3PO mini cocotte dishes are available at £25 each.
Punters can also purchase Death Star and Millennium Falcon silicone heat-resistant trivet mats for £15 a pop.
But perhaps best of all is Pan Solo – a limited edition Han Solo in Carbonite Signature Roaster costing £360.
Made from ‘enamelled cast iron, and finished in a striking, stone grey’, the dish is designed for casseroles and oven roasting.
‘LOVE THE COLLAB’
Nine special edition hand-made Tatooine round Dutch oven are also being made but will only be available in the US at $900.
Fans will have to pre-register to be in with a shout of buying one. The French firm told The Sun: “The Star Wars X Le Creuset collaboration is a hugely exciting launch for us.
“Combining iconic characters with our legendary quality, the limited-edition collection is a thrilling addition to Le Creuset’s beloved product range that can be enjoyed by generations of Star Wars fans and families alike’.”
And fans are feeling the sauce. Carla Westy tweeted: “I am a 30 year old that had two obsessions which I would gladly spend my cash on. Star Wars and Le Creuset. I LOVE the collab!”
Kevin Scott joked: “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away someone wondered just how far Star Wars merchandising would go and shortly after a decision was reached, word emerged of the Star Wars / Le Creuset tie-up and a new marker was set.

Matthew De Abaitua tweeted: “I thought about this when my friend sent me an image of the Le Creuset and Star Wars tie-in, and I sensed a disturbance in the sauce.”
The limited-edition Star Wars x Le Creuset Collection is available at select Le Creuset boutique stores and online from November 1.
The latest film in the epic franchise, The Rise of Skywalker, will be released on December 20.
