The Royal Mail is issuing a set of eight stamps ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the latest film in the franchise.

They feature droids and aliens which have appeared in the film series, including new and old characters, from Chewbacca and C-3PO to Maz Kanata and BB-8.
Certain design features on the four droid stamps are only visible under UV light, and the style of the "1st" value on the stamps replicates the film's font.The Last Jedi - Episode VIII in the Star Wars universe - is the second in the current trilogy, coming after The Force Awakens. It opens in cinemas in December.
