Star Wars has infiltrated western culture in so many ways. Here we take a quick look back at how the film has been portrayed on magazine covers over the last 40 years. From A New Hope in 1977 to The Last Jedi in 2017.
People Weekly was one of the first mainstream titles to feature Star Wars on the cover, in 1977.
The old and new kids on the block are represented on this duel cover of TIME. New and old characters also appear on Rolling Stone, while Mad goes for the fun option.
Covers are becoming increasingly creative.
And of course Luke Skywalker is still going strong, portrayed on covers this year.
