Star Wars Sky Remotes
Three of the special edition Sky remotesSky

Sky is celebrating the launch of its dedicated Sky Movies Star Wars channel and the release of new film The Force Awakens on 17 December with 10 Star Wars-themed remote controls that feature various designs based on R2-D2, Darth Vader, C-3PO and others.

The range functions with the Sky+ HD box and is being released to coincide with the launch of Sky Movies Star Wars, which will show all six existing Star Wars films as well as TV specials relating to JJ Abrams's Episode 7.

There are remotes featuring all the original trilogy stars, including Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia. Our favourite is probably the C-3PO design, followed by the R2-D2 and Vader ones based on the iconic designs of those characters.

There are second remotes with more traditional (more boring) designs for Stormtroopers and Vader. Techradar had an exclusive look at the designs, which we have collated above and below. The offer is only available in the UK, so US and Australian users will have to look elsewhere.

The remotes are available to purchase from sky.com/accessories for £24.99 each. Sky Movies Star Wars launches on 11 December on channel 304. All six Star Wars films will also be available to watch on demand through Sky Go. Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits UK cinemas on 17 December.
