Le Creuset, which has launched everything from Mickey Mouse to Beauty and the Beast-themed dishes, has added another Disney franchise to its lineup, with the new Star Wars x Le Creuset collection. It features a Han Solo in Carbonite roaster, a Porg pie bird, Death Star and Millennium Falcon silicone mats, and a variety of dutch ovens and cocottes inspired by BB-8, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Darth Vader.
Introducing the @starwars x Le Creuset Collection, available for purchase November 1st exclusively at select Le Creuset boutique stores, online, and from @yuppiechef.

Le Creuset announced the new collection in a video tweet, which ends with a warning that the cookware "does not emit sounds or illuminate". If you want to get your, um, oven mitts on these things, Le Creuset said they’ll be available from 1 November at its stores, online shop, and elsewhere. Just expect to spend a small fortune if you plan to get the entire limited-edition cookware set.
The roaster, for instance, will cost $450. But the most expensive of the bunch is the hand-painted Tatooine round Dutch oven, of which only four will be made and sold in the US, for $900 a pop. You can sign up here to get notified when it goes on sale. Le Creuset promised that its dutch oven will deliver an "end result that's anything but dry - unlike the sun-scorched lands of Tatooine".
Hardy har har, Le Creuset.
Thankfully, for those of us who aren't high-rollers, there are few affordable pieces, like the trivets, which will cost $20. The Porg pie bird - which sits in your pie in order to let out steam - will cost $25, and the mini dutch ovens are $30
There's no word yet on UK pricing or availability.
