Remember that time Luke Skywalker got so cold on Hoth he had to carve out that poor Tauntaun’s guts and sleep inside its carcass just to stay warm.

Well, what if you could wear a coat similar to his?!?!?

That’s pretty much what clothing company Columbia is trying to do with the release of three new coats all inspired by Episode V of the original Star Wars trilogy.

Columbia has released limited quantities of a winter outerwear collection based on the classic gear worn by Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker in the Empire Strikes Back film.

Last year Columbia sold a similar collection of outerwear based on the wardrobe of Rouge One: A Star Wars Story characters.  

This new Columbia Echo Base collection includes two jackets and a parka that looks warmer than Chewbacca’s fur. Each piece is waterproof and comes with Columbia’s Omni-Heat reflective fabric meant to conserve body heat. The gear is actually quite sleek and appealing, especially if you’ve always dreamed of wearing Rebel Alliance gear.   

The jackets include slight shoutouts to the series including the rebel alliance logo and patches that have quotes from the movie. The Echo Base collection will be available on Dec. 8 and will retail for about $400. 

Don’t get wrapped up like an AT-AT on Hoth and forget to save the day because there will only be 1,980 garments available.

No, Zemeckis isn’t revving up the DeLorean for more Marty McFly sequels — however, the director of the Back to the Future trilogy (1985-1990) and Contact(1997) is making a relatively rare return to science fiction with the two projects. This time around, however, his foray into the genre is in a producing role. On Monday, Zemeckis talked about the two projects: Bios, the upcoming feature film; and Project Blue Book, a television series that premieres in January on History.

Bios, scheduled to start filming early next year, reunites Zemeckis with one of his most celebrated collaborators. “We’re producing a really magnificent science fiction project called Bios with Tom Hanks,” Zemeckis said. “It’s a really cool science-fiction story. It’s set in a post-apocalytptic world and Tom Hanks may or may not be the last human survivor on the planet.”

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment picked Bios up in October. The script is by Craig Luck (Solo: A Star Wars Movie) and Ivor Powell (Blade Runner).

Spielberg described the movie in an October statement as “an original, emotionally stirring tale that at its core is very much an Amblin movie” and added that he could think of “no one more perfect to embody this story about the meaning of being human than Tom Hanks.”

Hanks will portray Finch, the last man on earth, who………………………………………”
