These new stamps will certainly help prevent you from putting a Rogue One in the post.

The special edition set of Star Wars stamps are set to be released to mark the latest movie in the sci-fi series.

Maz Kanata, Chewbacca, Supreme Leader Snoke, R2-D2 and C-3PO are among those that will appear on the collection.

The new release follows another set that were issued in 2015 to mark the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The set of eight, illustrated by artist Malcolm Tween, will be released to commemorate the upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which launches in December.

They will feature images of new and classic characters alongside spaceships from the films in specially-created scenes, Royal Mail has said.

Four of the stamps will have details in fluorescent ink that will only be visible under a UV light.

The stamps will be on sale from October 12.
