Star Wars inspires newspaper for Russian invasion splash

Film franchise Star Wars provided inspiration for a newspaper’s splash on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Herald on Sunday referenced the sci-fi series yesterday, running with the headline ‘Tsar Wars’.

The Glasgow-based paper depicted the world as a bomb that is set to explode on its front page, warning the war marks “the end of the world as we knew it”.

Regional press titles have continued to show their support for under-fire Ukrainians in recent days, with a number of titles making use of Ukraine’s blue and yellow national colours on their fronts.
