For as long as anything that is owned by Disney exists, there will always be scope for another Fortnite tie-in. Star Wars is one of the biggest IPs that is currently being rinsed by the mobile Battle Royale. And although there’s only so much Star Wars Fortnite can draw from, there are three glaring absences from its established roster. But according to a credible leak, it’s only a matter of time before three classic characters will make their debut. 

To date there has been a smorgasbord of Star Wars Fortnite skins that players could choose from, including Rey, Boba Fett, a Stormtrooper and, most recently, Obi-Wan and Darth Vader. These are, of course, big names in the Star Wars franchise. But fans are chomping at the bit for the arrival of three more: Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. 

Luckily for them, a leak via ShiinaBR on Twitter has suggested that the three iconic Star Wars skins are in the pipeline and might appear later this year or in 2023. This information was sourced via 4Chan from a post that ShiinaBR believed to be from the same person who correctly leaked the Naruto collaboration happening later this month.

Even if you don’t trust the source, however, it really is only a matter of time before we see this particular trio make their own appearance on Fortnite. Of course, with Obi-Wan and Darth Vader being tied directly to the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney Plus series, there’s nothing we can think of on the horizon that will work as a tie-in for the characters from the original series. 

But while there’s a gap in the Star Wars calendar, Fortnite might be looking to fill the blank space with three of the core characters to help round out the Star Wars Fortnite skin roster. Either way, we’re sure they’ll go down a storm with fans – and maybe even tease a future Star Wars project we’ve yet to hear of. 

Though if you ask us, we think the content from the original movies has been well and truly rinsed. Bring on the new era of Star Wars.
