The countdown to "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" is officially on, as the film is set to premiere on December 20. But that still feels like a long time to go (in a galaxy far, far away).

Le Creuset is making the waiting period a little more bearable by releasing a "Star Wars" collection, combining iconic characters and objects from George Lucas' universe with its kitchen gear.

The Star Wars x Le Creuset Collection will launch exclusively at select Le Creuset boutique stores, at the online Le Creuset store, and at Yuppiechef on November 1st.

Available for purchase, the line includes novelty products that fans of the series will immediately recognize, like this Han Solo Carbonite Signature Roaster (available in South Africa for R6,550) inspired by "Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back." Harrison Ford himself might be impressed by the likeness.

Han Solo frozen in carbonite is embossed on the roaster.

If the roaster is out of your price range or just a little too difficult for you to look at daily, you may be more interested in the robot Mini Cocottes (R435 each), which you can use for cooking smaller dishes. R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8 each have a unique design.

But fans of the dark side can enjoy some kitchen fun, too.

The Darth Vader Round casserole (R5,750) and Death Star Trivet (R290) are both fit for a Sith Lord.

Darth Vader is embossed on this Dutch Oven.

There's also a Millenium Falcon Trivet (R290), which you can see below next to the Death Star Trivet.

These trivets contain the intricate designs of the "Star Wars" spaceships.

But only a select few superfans will be able to purchase the Tatooine Round Dutch Oven (R14,000), inspired by the desert island of the same name that's famous in the "Star Wars" universe. Only nine Tatooine casseroles have been created worldwide, but you can sign up for a chance to purchase one here on Le Creuset's website.
