The Minecraft building community has already got to work on recreating Tolkein's Middle-earth (opens in new tab), the complete Breath of the Wild map (opens in new tab), Doom, Half-Life, The Witcher (opens in new tab), and Stardew Valley (opens in new tab) so it was only a matter of time before the players cast their eyes on Star Wars as the next building frontier.

Uploading screenshots of their work to Reddit, Vistachess (opens in new tab) has begun work on building the entire galaxy from Star Wars as a one-person team. It's a ridiculous goal, but progress seems to be going well, with the desert planet Tatooine and the city-covered planet Coruscant having already been built. 

From the look of the screenshots, both look fantastic. Vistachess says it's taken them a year to build Tatooine and Coruscant, so don't expect the entire build to be done any time soon. Hopefully, we'll be able to see the likes of Hoth, Naboo, and Endor in the coming months.

If you wanted to follow their progress planet by planet, you can check out their build videos on their YouTube channel (opens in new tab) and Reddit posts (opens in new tab). For now, here are some more screenshots of the build:

Rachel had been bouncing around different gaming websites as a freelancer and staff writer for three years before settling at PC Gamer back in 2019. She mainly writes reviews, previews, and features, but on rare occasions will switch it up with news and guides. When she's not taking hundreds of screenshots of the latest indie darling, you can find her nurturing her parsnip empire in Stardew Valley and planning an axolotl uprising in Minecraft. She loves 'stop and smell the roses' games—her proudest gaming moment being the one time she kept her virtual potted plants alive for over a year.
