We really like this inforgraphic by Ellie Koning, not just for the brilliant design but for its originality. Rather than opting to use famous quotes, pictures and sayings, Koning has found a selection of less well-known facts about the films.

So not only is it a visual feast for the eyes, it's also very informative and, er, surprising in places. Did you know that voice of Yoda Frank Oz is also the voice behind Miss Piggy? Silly us, of course you did!

Joe Stone uses minimalist icons for each character and different coloured lines to indicate their relationships

This brilliant Star Wars family tree infographic was created by designer and illustrator Joe Stone. He comments online: "As a huge Star Wars fan, I had to make this family tree.

"Limiting the characters purely to the film and canonical TV series, I went about creating a minimalist icon for each each major character before laying them out with lines higlighting their various relationships to one another, whether that be romance, a significant battle or otherwise." Awesome.
