The Official Star Wars 20th Anniversary Commemorative Magazine was published by Topps in February 1997. The magazine explores the first two decades of the Star Wars franchise as well as the 1997 theatrical release of The Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition.

In addition to the original newsstand edition, Topps published two variant covers of the magazine in the United States, one with gold lettering and one with blue lettering. These variants included bonus coverage of The Star Wars Trilogy Special Edition and came packaged with three collector cards.

Titan Magazines published a UK version of the magazine in March 1997 under the title The Official Star Wars 20th Anniversary Commemorative Souvenir.
