Lucasfilm celebrated Trans Day of Visibility on Thursday with the release of a comic book cover featuring a pair of Jedi twins, who are transgender and non-binary.

The cover is for a comic book set to be released on June 30.

"In honor of #TransDayofVisibility we're proud to unveil and exclusive cover highlighting Terec and Ceret, trans non-binary Jedi, currently featured in Marvel's The High Republic comic," the "Star Wars" account said. "We support trans lives and we are passionate and committed to broadening our representation in a galaxy far far away."
