The Data Wars dashboard leverages iDashboards' custom software and its extensive library of charts and graphs to create visually stunning depictions of key characters from the space opera series—including old characters from the original trilogy, as well as new characters that are sure to be audience favorites. The Star Wars-inspired dashboard also offers fans a breakdown of movie release dates by decade, as well as the tentative release dates of upcoming features.
