At a lot of junior chess clubs I see different chess sets including Marvel sets, Harry Potter sets, and Star Wars sets. The Star Wars set is quite popular with the kids (and a special treat for the best behaved), but know I have read about an even better Star Wars set.
Instead of using the characters from the movies, this set is model on the holographic set that was shown in the original movie. If I read it right, the set will use VR technology to make it appear as it did in the movie, with PvP supported so you can play opponents over the net.
At this stage the project is looking for some kickstarter scratch, and has around a month to raise the remaining $85,000 to make it a (virtual) reality.
