Happy Wednesday everyone!
The folks over at MakingStarWars.net have compiled a list of titles for the first wave of books coming out this fall before the release of Episode VII. These are all Junior novels and each seems to feature one of the main characters except one that looks like a story with 2 new characters covering the whole time line of the first 6 movies. Here’s the info so far:
- #1: Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo Adventure (formerly: Journey to Episode VII: Han Solo), Hardcover, Disney Lucasfilm Press, $12.99, 9781484724958 (age group 8 to 12)
- #2: The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure (formerly: Journey to Episode VII: Luke Skywalker), Hardcover, Disney Lucasfilm Press, $12.99 USD, 9781484724965, (age group 8 to 12)
- #3: Moving Target: A Princess Leia Adventure (previously titled Journey to Episode VII: Princess Leia), Hardcover, Disney Lucasfilm Press, $12.99, 9781484724972 (age group 8 to 12)
- #4: Lost Stars (formerly: Journey to Episode VII: The Fall of the Empire/The Rise of the Rebellion), likely to be written by Claudia Gray, Hardcover, Disney Lucasfilm Press, $17.99, 9781484724989 (age group 10 to 14), plot details available here
Most exciting for me is that they also found a listing here that shows a Novel will be released on September 1st, 2015 which it says is being done by Steve Perry who has written, and helped write, several Star Wars books in the past. There has been some clues of another novel releasing just after the new year which will very likely tie directly in to Episode VII (I would think). Also in the above article is an outline of what is believed to be the schedule for book releases surrounding Episode VII including art books, children’s books and more.
Very exciting news for me as a huge fan of Star Wars literature, I can’t wait!
