The Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Books Available for Pre-Order

Posted by on Apr 11, 2015 in books, Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

We were pretty excited to hear that there were going to be at least 20 new Star Wars books, ranging from novels to sticker books, coming out this fall. And now they’re here—the first pre-orders are available! Not all of the books have been announced yet, but it’s clear that Disney is placing a heavy emphasis on filling fans in on what happened between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. In addition to the Marvel comic series we discussed earlier, Shattered Empire, we can now see a few more titles. Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath presents an intriguing cover, with “The war is not over” emblazoned on the cover. Looks like Disney’s rewriting the canon quite a bit (we had some idea that this was the case when we saw Stormtroopers in the trailer, but this lends even more credence to the idea). The book’s description also contains the line “And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a...

Could a Star Wars: Battlefront Novel Be in the works?

Posted by on Mar 29, 2015 in books, Star Wars: Battlefront | 0 comments

The new paperback version of A New Dawn is on the verge of publication and it features a official timeline. This timeline gives you information about different types of media surrounding the Star Wars saga. There is an interesting note in this that shows a new novel is in development in addition to Aftermath and Dark Disciple. Many will think that the Battlefront title is only referring to the upcoming video game, you should know that television shows are only listed as television shows and movies are listed separately. Based on these terms, a conclusion has been drawn that a video game should be listed under its own separate banner as well, but this is not labeled as such. There is no definite answer yet, but we think a new novel is sure to come. Image via Star Wars Books...

Star Wars introduces its first LGBT character to canon

Posted by on Mar 13, 2015 in books | 0 comments

Star Wars is introducing a new character, Moff Mors, and she is a lesbian. In Paul S. Kemp’s upcoming Star Wars: Lords of the Sith novel, Moff Mors is the first LGBT character that will officially be introduced in Star Wars when the book is released in April. The editor at Star Wars book publisher, Shelly Shapiro, has confirmed the news of the character and her sexuality during an interview on Big Shiny Robot’s “Full of Sith,” podcast. She is being described as a fully capable Imperial leader and spends most of her time trying to prevent failure. Shapiro has stated that Mors will be the first official LGBT character in Star Wars but there have been gay characters in other median set in space. One example is in Karen Traviss’ Legacy of the Force books; Mandalorians, Goran Beviin and Medrit Vasur were married in one of the novels. Star Wars has not done a great job for recognizing the LGBT community so far, and any hint of a homosexual relationship that are present in the games and...

At Least 20 New Star Wars Books in the Works

Posted by on Mar 12, 2015 in books | 0 comments

Entertainment Weekly just shared some big news: Disney will be publishing at least 20 new books that will fill the 32-year gap between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The books will come in many formats: novels, storybooks, and sticker books have been mentioned (we can only hope for graphic novels). The series will be called Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The books will detail the adventures of Han, Luke, Leia, and Chewie leading up to the forthcoming film, and will contain a number of elements that foreshadow events to come. A number of different publishers will be involved, including Disney itself, DK, Marvel, and Del Rey. We don’t know what will be contained in these books, or who the authors are, but they’re sure to bring some surprises, especially with how closely the plot of The Force Awakens has been guarded. There’s no listing of the books planned or potential release dates yet, but we’re very much looking forward to finding out...
