Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens Program Announced
ANNOUNCING A NEW SERIES OF BOOKS AND COMICS THAT WILL LEAD INTO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS!
Star Wars fans will soon uncover some major secrets — without the need for Bothan spies.
Disney Publishing Worldwide and Lucasfilm announced today an ambitious publishing programming, “Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which will lead into the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, coming December 18. Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, kicking off this fall, is planned to include more than 20 titles available in print and digital, and will feature new narrative stories for middle grade and young adults as well as comics, illustrated reference, Look and Find, and sticker book formats. Stories are set to star characters old and new, and retell classic Star Wars tales from new perspectives.
“We are thrilled to be developing content for fans of this epic saga across the globe,” said Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “The robust publishing program will appeal to a range of fans — old and new — across all formats from comics to novels to apps, making this one of the most exciting and collaborative collection of stories that we’ve seen to date.“
All titles published under Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be canonical within the Star Wars universe, and in-continuity with the Star Warsfilms, animated series, new books, and Marvel comics. The global program comes as a result of a massive collaboration between Disney-Lucasfilm and its publishing partners, including Del Rey, DK, Egmont UK, Marvel, Phoenix International Publications, Inc., Studio Fun International, and Topps.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is almost here, and the journey to it looks to be amazing.
