Fresh Interpretations of the Original Trilogy Coming in September
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….
That’s how it all started. And it will soon continue. With the world anxiously awaiting the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens this holiday season, Disney-Lucasfilm Press has decided to revise the saga for a whole new generation of readers. In a new series coming September 22, fans will experience the original trilogy in an entirely different way, with Star Wars: A New Hope — The Princess, The Scoundrel, and The Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken (the Darkest Minds series), Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back — So You Want to Be a Jediby Adam Gidwitz (A Tale Dark & Grimm series), and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi — Beware the Power of the Dark Side! by Tom Angleberger (the Origami Yodaseries).
But these are more than just mere retellings from this top talent; these are fresh interpretations — true to the films but filtered through each author’s vision. In each novel, the authors get inside the characters’ heads, tell us about the scenes between the scenes, and even teach us how to be a Jedi.
