This May the Fourth, be sure to get your copy of the new junior novelizations of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of The Jedi, and The Force Awakens. After reading details from Jedi-Bibliothek’s article, it is believed these new novels will be the current canon versions of the films.
They are published by Danish company Egmont. Official listings of the books can be found here: ANH, TESB, ROTJ, TFA. It appears the only novelizations will be of all those four films. No plans to adapt the prequels or Rogue One as of now. Check out the simplistic, yet incredibly awesome covers below:
You can pre-order these books on Amazon right now before they’re released on May the Fourth. You can also find these books listed on other bookstore websites, but we’ll have to wait and see if they will be released in US stores. Surely, they will. If so, they will definitely find a place on my bookshelf!
Will you be buying these books? One can only hope they will also do the same for the rest of the films.
Here’s to hoping!
