New Books To Bridge Gap to The Force Awakens

star-wars-craniodsgn_612x380We are ALL anxiously awaiting the release of The Force Awakens in December. Now, EW is reporting we will have something to fill our time – BOOKS!!! Everything from novels to storybooks to stickerbooks for the short people!! At least 20 books will fill the gap between Return of the Jedi  and the coming film. Disney Worldwide Publishing and Lucasfilm Press have confirmed that the titles will be filled with Easter eggs foreshadowing events in J.J. Abrams’ film – SO PAY ATTENTION! After Lucasfilm announced existing novels, games, comics and stories of the “Expanded Universe” of Star Wars were being discarded from the official storyline – the doors were open. The coming books will span multiple publishers and will be known as Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and will be the ‘official canon’. The executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide Andrew Sugerman said:

“The Force Awakens is an extraordinarily, heavily guarded storyline. To track it, a lot of top-secret meetings were happening up in San Francisco as we worked through this program.”

Stay tuned, kids…
