In a move that is probably going to piss off purists, but also bring a new generation closer to the story, Disney has just announced that they’ll be taking another crack at the original trilogy by way of a new set of novels that tells the stories from different characters’ perspectives.
The three books are:
– Star Wars: A New Hope — The Princess, The Scoundrel, and the Farm Boy by Alexandra Bracken
– Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back — So You Want to Be a Jedi by Adam Gidwitz
– Star Wars: Return of the Jedi — Beware the Power of the Dark Side! by Tom Angleberger.
The three books are all set to hit amazon and bookstores on September 22.
