In celebration of Star Wars Day, StarWars.com is thrilled to reveal “Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” a series of books and comics connected to the highly-anticipated movie.
“The Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker publishing program is our biggest and boldest film tie-in program yet,” Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm’s creative director of publishing, tells StarWars.com. “We’ve got exceptionally talented authors, artists, and publishers creating content for fans of all ages.
“While these titles will include some hints and Easter eggs for the new film, the majority of these titles will feature all-new stories set following the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Our ‘Journey to’ books and comics will star Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose, and, of course, Leia, Chewie, the droids, and the First Order.
“Here, you’ll get a glimpse at both the state of the galaxy and some of the ongoing battles between the Resistance and the First Order.
“As fans prepare for The Rise of Skywalker and the epic conclusion to the Skywalker saga, these stories are not to be missed.”
