in Entertainment, Star Wars

Since its very early days, the “Star Wars” franchise has always been about much more than movies. The first “Expanded Universe” tie-in novel “Splinter of the Mind’s Eye” debuted in 1978, and since then there have been countless installments in books, comics, video games, and television series, each fleshing out the larger Star Wars Universe in its own unique way.

At Star Wars Celebration 2017, back in April, Lucasfilm partner Del Rey Publishing announced a very special new release coming this fall– “Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View,” a celebration of the saga’s 40th anniversary that chronicles the tales of forty different supporting and background characters via a collection of short stories.

Today on Twitter, Del Rey and its authors participated in the hashtag #FromACertainPOV, revealing details about what fans can expect from many of the individual narratives for within the new book. I’ve collected thirteen of the tweets below.

As you can see, we’ll be getting some very exciting new information out of “From a Certain Point of View,” including a story that fills in the brief gap between last year’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and the original “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.” We’ll also read about infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, newly-created comics character archaeologist Doctor Aphra, and even the speedy little Mouse Droid from the Death Star, and find out what they were all up to during the events of the first movie.

“Star Wars: From a Certain Point a View” will be available from retailers starting Tuesday, October 3rd.
