More on Star Wars

Titan Books have announced to the follow-up to their bestselling Jedi Path, Daniel Wallace’s Star Wars © – Book of Sith: Secrets of the Dark Side. It will be published as a hardback edition on April 17th 2013 with an RRP of £12.99. From the press release…

Compiled by Darth Sidious, the book contains annotations from its subsequent ‘owners’: Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. After The Jedi Path, this is only the second time ever a Star Wars book has been treated as an actual artefact that originated in the Star Wars universe!

The Sith have existed in the galaxy for centuries, lurking, waiting for their chance to seize control. In his quest for domination, Darth Sidious tracked down five pivotal Sith texts written by his most powerful predecessors… Then, drawing on the knowledge within the compiled pages, he wrote a sixth text – his own manifesto. Together, these documents shed light on the philosophy, achievements, and failures of the Sith Order. These collected documents form the Book of Sith.

Star Wars – Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side is full of breath-taking illustrations from top Star Wars artists, including Terryl Whitlach.

Daniel Wallace is a comic book expert, sci-fi sage, lifelong geek, and author/co-author of books including The Jedi Path, The Art of Superman Returns, DC Comics Year by Year and the New York Times bestselling Star Wars: The New Essential Guide to Characters.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
