Star Wars: Aftermath Novel Announced

As part of the multimedia Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens campaign, Del Rey will be publishing Star Wars: Aftermath, a novel written by Chuck Wendig. This will be the first book in a trilogy of novels that the official Star Wars website describes as a story that will bridge the gap between Return of the Jedi and upcoming The Force Awakens. This first book will be released September 4th according to its Amazon.com listing.

The Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens campaign will include other books for younger readers and new comic book series from Marvel. The aim of this program is get fans of all ages up to speed with the new canon and fill in all the holes between the destruction of the second Death Star and the point we find ourselves in the Star Wars film in December.

As a near life long Star Wars fan, this is really an exciting time. Overall I've approved of the way this franchise has been  handled after the Disney purchase of Lucasfilm. It gives me a lot of hope that Star Wars fans have some exciting content coming our way.
