Star Wars:The Last Jedi novelizations offer deeper insights on epic events
Out in hardback on March 6, the adult novelization of Star Wars: The Last Jedi promises an even deeper look at all the characters, twists, and world-building that shapes the most recent episode of the Skywalker space saga. Tying in with the release date of The Last Jedi on Blu-ray and digital, the novel provides an ideal chance to contrast and compare the two different story formats.
The author is Jason Fry, whose Star Wars credits include fl eshing out lesserknown characters in the epic Servants of the Empire junior novels and also the meticulously researched interstellar interiors from The Last Jedi: Incredible Cross-Sections. Yet, despite his rock-solid resume, Fry still felt some trepidation when taking on the task of adapting the movie.
“The Last Jedi has three primary plot threads, with each locked off from the others until the climax,” Fry explains. “I needed to juggle all those disparate narratives, and still find the room to effectively explore the new characters such as Rose Tico and Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo.”
Debuting alongside the the adult offering on March 6 is the junior novelization of The Last Jedi, penned by Michael Kogge. Like the other book, this version also contains extra content not seen in the theatrical release, adding more depth to an already fantastic story. Aside from being written in kid-friendly prose, young readers are sure to enjoy the eight pages of full-color photos from the film.
