With new games, shows, and movies all on the way, watch out for Star Wars! The series is back in a different format. Disney recently announced that the entire saga is launching a new series of Little Golden Books for kids.
The Star Wars Little Golden Books will soon join the iconic series of children's books that have been around since the 40's. Each book is designed to capture a single movie in the six-film saga, and will feature writing and artwork from different creative teams as well as those gold spines we all grew up with.
The Star Wars franchise has woven itself into the hearts and minds of generations of fans, many of whom read Little Golden Books as children," said Jeanne Mosure of Disney Publishing Worldwide in the official release: We’re very excited to be incorporating Little Golden Books into our overarching strategy so parents can now introduce their own children to the wonders of the galaxy through this classic format.
Entertainment Weekly debuted the covers for all six books — adaptations of The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. They all have that signature golden spine, but instead of the classic decorations of filigree, flowers, bees, vines and the like, these spins have little icons of Star Wars characters. How cool is that! The books became available on July 28th, with a complete boxed set being released on September 1st.
