‘Star Wars’: From A Certain Point Of View Anthology Book Announced

Del Rey has announced Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, a new anthology book that tells the untold stories of background characters from A New Hope.


To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the franchise, Del Rey has announced Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View, a new anthology book that will tell the untold stories of background characters which Lucasfilm refers to as the “unsung weirdos, heroes, and villains” from the original classic Star Wars: A New Hope.

The book will feature 40 stories told by 40 different authors presenting the background perspective of characters from A New Hope ranging from X-wing pilots in the Battle of Yavin to the stormtroopers “who never quite could find the droids they were looking for.”

You can check out the cover art below along with the full list of authors which includes Paul Dini, Chuck Wendig, EK Johnston & Ashley Eckstein as well as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Gary Whitta who teased his story #OperationBlueMilk earlier today on Twitter. More authors will also be announced closer to the book’s release.

All authors involved have forgone compensation for the proceeds to be donated directly to First Book, a nonprofit organization that helps to provide new books, learning materials, and other essentials to educators and organizations serving children in need.

In addition Penguin Random House has donated a total of $100,000 to First Book along with Disney/Lucasfilm who has also donated 100,000 children’s books — valued at 1 million dollars — to support the nonprofit.
