Minor Spoiler Warning: The following article contains some plot details from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
With Star Wars: The Last Jedi in its third week in theaters, audiences continue to revisit one of the most polarizing entries in the Skywalker saga. Although fans’ reaction to the film have varied from both ends of the critical spectrum, for the most part, fans are still enthralled by the visual storytelling that director Rian Johnson brought to Episode VIII.
With plenty of tie-in books out and soon to be released in stores everywhere, some of those books further explore the characters in different stories or retell the film’s plot through the use of screenshots from the official film along with some text recapping the events that took place.
One of the upcoming tie-in books will be a special storybook courtesy of Disney Storybook Collectors. The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Storybook is described as an illustrated picture book that retells the story of the film. Thanks to Amazon, the official cover for the storybook has been revealed.
The cover is an illustration inspired by the climactic scene towards the end of the film where we see the Luke Skywalker’s Force Projection of himself as Kylo Ren last trained with him to become a Jedi before the latter’s inevitable turn to the Dark Side. The cover features Luke brandishing the Lightsaber he lost along with his hand in Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back as he prepares to face off against his nephew one last time.
The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Movie Storybook will be available in a hardcover edition and will be released in stores on March 6, 2018. The book can be pre-ordered now through Amazon. You can check out the cover there.
