    Impressive. Most impressive

    Those “Journey to Episode VII” books have me very exited! That is exactly what I want, books that explain some of the backstory for how the original characters got to where they are in TFA.
    “The Fall of the Empire / The Rise of the rebellion” is especially interesting as it suggests (if that is the final title) that it is still called the “Rebellion” after the fall of the Empire, at least for awhile.
    I always figured it would become known as The Alliance if it became the dominant government rather than The New Republic.

    • November 12, 2014 at 4:05 pm

      Quick off-topic.
      Do you still have the “you’re posting too fast” issue? We’ve made some changes.

      • November 12, 2014 at 4:29 pm

        I didn’t have trouble with that one.
        Or this one.

        But I do tend to accidentally hit the Like button when I hit edit or save even though the cursor is over the edit button.

        • November 12, 2014 at 6:38 pm

          Same EXACT thing happens to me.
          Including the “posting too fast” nonsense.
          At first, I thought it was VH subtlely banning me
          when none of my messages got through. lol
          Now I see it’s not just me that this is happening to.

          • November 13, 2014 at 12:03 am

            Do you still have this issue or it was before?

    • November 12, 2014 at 4:35 pm

      Possibly neither govern outright, so the Galactic Civil War rages on and the core elements of both factions remain the same, except that both have lost their figureheads: Palpatine, Vader, and Luke. It also allows for the film to appeal strongly to the nostalgic status quo of the OT. The Force Awakens, aka The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same.

    • November 13, 2014 at 1:17 am

      You can be sure a handful of ‘notable’ authors are currently hard at work on new novels set between the OT and ST. Notable as in prior EU talent. That’s another announcement though.

  • November 12, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    Or maybe this rebellion is now the remains of the falling empire, facing the Alliance…

    • November 12, 2014 at 4:33 pm

      Oooo. Good point!

  • November 12, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    Release date?

    • November 12, 2014 at 4:34 pm

      The release dates are there in the descriptions.

      • November 12, 2014 at 6:07 pm

        Woops, didn’t read that correctly… Hmm I remember back when TPM hit, getting a picture book some months in advance, still have it somewhere.

  • November 12, 2014 at 4:16 pm

    Being a lover of all things AT-AT, title number two is interesting. But the big fish is of course the title Journey to Episode VII. If only we had a copy right now. Heck, I’d settle for the dust jacket and a couple of pages…

  • November 12, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Hope that Dorling Kindersley still retain their publishing licence … their Visual Dictionaries and Cross-section books are amazing and define SW film tie-in literature to me.

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:13 pm

    So don’t expect the Journey to Episode 7 novels to be deep intense politically engaging stories. they are middle-grade books which is targeted to 8-12 year olds. So we are probably going to get a much lighter version of a New Hope.

    • November 13, 2014 at 6:26 am

      I have never known an 8 year old who went to middle school.

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:16 pm

    I could be reading too much into things, but the fact that Han and Leia have separate books might be very telling about whether or not they are together. If they are together the whole time, then the books would be very redundant, but not totally redundant. I might be reading too much into that.

    • November 12, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      Nah. I think you’re right. Their relationship needs to be dysfunctional anyway. If they were all lovey dovey, it would be boring and dumb.

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    No pictures, it didn’t happen.

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    cool… very cool

  • November 12, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    Bear in mind these descriptions are not a solid basis for judging the books. The reference to the Rebellion could easily be a marketing decision to tie the book in with OT, but has less to do with what the inside says. I’m not reading into the exact wording too much.
    It’s kinda funny they’re doing an AT-AT book, considering where Daisy’s character lives (ALLEGEDLY). I guess they had a lot of details on the inside they wanna’ show off. The fact that Han and Leia have two separate books is kinda’ interesting too.

  • November 12, 2014 at 6:05 pm

    NOOO not Troy Denning he sucks ,Crucible was garbage !!

  • November 12, 2014 at 6:10 pm

    Also the only thing i care about will Matthew Stover write the VII novel.IF NOT fail !! His EP III Novel is a master piece.

  • November 12, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Way ta water down the brand, Disney ….

  • November 12, 2014 at 7:10 pm

    I get the feeling that the ISBNs are real, but some of the titles (like The Duelist) and authors are holdovers from the old publishing schedule and not necessarily represent the actual books. The Duelist by Golden most likely refers to the canceled Sword of the Jedi trilogy, and the Roundtable Trilogy probably refers to the canceled FotJ followup. Those books are likely just placeholders for books in the new canon, possibly with different authors.

  • November 12, 2014 at 7:17 pm

    I hope the Force doesn’t awaken with bad morning breath.

  • November 12, 2014 at 7:31 pm

    The Force Awakens to rake in cash for Disney
    after the failure of John Carter.

    Will there be a concept art book?
    Only thing I’d be interested in buying.

  • November 12, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    your preachin to the choir anonymous!

  • November 12, 2014 at 9:35 pm

    So many new books being released in USA, but here in Brazil is such a rare thing to happen ;-;.

  • November 12, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    Big deal man, cause they are just kids books. How can I read a kids book when I’m used to reading Game of thrones style of intelligent reading.

    • November 12, 2014 at 11:54 pm


  • November 12, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    Rebels suck.

  • November 12, 2014 at 11:43 pm

    The Roubd Table book sounds super cool (I’m a Medieval/Arthurian Legends nut), as do the other books (especially the young adult Star Wars novel). 🙂

  • November 12, 2014 at 11:49 pm

    All they have to do is keep mentioning/posting the title and it’ll eventually grow on you.

  • November 12, 2014 at 11:53 pm

    [Spoiler Caution]

    There were rebels on one side in the original trilogy.
    There are rebels on the other side in the sequel trilogy.

  • November 13, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    INTERESTING that she is still called: “PRINCESS LEIA” ! of course she can not be Queen over a dead planet, but many have speculated that she would be supreme chancellor or something like that, but i guess that a possible new title will not be revealed until we see the movie… 🙂
