The saga continues!

The Star Wars franchise plans to add more to their array of movies, books and games with a new series of comics and books. On May 4th — a day also known as Star Wars Day — Lucasfilm announced the release of a Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker series. The series will lead into the upcoming movie, ‘The Rise of Skywalker.’

The new series features books for fans of all ages. Two of the most notable are an adult novel titled Resistance Reborn and another novel called Force Collector. The latter will be a young adult novel set before ‘The Force Awakens.’ In this novel, a young teenager strives to discover how his force powers are connected to the legend of the Jedi and their abilities.

For Star Wars fans, this is a big announcement. The movie will be here in the blink of an eye. Until then, it is time to enjoy the many comics, books, and more leading up to the film. It is well worth it.
