In fact, this whole month is special because it marks the 40th anniversary of the premiere of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Yep, it was May 25, 1977. The day that introduced Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Death Star, the Millennium Falcon, C3PIO and R2-D2 to the world.
And the world has been a lot more fun ever since.
Anyway, I'll talk more about it this month. I hope to recommend a few books to you, ask which one of the movies is your favorite, etc. etc. But, for today, let me show a few things that I've liked, along with links to the original reviews:
Star Wars: The Original Trilogy
The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight
Very good retellings of the original trilogy and good reminders why we love this story so much
Star Wars The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary
Oh, yeah! The saga continues! This is the book for anyone who enjoyed this movie. Lots of photos, lots of cool information and a good introduction that gives you the backstory to this movie.
Plus, the library system has copies of all the movies. And lots of SW graphic novels. Even audiobooks! So head on down to your library and pick one up!
