Announced today at New York Comic Con, during the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel, Strange Matter’s George Mann will be writing a new book of spooky myths and legends set in the Star Wars universe, to be published by Disney Lucasfilm Press in 2020.
The book, Star Wars: Dark Legends, follows George’s successful Star Wars: Myths & Fables. Published in July 2019, Myths & Legends featured an array of in-universe folklore and fairy tales that showcased George’s talent in expanding the mythology of established franchises, one of the key services Strange Matter can supply in any of its projects.
You can read more about the announcement, as well as an array of other exciting Star Wars projects (including some from Strange Matter’s Cavan Scott) on the official Star Wars website.
October sees Strange Matter‘s Cavan Scott jump back to a Galaxy, Far, Far Away not once but three times.
The month kicks off with the publication of the Star Wars Dooku: Jedi Lostscript book, featuring the script for the six-hour Star Wars full-cast audio play that was published by Del Rey / Penguin Random House Audio earlier this year.
Then, the fourth in Cavan’s Star Wars Choose Your Destiny series is released October 4th by Disney Lucasfilm Press. Part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, A Finn & Poe is an interactive gamebook featuring characters from the must anticipated movie.
Finally, every Wednesday in October will see IDW publish Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Castle, a five-issue weekly mini-series that tells spooky stories in the Star Wars universe, perfect for Halloween. Following the success of last year’s award nominated Tales From Vader’s Castle, the series sees Cavan team up with artists Francesco Francavilla, Megan Leven, Kelley Jones, Nick Brokenshire, Nicoletta Baldari and Charles Paul Wilson III.
These releases are just part of Cavan’s extensive contribution to Star Wars, a relationship that will only grow with his involvement in Lucasfilm’s top secret Project: Luminous initiative.
