Going Rogue

In case you hadn’t heard (ha…yeah right!), another chapter in the Star Wars saga will be revealed in theaters tomorrow…

Though not an “official” episode (the ones featuring the iconic Roman numerals), this Star Wars story will fill in some of the gaps between Episodes III & IV.  As always, it looks to be a great mix of action, adventure, character drama, and mystery.  Rumors of a Darth Vader sighting also abound.

Suffice it to say, any Star Wars movie will premiere to much hype, which translates into great opportunities for literature branding.  I know I may harp on this concept, but I always think of “that one child” who may be introduced to the process & joys of reading via a Star Wars title.

So, here are some books specifically related to the new “Rogue One” film…
