from Delilah S. Dawson’s twitter:

THE SKYWALKER SAGA is going to be the most exquisitely bound Star Wars storybook you can imagine, with gorgeous art by Brian Rood and words by me, retelling Episodes I through VIII through the eyes of the Skywalkers themselves. We’re talking SPACE FAIRYTALE style.

Writing this book was a revelation for me as a lifelong Star Wars fan. Watching the movies in order– closely and critically– on repeat– and seeing the themes, choices, words, and destinies of Anakin, Luke, Leia, Ben, and Rey ripple down… y’all, I cried. A lot.
