There’s a new Star Wars book coming out that I think a lot of fans are going to be interested in reading. It’s called Star Wars: Secrets of the Jedi and it will dive into and explore the Jedi Order as told by Luke Skywalker.
The book, which will chronicle the history of the Jedi, comes from author Marc Sumerak, who had this to say about being able to work on a book like this:
“It’s always a great pleasure to get to return to a galaxy far, far away for another project, but having the chance to explore the path of the fabled Jedi Order through Luke’s eyes was an honor like none I’ve ever had before. The Skywalker saga has always been such a crucial piece of my own personal pop culture landscape over the years, so being able to write this book in the words of Luke himself was a dream come true.”
The book will incorporate lore from Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the Star Wars films, and beyond. it will also see Luke Skywalker address the “Force Priestesses (from The Clone Wars) and other iconic Jedi like Qui-Gon Jinn.” That in itself is sure to intrigue fans. Sumerak goes on to talk about what he was looking to do with the book, saying:
“One of the greatest challenges with a book like this is to find a way to bring all of the vital information together in a way that feels fresh and new. For this particular project, I think that unique perspective flows naturally from our beloved narrator, Luke Skywalker. Sure, we all know his epic story by heart, but the Luke who is writing this particular tome is a long way from the optimistic farmboy he was when his journey began. Because of that, he’s able to look past the glorified stories of the Jedi of old to find the truth about the Order, no matter how difficult it may be for those reading to hear. So with that in mind, we were able to examine the different aspects of the Jedi Order from an angle that cut through the ancient legends, allowing us to examine why the Jedi needed to exist, why they were destined to end, and whether or not they could — or should — rise again.”
Star Wars: The Secrets of the Jedi will be released on November 19th and is available for pre-order now. The book comes with “lush paintings and special interactive features, including a pop-up holocron, a translator card, a Jedi equipment booklet, and more.”
