A Reintroduction to Star Wars

Many of us are excited to see Episode VII of Star Wars finally coming to the big screen.  Disney, the new owner of the franchise, is making it as easy as possible for people unfamiliar with it to jump on board and especially for old fans who may have been underwhelmed with the prequels or just moved on to other interests to find their way back.  A new cartoon called Star Wars Rebels will air on Disney XD, a new book called Star Wars: A New Dawn will relaunch the print universe, and a wonderful trio of guides provides diehards and novices alike with a terrific background of the themes in the films.  The Jedi Path, Book of Sith, and The Bounty Hunter Code are hardcover, illustrated tomes full of fun, addictive information.  They're annotated with comments from Star Wars characters, such as Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, Yoda, etc.

All three are published by Chronicle Books.
