'The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight' Book Trailer

By: Dominic Jones

Lucasfilm has released a special book trailer/behind the scenes featurette for the upcoming children's picture book The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight.  The book is written by author Toni DiTerlizzi and tells the story of the original trilogy, using the legendary artwork of Ralph McQuarrie. The video features DiTerlizzi discussing his process for creating the book, as well as his excitement about working on the project.  Check out the video below,


I must say, this book looks great.   DiTerlizzi seems like an excellent choice to write it and of course it is wonderful to see the works of Ralph McQuarrie being introduced to the next generation.  I'm hoping that we'll also be seeing a prequel version of this book, featuring the great artwork of Doug Chiang, Ian McCaig, and others.  Even though this is targeted at younger readers, I will definitely be picking up a copy for myself!
