New 'The Secrets Of The Jedi' Book Announced

By: Benjamin Hart

If you're into Star Wars and reading then there seems to be no shortage of material at your disposable these days. To further that prove that point, Lucasfilm announced today that a new book delving into the the Jedi Order is coming later this year.

The Star Wars Show has revealed Star Wars: The Secrets of the Jedi, a brand new book by Marc Sumerak that details the history of the Jedi Order, as told my Luke Skywalker himself. This book is filled to the brim with stunning artwork, fascinating info, and an assortment of interactive features, including a pop-up Holocron, Jedi equipment booklet, a translator card, and more.

According to author Marc Sumerak, the Luke Skywalker that will narrate this book is the older, more cynical Luke that we see at the beginning of The Last Jedi. Because of this, the book itself has a unique perspective on the deep mythology of the Jedi:

“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.” provided some peeks at the cover art and several pages from The Secrets Of The Jedi, which you can check out below:

Star Wars: The Secrets Of The Jedi will hit bookshelves everywhere on November 19th, and is available for pre-order right now!
