Description

40 Years. 40 Stories.

Experience Star Wars: A New Hope from a whole new point of view.

On May 25, 1977, the world was introduced to Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, C-3PO, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, and a galaxy full of possibilities.

In honour of the fortieth anniversary, more than forty contributors lend their vision to this retelling of Star Wars. Each of the forty short stories re-imagines a moment from the original film, but through the eyes of a supporting character.

From a Certain Point of View features contributions by best-selling authors, trendsetting artists, and treasured voices from the literary history of Star Wars

  • Gary Whitta bridges the gap from Rogue One to A New Hope through the eyes of Captain Antilles.

  • Aunt Beru finds her voice in an intimate character study by Meg Cabot.

  • Nnedi Okorofor brings dignity and depth to a most unlikely character: the monster in the trash compactor.

  • Pablo Hidalgo provides a chilling glimpse inside the mind of Grand Moff Tarkin.

  • Pierce Brown chronicles Biggs Darklighter’s final flight during the Rebellion’s harrowing attack on the Death Star.

  • Wil Wheaton spins a poignant tale of the rebels left behind on Yavin.

Plus thirty-four more hilarious, heartbreaking, and astonishing tales from:
