Entertainment Weekly has announced that the now Random House imprint will soon publish six Little Golden Books based on the films of George Lucas’ Star Wars saga. The adaptations will arrive in stores on July 28, 2015 with a special boxed set of all six following on September 1, 2015.
“The Star Wars franchise has woven itself into the hearts and minds of generations of fans, many of whom read Little Golden Books as children,” Disney Publishing Worldwide SVP Jeanne Mosure shared. “We’re very excited to be incorporating Little Golden Books into our overarching strategy so parents can now introduce their own children to the wonders of the galaxy through this classic format.”
No creators have been named for the books but traditionally Disney’s Little Golden Books are created in house by animation staffers.
