Inside The New Essential Chronology
Finally, the missing pieces from Star Wars history are in place. Episode III completes the cinematic Star Wars saga, the details of the Clone Wars are known, and the events of the The New Jedi Order epic have reached their dramatic conclusion. Now readers can finally view the entirety of Star Wars lore, and the forthcoming Star Wars: The New Essential Chronolgy makes it all possible.
Written by Star Wars authority Daniel Wallace, with Kevin J. Anderson, this newly expanded, full-color Chronology spans thousands of years of events, from the darkest days of the earliest Sith empires to the final moments of the Yuuzhan Vong crisis. Many holes have since been filled since the publication of the first edition years ago, and this updated Chronology represents the perfect starting point for someone wanting to explore the full, rich history of Star Wars galaxy. It’s also essential for avid readers who want to witness how the events connect and affect one another, and to find out what transpired between the books, comics, and videogames they already know.
This is not just an update. It’s a completely new book, now presented in full color with stunning new illustrations by Mark Chiarello, John Van Fleet, and Tommy Lee Edwards. For the first time, this Essential Guide will be available as a hardcover, as well as trade paperback, for those who want to preserve this key moment in Star Wars history. And the new Chronology will set the stage for the future of the Star Wars universe. Before the new Legacy era begins to chronicle the events yet to come, or the Dark Times fill in the moments of the past, immerse yourself in The New Essential Chronology and emerge fully versed in ever-growing, ever-intricate tapestry that is the expanded universe.
Star Wars: The New Essential Chronology is due out on October 25 from Del Rey Books.
