Warning: This review may contain minor spoilers.
How excited were you for this book? I mean really. I remember when this book was first announced. It was last October at New York Comic Con. Believe it or not the book wasn’t announced to much fanfare. Not because fans weren’t excited for it, but because there were hardly any fans there to hear the announcement. The Star Wars Books panel was being held in the lower level of the convention center in an open area. There was an awesome panel of Star Wars authors including Tim Zahn, Jason Fry, Pablo Hidalgo, and Dan Wallace but there just weren’t many fans there. There were maybe 100 people there for the panel but most were either leftovers from the previous panel or waiting for the next one. If I had to guess I would say that approximately 20 fans were actually there to see the Star Wars Books panel. To make matters worse the area was so noisy you could hardly hear the authors as they spoke.
Star Wars continues to reach people and touch their hearts and this is why reason number 2 is….
Reason #2: Inspiration and Hope
Obi-Wan Kenobi was a liar.
At least that’s how many people mockingly refer to him, at least Star Wars community.
Because let’s face it, Obi Wan isn’t exactly the most straight up, stalwart picture of angelic honesty you’ve ever heard of.
According to Cosmic Book News, Lucasfilm might be developing a Star Wars spin-off movie set between Episodes III and IV featuring Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and a 5-year old Luke Skywalker on Tatooine.
I doubt this is the case mainly because Disney really seems to be shying way from anything in the prequel era.
