Return of the Jedi: Beware the Power of the Dark Side! is a title from Disney–Lucasfilm Press and the third volume in a new children's series that retells the Star Wars original trilogy in advance of the December 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. The book was first announced on April 17, 2014 and is written by Tom Angleberger, creator of the Origami Yoda children's series.

The title was originally slated for an August 18, 2015 release date, but was released on September 22, 2015.[2]

DevelopmentEdit

Regarding writing the book, Angleberger stated that "If there’s anything better than writing Origami Yoda, it’s writing [this adaptation]." The novel will be "funny at times, but never at the expense of the story" and Angleberger states that he hopes it will capture the excitement he had when he saw the film on the big screen.[3]

On May 4, 2015, Disney provided a preview of this and the other two titles in the series, available in the book section of Disney.com.

On June 5, 2015, Disney revealed the cover artwork for the titles in the series.[4]

ContinuityEdit

The story includes a number of references to material that had not yet been released at times of other adaptations of the Return of the Jedi story. These include several mentions of Padmé Amidala, a mention of Ahsoka Tano, and an oblique reference to Ezra Bridger as the boy who "sent a message across the worlds that ignited a spark of rebellion" during C-3PO's tale to the Ewoks.[5]
