Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View is an upcoming anthology of 40 short stories set for release in October 3, 2017, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Each story will be told from the perspective of background characters of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope.


Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View was first teased on social media on April 6, 2017, using the hashtag #OperationBlueMilk. The anthology was officially announced on April 7 with the news that it was a collection of 40 short stories, written by 40 authors, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which was released in 1977. The book will be released in October 2017.[1]

The first-of-its-kind book will be told from the perspective of background characters in A New Hope. Characters include X-wing pilots who fought in the Battle of Yavin alongside Luke Skywalker, as well as stormtroopers who searched for R2-D2 and C-3PO on Tatooine. The characters who populated the background of A New Hope helped create the world that fans fell in love with, so this book will help flesh those characters out in the official Star Wars canon.[1]


Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View is a collection of 40 stories written by 40 authors.[1] The author lineup includes:

Additional authors will be announced prior to the book's publication. All of the authors have forgone being compensated for their writing. The book's proceeds will be donated to First Book, a nonprofit organization that provides books and other educational material to teachers and children's organizations. Penguin Random House is also donated $100,000 to First Book, and Lucasfilm donated 100,000 children's books, valued at $1 million, as well.[1]
