A First Look at Star Wars: Journey to the Force Awakens Book – Ships of the Galaxy


Jedi-Bibliothek has unearthed the cover to one of the books in the Journey to the Force Awakens book series, which will precede the Star Wars: The Force Awakens film in December of this year. And, thanks to the good folks over at Making Star Wars, we have a translation of the book’s description.

"Discover the essential details of the best-loved ships from the Star Wars universe in this ultra-cool book that features a giant foldout with new ships from Star Wars: The Force Awakens!From the Jedi starfighters to the one and only Millennium Falconand more, learn all about the best and fastest ships in the Star Wars galaxy. Each page of this clever book uncovers amazing info and little-known facts about your favorite Star Wars ships. Open up the pages of the foldout to reveal even more Star Wars spacecraft!"

Ships of the Galaxy will be available on September 8, and will be the second reference book in The Journey to the Force Awakens series. The other reference book being Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know, which will be available on September 4.

This particular book will be targeting younger audiences, but I see no reason why my 41 year old self won’t be picking up a copy. If the book provides pictures and specs on all the ships in the Star Wars universe, then it will definitely be worth the odd looks from parents in the kid’s section of Barnes & Noble. “What? I’m buying it for my kid.”

You can buy Star Wars: Ships of the Galaxy at Amazon.com in hardcover for $9.23 on September 8, or go ahead and pre-order now.
