Parents are getting new opportunities this year to include a galaxy far, far away into their homes. Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine is a new all-ages book recently announced on starwars.com, and if you’re looking for a way to get your kids into Star Wars, this might be perfect.
Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine looks like an excellent addition to the lore of Luke Skywalker’s home planet. It explores “the Lars homestead, Mos Espa’s podracing Grand Arena, the krayt dragon’s nest,” while also featuring many characters who are fan favorites. This illustrated hardcover book is written by Riley Silverman and its artwork is produced by Studio MUTI. The interior pages provided in the exclusive release wonderfully capture the feel of the Star Wars universe, and then have great descriptions to lock in any young Padawan’s attention.
“After accepting employment from Obi-Wan Kenobi, Han Solo returns to Docking Bay 94, only to discover the gangster Jabba the Hutt waiting for him.”
There are five images currently available to see, along with detailed descriptions to go along with the amazing kid-friendly illustrations. Not only will Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine be a fun way to bring in new readers, it seems like the author made sure to pay homage to the beloved franchise. Silverman is quoted, “I think the book serves as a nice trip down memory lane for long-time fans and as a fun primer for those just taking their first steps.”
Star Wars: Exploring Tatooine will be released on Aug. 30, 2022, and is currently available for pre-order.
