    The Adventures of Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, written by DiTerlizzi and illustrated with Ralph McQuarrie concept art, will be released in in October 2014.

    Star Wars: A New Hope by Palacio will be released in April 2015, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back by Gidwitz in July 2015, and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi by Angleberger in October 2015.
