Return of the Jedi's Anniversary Anthology Collection Will Tell Tales of Wicket, Sarlaccs, Palpatine, and More
Like A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back’s 40th anniversaries before it, Return of the Jedi is celebrating its landmark year in style with its own From a Certain Point of View collection—and the authors include some familiar Star Wars faces, some new ones, and perhaps of most interest to us, a co-founder of io9!
StarWars.com has lifted the lid on the cover and author details for Return of the Jedi: From a Certain Point of View. Like the A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back editions, the anthology will feature 40 tales in chronological order taking place in and around the events of Return of the Jedi, filling in fun asides, backstory to major moments, or the lives of blink-and-you’ll-miss-them characters... and some not so missable ones either.

The author list includes notable Star Wars writers like behind-the-scenes archival books author Phil Szostak, Star Wars Ronin’s Emma Mieko Candon, Brotherhood’s Mike Chen, Dr. Aphra’s Alyssa Wong, and more, alongside writers entirely new to the galaxy far, far away. And yes, as we mentioned, io9's very own Charlie Jane Anders—the scribe behind the new New Mutants: Lethal Legion series at Marvel Comics, and her YA Unstoppable trilogy—will be writing a story focusing on “the life and times of the Sarlacc.” Hell yes.
