Book News

  • Jennifer Heddle announced on Wednesday that Alan Dean Foster‘s novelization of The Force Awakens hit #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers List.

That said, Star Wars: The Force Awakens by Greg Rucka and Phil Noto is on The New York Times Best Sellers List at #3 for Children’s Middle Grade Hardcover (was #2 last week) and #1 for Children’s Middle Grade E-Book. Also worth noting that Greg Rucka‘s Before the Awakening was #1 for Children’s Middle Grade E-Book at the beginning of the year.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review including my reviews of the live podcast panels I was able to attend at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.

Coffee With Kenobi: Celebration live panel was a lot of fun and a great way to start the day. Everyone was high off the new trailer for The Force Awakens, and Coffee With Kenobi was able to keep the fun going. They had John ‘Dak’ Morton on as a guest to talk Star Wars. He compare the film to some of Coppola’s greatest movies, The Godfather and Apocalypse Now, and talked about how Star Wars stood out from films like that because of how it inspires people. They discussed fears and overcoming them, and how those themes tie into Star Wars. John also talked about visiting the people who waiting in line overnight, his thoughts on Star Wars Rebels and Ezra’s character, and the panel he’s doing at Celebration that focuses on military personnel and Star Wars. As always, John is a great guest and they touched on some good topics. Afterwards Dan and Cory covered The Force Awakens panel that kicked off the day, touching on Kathleen Kennedy, BB-8, Rey as a scavenger, the trailer, the impact of Han and Chewie, Mark Hamill’s narration, the passing of the sword and even the cinematography. Their second guest was Jeff McGee from Assembly of Geeks and Marvin Dog Media. Jeff chatted with them about the collectibles at Celebration like the Bossk hoodie and Funko Fett. And wrapping things up was Kevin Liell from Norse Legion and a giveaway of some of their cool Star Wars jewelry. I have to admit, I was very impressed with the panel. They pulled off a live show like pro’s with great guests, great discussion and lots of fun. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Tags: , , , ,

I noticed this entry last week on edelweiss however I didn’t know all the details until I listened to Rebels Declassified – Empire Day which features guests Adam Bray and Tricia Barr. There Adam and Tricia revealed that they both worked on an upcoming DK book called Ultimate Star Wars: The Definitive Guide to the Star Wars Universe. While this is the third Star Wars book for Adam Bray, this will be Tricia Barr’s first Star Wars book, and here at Roqoo Depot, we wish Tricia a congratulations! She’s now part of canon.

As the above image shows, Ultimate Star Wars will be out in April 2015. While it only shows the author as Ryder Windham, the book also includes the before mentioned Adam Bray and Tricia Barr, along with longtime Star Wars author Dan Wallace.
