Counting down the 263 days until The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
In the days leading up to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, And There Came A Day will present links, images, videos, art, memories, laughs, theories and thoughts leading up to the big day… which happens to be on my birthday! ENJOY and may the Force be with you, always… or at least until 12.18.15!
It’s going to be like this until The Force Awakens opens. Information and rumor will leak out in slow drips and then in big waves. Count this as part of the wave we’ve mentioned in Countdown a few times this week. The novel Aftermath by Chuck Wendig will chronicle the events that immediately followed Return of the Jedi as part of the new canon of Star Wars fiction. This book is part of what is branded as “The Journey to The Force Awakens” and will be published in September!
From the amazon.com description: “The second Death Star is destroyed. The Emperor and his powerful enforcer, Darth Vader, are rumored to be dead. The Galactic Empire is in chaos. Across the galaxy, some systems celebrate, while in others Imperial factions tighten their grip. Optimism and fear reign side by side. And while the Rebel Alliance engages the fractured forces of the Empire, a lone Rebel scout uncovers a secret Imperial meeting. . . “
Yeah, I’ll be reading this.
