t’s going to be a great year for anyone collecting Star Wars Legends books.

If you thought you were almost done with your collection … surprise! You’re not.

In celebration of Lucasfilm’s 50th anniversary, Del Rey Star Wars has announced a new series of essential Legends re-releases -- including two books from Youtini’s own Foundational Five list of notable Star Wars books to begin your journey through the Expanded Universe.

The series will begin with Heir to the Empire, Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, and Shatterpoint. Each book will be released with brand-new cover art in trade paperback format. Shatterpoint will also get its own unabridged audiobook for the first time, narrated by Sullivan Jones.

These book covers are formatted specifically to give as much room to the breathtaking artwork as possible, so all text and the gold Legends banner take up only a small portion of the top of each book.

All of these re-releases will drop on June 15, 2021, with another wave of new paperbacks coming this fall.

Does this mean we might finally one day be able to have all of our Star Wars books in the same size? Probably not, but there’s always hope.

Check back soon for pre-order links, and make sure you’re following Youtini on Twitter for all the latest news on Star Wars books, comics, TV, and more.
