The Hollywood Reporter: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Young Reader Graphic Novel to Be Published This Summer (Exclusive)

The Hollywood Reporter debuted the breaking news today that IDW Publishing will be kicking off it’s new Star Wars: Adventures series with an 80-page graphic novel adaptation of the hit movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


“Ahead of the fall launch of IDW Publishing’s Star Wars Adventures comic book, more aimed at younger readers than the current Marvel line of Star Wars material, the San Diego-based publisher will be making a surprise earlier visit to a galaxy far, far away with the U.S. debut of an all-ages adaptation of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The 80-page graphic novel is written by Alessandro Ferrari, with art from a group of Disney artists intended to bridge the gap between Star Wars and traditional Disney animation, making it more attractive for younger audiences. This group has previously adapted both the original and prequel trilogies into comic format for best-selling editions published in the U.S. by Disney Lucasfilm Press.” – The Hollywood Reporter
