Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide stated that the new publishing program has been designed to appeal to a variety of fans both young and old and will include young reader novels, ebooks, apps, comics, and more, and will feature characters that are familiar to us as well as brand new characters and perspectives on classic stories.

Some of those could be interesting...    I'm especially curious about the ones that might describe the events leading up to TFA. Replacing the old EU with the new canon EU.

 

Though I'll probably be skipping the young adult ones. Just not my cup of tea.

 

I don't think it was on the starwars.com article, but somewhere else I had read that some of the titles will be the events of the original trilogy retold through the eyes of some of the minor characters... which does sound intriguing. Getting a fresh perspective on them.

 

 

And hopefully it will be enough to keep us all satisfied until the film opens in December, haha. And stay away from all these dreaded rumors and spoilers so that we're still surprised when it's on the big screen.
