Yen Press to Release Manga Based in Star Wars Universe

Before the events of Star Wars A New Hope and during the events of Order 66, Yen Press is proud to announce the release of two new manga based in the Star Wars Universe. Set for release in the fall of 2020: Star Wars Leia, Princess of Alderaan and Star Wars Rebels.

Story by Claudia Gray and art by Haruichi Furudate, Star Wars Leia, Princess of Alderaan is the never before told story of how a young Leia Organa comes to join the rebellion against the Empire.

A young Princess Leia spends her days learning the ways of politics, aiding those in need and preparing for the traditional ceremony in which she declares her intention to one day rule Alderaan. But as Leia prepares herself to be named the heir of the throne, she becomes aware of the growing distance between her and her parents, who behind closed doors are leaders of the newly-formed Rebellion. Upon learning her parents’ secrets, Leia must now make a choice between her responsibility to the people of Alderaan and her responsibility to save a galaxy crushed by the rule of the Empire.

StarWars Rebels is the manga adaptation of the hit 3D animated series of the same name as seen on Disney XD. The animated series launched with the first two episodes titled Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion and was followed by four seasons that aired from 2014 to 2018.

Set during an era when the Galactic Empire is hunting down the last of the Jedi, a fledgling rebellion against the Empire begins to take form. Star Wars Rebels takes place in the area surrounding the planet Lothal, where the Galactic Empire battles against Ezra, a teenage con artist with latent Force abilities, Kanan, one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order, and the rest of the ragtag rebels on board the starship Ghost. 

For those looking to add to their already growing Star Wars collection or for those looking to start one, be sure to put in your pre-orders and check out the Yen Press site for more info.
