Plenty of Rogue One Reading to Do!

Available in paperback March 28

Rogue One may be out of most theatres now but will be available on home video on April 4th (possibly earlier in digital format). Until then here’s a quick look at some of the Rogue One books to enjoy now, and a few coming soon:

Rogue One DK Readers Secret Mission (Level 4) – facts & details about the rebellion, the Empire and more fill this levelled reader for confident, independent readers, along with plenty of great photos from the movie. Almost like a mini version of the fantastic Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide. (DK Books)

Rogue One Ultimate Sticker Encyclopedia – loaded with images from the movie, this hefty sticker book features more than 1000 stickers and loads of information for detail-loving young fans. Some of the aliens and droids barely seen in the film are much clearer here. 96 pages of Rogue One fun! (DK Books)

Art of Coloring: Rogue One – part of the popular trend of more “grown-up” style coloring books, this has 128 pages of black and white line art images depicting many characters, ships and designs from the movie. The simplified images may also be helpful to young artists learning to draw the new Rogue One aliens and droids. (Disney/Lucasfilm Press)

Rebel Dossier – follow the story of Rogue One through the characters’ correspondence and data files. See our review here. (Disney/Lucasfilm Press)

Coming Soon:

Rogue One Junior Novel – the entire story of Rogue One in junior novel format will be available in paperback March 28! Written by novelist and game designer Matt Forbeck. Includes 8 pages of colour photos.(Disney/Lucasfilm Press)

Rebel Rising – a new Young Adult novel focusing on Jyn Erso’s younger days and her time with Saw Gerrera. Written by Beth Revis. Available May 2. (Disney/Lucasfilm Press)
