The Phantom Menace (Star Wars: Episode I)by Terry Brooks
Synopses & Reviews
This timeline is intended to explain several Star Wars books that will be published on the Spring 2002 list and some backlist titles that are related to them, leading to the film release of Star Wars: Episode II this spring (tent. around Memorial Day). The first title is Star Wars: The Approaching Storm, which is the second adventure story that takes place between the action of Episode I and Episode II (see preceding Title Information sheet for details). This title will feature a never-before-seen character from the new movie and is written by Alan Dean Foster, the author of the first Star Wars movie-novelization, Episode IV, in 1976. This title will be published in February 2002.
The next book is the Star Wars: Episode II novelization. Unlike Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, this title will be published in April 2002 before the movie is released, allowing the public to read the story before seeing the movie. This novel will expand on material in the movie, giving the reader details about scenes in the movie that the film viewer won't get seeing the film, giving our book added value.
In addition to the novelization being released early, we will also have The Art of Star Wars: Episode II on sale in April 2002. Like its companion, The Art of Star Wars: Episode I, this book will show artwork from the film. In addition to the artwork, the exclusive illustrated screenplay will be included in this book.
On the back of this page, you will find the books that are essential backlist titles relating to Episode's I & II. These include the prequel novels to Episode I. The "adventure stories" that take place between Episode I & II are listed between the novelization's of the movies.
The official novel based on the movie, this book features an expanded story line. The Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi, are charged with protecting Amidala, the young Queen of Naboo, as she seeks to end the siege of her planet by Trade Federation warships. The quest introduces them to a slave boy who has extraordinary instincts.
In barren desert lands and seedy spaceports . . . in vast underwater cities and in the blackest depths of space . . . unfolds a tale of good and evil, of myth and magic, of innocence and power. Based on the screenplay by George Lucas, this novel by master storyteller Terry Brooks probes the depths of one of the greatest tales of our time, providing rich detail and insight into the minds and motives of the characters--and shedding bold new light on Lucas' brilliant creation.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, an evil legacy long believed dead is stirring. Now the dark side of the Force threatens to overwhelm the light, and only an ancient Jedi prophecy stands between hope and doom for the entire galaxy.
The Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice, young Obi-Wan Kenobi, are charged with the protection of Amidala, the young Queen of Naboo, as she seeks to end the siege of her planet by Trade Federation warships. This quest brings Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and one of the Queen's young handmaidens to the sand-swept streets of Tatooine and the shop where the slave boy Anakin Skywalker toils and dreams of finding a way to win freedom from enslavement for himself and his beloved mother. His only hope lies in his extraordinary instincts and his strange gift for understanding the "rightness" of things. It is this unexpected meeting that marks the beginning of the drama that will become legend . . .
