Knights Archive spotted the first indications of Star Wars books coming from Disney Press, a department of Disney Publishing Worldwide. Specifically, the books will tie into the upcoming Star Wars Rebels TV series. There appears to be a picture book, a read-along storybook, Level 1 and Level 2 "early reader" novels, a sticker book, a "junior novel," and a "chapter book."
The listings appear in the Disney Book Group Spring / Summer 2014 catalog, as posted by Edelweiss. All are set for release on August 5, 2014. Publications tied to The Clone Wars were similarly released a few months before the series began, although TCW started with a movie in August 2008. Several of these books are listed as having 32 pages, and none of them have authors, suggesting that these may be placeholder entries as more details are being worked out.
