New Essential Characters Guide May Be Canceled

Posted by Eric on December 16, 2013 at 09:05 AM CST

Our friends at Knights' Archive noticed that the Edelweiss catalog listing for The Essential Characters describes the book as "cancelled." We had previously seen this entry list a 2016 release date, suggesting that the book was being delayed until after Episode VII, and more recently the listing was updated with what seemed like a placeholder date of January 1, 2035. The book was to be written by Daniel Wallace and would feature "50 full-color character illustrations" by Doug Wheatley.

"This all new book will not only serve as a welcome introduction for new readers but also offer all new material for readers who who have read the previous book," the listing summary read.

Asked about the updated listing, Del Rey editor Erich Schoeneweiss declined to comment. Wallace also declined to comment.
