Star Wars Celebration 2019 Publishing Highlights

Posted by Steve on March 23, 2019 at 04:04 PM CST

There’s no questioning the publishing side of Lucasfilm is a massive part of what makes this franchise so unique, successful and special. The books, novels, short stories, magazines and comic books are as much a part of Star Wars as any of the films or TV series, and the writers, artists, and publishers along with them have become celebrities themselves.

So, it’s no surprise to find them all very well represented at next month’s Star Wars Celebration in Chicago. Del Rey, DK, IDW, Disney/Lucasfilm and Marvel are all there along with many of the authors and artists you love so much.

If your obsessed with the world of Star Wars publishing like I am, then here’s a list of who’s there and when they’ll be speaking.
