With new games, shows, and movies all on the way, Star Wars is already ruling 2015. Things are only going to get bigger from here. Disney announced this week that the entire saga is ready to launch, surprisingly, a new series of Little Golden Books for kids.
The Star Wars Little Golden Books will soon join the iconic series of children's books that has been helping kids get to sleep since the '40s. Each book is designed to capture a single movie in the six-film saga, and will feature writing and artwork from different creative teams as well as those gold spines we all grew up with.

"The Star Wars franchise has woven itself into the hearts and minds of generations of fans, many of whom read Little Golden Books as children," said Jeanne Mosure of Disney Publishing Worldwide in the official release. "We’re very excited to be incorporating Little Golden Books into our overarching strategy so parents can now introduce their own children to the wonders of the galaxy through this classic format."
The books will be available on July 28th, with a complete boxed set seeing release on September 1st. We have just one question, though: how can anyone make the birth of Darth Vader look cute?
