The Mandalorian's Story Will Extend To Books And Comics

A successful Star Wars story is bound to expand into books and comics, and it's now happening to The Mandalorian, the hit show that launched on Disney+ last year.

Six Mandalorian books were announced on the official Star Wars site, the most exciting of which is an untitled original adult novel written by Adam Christopher and published by Del Ray. For more insight into the visual style of the show, fans can look forward to The Art of the Mandalorian book by Phil Szostak, as well as The Mandalorian: The Ultimate Visual Guide by Pablo Hidalgo.

Other books include an untitled junior novelization by Joe Schreiber, and a level-two reader book called The Mandalorian: Allies & Enemies by Brooke Vitale, who is also penning an untitled 8x8 storybook based on the series. There's even going to be A Little Golden Book that recaps season one. Marvel Comics and IDW Publishing are both making Mandalorian comic books.

No specific release dates were given for any individual book, but some will hit in the fall (likely around the launch of season two), and others will roll out in the winter and spring. If you want more of the show, Disney's inviting you to read and read and read.
