A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. (Man, these con weekends are brutal!)

Earlier today, Yen Press announced that they licensed Claudia Gray and Yuusaka Kamiyama’s Star Wars: Lost Stars manga. The title’s first volume will be released in May 2018.

Star Wars: Lost Stars adapts Gray’s Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Lost Stars novel. The series launched on messaging app LINE’s “LINE Manga” service Earlier this year. The title has yet to be adapted to print.

Disney describes the original novel as:

This thrilling Young Adult novel gives readers a macro view of some of the most important events in the Star Wars universe, from the rise of the Rebellion to the fall of the Empire. Readers will experience these major moments through the eyes of two childhood friends–Ciena Ree and Thane Kyrell–who have grown up to become an Imperial officer and a Rebel pilot. Now on opposite sides of the war, will these two star-crossed lovers reunite, or will duty tear them–and the galaxy–apart? Star Wars: Lost Stars also includes all-new post- Star Wars: Return of the Jedi content, as well as hints and clues about the upcoming film Star Wars: The Force Awakens, making this a must-read for all Star Wars fans.
