About this deal

Foregone Conclusion: A few of these stories focus on doomed characters, taking place in what the reader knows is their last moments, such as Raymus Antilles, Greedo, and Dex Tyree. Fully Operational", by Beth Revis ( Rebel Rising): Taking place from the perspective of General Tagge and Admiral Motti as they attend an Imperial meeting aboard the Death Star.

The Secrets of Long Snoot", by Delilah S. Dawson ( Phasma): Taking place from the perspective of Imperial spy Garindan as he reports the whereabouts of Luke, Ben, and the droids to the Empire. Reincarnation: Omi, the dianoga, certainly believes this will happen to her after the Death Star explodes with her on it, and her connection to the Force seems to reinforce it. Junior novelization (Updated) · The Return of the Jedi (French) · Disney Die-Cut Classics · Collector's Classic Read-Along Storybook and CD · Golden Book · The Film Novel (French) · Beware the Power of the Dark Side! Max Rebo remembers his past, which is sometimes tough to differentiate from the present. I don’t like the use of the word “ass.” I felt like this was a story.Laina", by Wil Wheaton: Taking place from the perspective of Ryland, a watchtower rebel on Yavin 4, during an eventful day in the Galactic Civil War. Escape from Darth Vader · Death Star Battle · Trapped in the Death Star! · Trouble on Tatooine · From a Certain Point of View Death Star gunner Corr Lerrann is in his last week after 20 years of service with the Imperial Navy. His post-retirement plan is to develop safety rails. Later, his friends see just how needed they are. In "The Trigger," Dr. Aphra teaches a stormtrooper how to invoke this trope while holding him at gunpoint.

Not Quite the Right Thing: Ryland sent his daughter to live on Alderaan, believing it would be safer for her to be there than on Base One. Full Book Name: From a Certain Point of View: Return of the Jedi (From a Certain Point of View, #3) Austin Walker explores the unlikely partnership of bounty hunters Dengar and IG-88 as they pursue Han Solo.

Tropes in this collection include:

In the two most powerful stories of the book, Anakin Skywalker and Dexter Jettster reflect on how their lives shaped the entire galaxy.

This is another great entry in the From A Certain Point of View series. The stories mostly ranged from very good to fantastic, with only one or two clunkers. Turn Out Like His Father: Yoda is worried about training Luke which is why he initially wanted to train Leia because he believes Luke is temperamental like Anakin and Leia is patient like Padmé. An odd case appears in Pablo Hidalgo's story where he doesn't bring in a character from Legends, but rather dialogue taken directly from the Star Wars Radio Dramas that aired in the 80's; specifically, he included the conversation between Motti and Tarkin talking about the extent of Tarkin's command of the Death Star. Oddly enough, I didn’t mind this story about Salacious Crumb and how he came to be with Jabba. I like that he still has to make Jabba laugh once a day to stay alive. I laughed at the end. The Chronicler - I like the idea of this story but I didn't enjoy reading it outside of Leia. Also did we all just forget Winter?The 29th story is called Impact, by Sean Williams. It's about the people onboard the Executor, the Star Destroyer that crashes into the 2nd Death Star.

And There Was Much Rejoicing: "Duty Roster" and "Grounded" show that the people at Base One erupted into applause when the Death Star is destroyed. Tarkin's decision to keep using the Death Star, according to Krennic in "Verge of Greatness". If he'd still been in control of it, knowing that Galen Erso had sabotaged it somehow and that the Rebels now had its construction plans, he would have taken the time to go through, find out what it was, and fix it. Tarkin didn't, and everyone knows how that turned out for him... At the end of "The Angle", Lando just saw footage of Han piloting the Millennium Falcon and helping destroy the Death Star. Lando then tells Lobot to shoot him if he ever does anything like that; Lando eventually does pilot the Falcon into the second Death Star. In the two most powerful stories of the book, Anakin Skywalker and Dexter Jettster reflect on how their lives shaped the entire galaxy. Both stories, as well as a few others, are full-circle moments for these characters whom so many have loved over the decades. Although From a Certain Point of View forms part of the Star Wars canon, it presents several contradictions. As such, Lucasfilm Story Group's Matt Martin confirmed that the contradictions present in the stories were intentional, as that was part of the project's nature. [8] Media [ ] Editions [ ] American [ ]There is Another", by Gary D. Schmidt: Taking place from the perspective of Yoda as he meets Obi-Wan's Force Ghost during his exile on Dagobah. Damning With Faint Praise: In "Not For Nothing", the Modal Nodes use "Better than Jabba's Palace" to describe any given place as being absolutely terrible. Naturally, this is how they describe the cantina at Mos Eisley. Palpatine", by Ian Doescher ( William Shakespeare's Star Wars): Taking place from the perspective of Emperor Palpatine as he makes a proclamation.
