Star Wars: the Force Awakens logo with date

The running time of Star Wars: The Force Awakens may have been revealed as a theater employee across the pond (who previously knew accurate information about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer release) has shown off some documents listing the movie clocking in at 136 minutes. This is just a rumor for now, but it sounds like this could be accurate. [StarWarsNewsNet.com]

In addition to the new Del Rey books above, a couple other titles from the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens publishing initiative were revealed, and both have ties to characters we’ve actually already seen from Episode VII. You may remember that Vanity Fair released a whole photo spread that showed a slew of new alien characters, and it turns out at least two of them are getting their own book.

If you check out that link to the photo, you’ll see a woman in the middle dressed in black and gray. Her name is Bazine and she’ll be the focus of a new book called Star Wars: The Perfect Weapon. That book will arrive on November 24th.

In addition, Landry Walker has a series of novellas coming in a book called Star Wars Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away: Aliens, and it will feature titles such as High Noon on Jakku, Face of Evil, All Creatures Great and Small, plus two additional novellas not yet announced. There’s also one called Crimson Corsair and The Lost Treasure of Count Dooku, which features the bright red character from the above Vanity Fair photo. The first four novellas will be released on December 1st as e-books and then will be combined with two other novellas for a paperback release in April 2016. [Jedi News]

If you’re a fan of Where’s Waldo and you love Star Wars, then you might want to check out Where’s the Wookiee?, a new search and find book available now:

Chewbacca, a notorious rebel ally, is wanted for crimes against the Empire. Not often seen without his partner-in-crime, Han Solo, this Wookiee has evaded capture on multiple occasions, due in no small part to the fastest freighter in the universe, the Millennium Falcon. Chewie, as he is more commonly known, has a sizeable bounty on his head. Can you find this furry criminal before other accomplished bounty hunters beat you to it? A uniquely illustrated search and find format, perfect for Star Wars fans young and old!

The image above is one of the example pages, and you can see another at the book’s Amazon listing right here. It’s weird that they make the default person looking for Chewbacca a bounty hunter, because that kinda makes kids looking for Chewie a bad guy. But whatever works, I guess.

That’s all for this edition of Star Wars Bits. Stay tuned for more soon!
