At Star Wars Celebration VI, Del Rey unveiled some cool new Star Wars books that had readers excited. There was the big announcement of Sword of the Jedi, the Empire and Rebellion series, and a new essential guide to characters book. The guide turned into The Essential Characters and was to be written by Daniel Wallace and illustrated by Doug Wheatley. Doug even took time away from the Dark Times comic series in order to do the project.

Then Disney happened.

Inevitably that brought about a delay in its release. It was put on pause. Now it’s canceled…at least according to the edelweiss.

It’s not completely unexpected, but it’s still sad to see. With Episode VII forthcoming (not to mention spin off films and a whole sequel trilogy) there will be plenty of new guides in the future. The problem is the thought of all that hard work Daniel Wallace and Doug Wheatley poured into this guide and it not seeing the light of day. Let us hope we get some good news in the Star Wars literary world very soon, because us readers could definitely use it. In the meantime, we’ll all just have to settle for an awesome Darth Maul book coming at the end of January.
