On May 21, 1980, Star Wars became a true saga with the release of The Empire Strikes Back. In honor of the fortieth anniversary, forty storytellers re-create an iconic scene from The Empire Strikes Back through the eyes of a supporting character, from heroes and villains, to droids and creatures. From a Certain Point of View features contributions by bestselling authors and trendsetting artists:

• Austin Walker explores the unlikely partnership of bounty hunters Dengar and IG-88 as they pursue Han Solo.
• Hank Green chronicles the life of a naturalist caring for tauntauns on the frozen world of Hoth.
• Tracy Deonn delves into the dark heart of the Dagobah cave where Luke confronts a terrifying vision.
• Martha Wells reveals the world of the Ugnaught clans who dwell in the depths of Cloud City.
• Mark Oshiro recounts the wampa's tragic tale of loss and survival.
• Seth Dickinson interrogates the cost of serving a ruthless empire aboard the bridge of a doomed Imperial starship.

Very disappointing and a lot of wasted time to reach that realization. Most of the stories are of little consequence as they can't change Canon. The other stories are lazy and poorly masked attempts to shoehorn persons of color, women as lead characters, and homosexual characters into the Star Wars universe. There is nothing wrong with these goals but they are painting on a canvas that's already been used instead of having the guts to write new stories and see how the general public will respond, fooling others who have invested into these established characters to buy garbage hoping they'll get a few minor details about some plot point they really care about. Save your money on the Disney Star Wars universe and just get downloads of the classic extended universe stories like tales from the Most Eisley cantina. You will enjoy them more.
