We talk about our influences for these stories, new midwinter festivals we’ve introduced in a galaxy, far far away such as the Alderaanian festival of Winter’s Heart, and how holiday stories tap into the central themes of the universe that George Lucas created all those years ago!
Here’s an excerpt from our conversation:
As we discover in the book, Life Day has spread from the Wookiee’s home planet and is now celebrated on worlds near and far—and yes, we do feature a story set on Kashyyyk with Chewbacca’s family, including his father Attichitcuk, wife Mallatobuck, and son Lumpawaroo.
And speaking of Chewbacca’s family here are everyone’s favourite fuzzballs in this incredible portrait by Grant Griffin who is providing the illustrations for the festive collection.
You have no idea our insanely happy that painting makes me!
