‘Darth Vader and Son’ Follow-Up ‘Vader’s Little Princess’ Coming This May

Vader's Little Princess

Last year on May the Fourth, a celebrated day in Star Wars fandom, Chronicle Books released Darth Vader and Son, the full-color illustrated picture book that humorously and heart-warmingly explored a “what if…” relationship between Darth Vader and his son Luke Skywalker as a toddler.

In my review of the book, by Jeffrey Brown, I said you wouldn’t find a more adorable Star Wars book that year. Well, that year is up, and when May the Fourth rolls around again this year, the adorableness continues with Vader’s Little Princess, Darth Vader and Son‘s follow-up that centers on Luke’s twin sister, Leia. The new 64-page hardcover picture book depicts a relationship between the Dark Lord of the Sith and his daughter, Princess Leia, as a sweet toddler with her hair in the famous buns, as well as in her rebellious teenage years.

The book’s cover went through a lot of development, which you can read about and view images from here at the book editor Steve Mockus’ blog. You’ll see the back cover illustration showing Vader not too happy about his teenager daughter’s metal bikini attire!

Vader’s Little Princess will be released on May 4, 2013, so be sure to pre-order it now to receive it on release day; it’ll be out in enough time to get for Father’s Day, which, let’s face it, is a perfect gift for that holiday.

In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader™ and Son, Vader—Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire—now faces the trials, joys, and mood swings of raising his daughter Leia as she grows from a sweet little girl into a rebellious teenager. Smart and funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars® moments a twist by bringing these iconic family relations together under one roof. From tea parties to teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2’s hologram, and making sure Leia doesn’t leave the house wearing only the a skirted metal bikini, Vader’s parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.
