Undeniable Fact About AOTC #10: The Novelization Was A NYT Bestseller

R.A. Salvatore, an experienced Star Wars novelist notorious for whacking Chewbacca in 1999’s “Vector Prime,” was tapped to write the novelization for AOTC. The book was unleashed in hardcover on April 23, 2002 (it was released in paperback a year later) and spent several weeks on the New York Times fiction bestseller list, peaking at #2, and spending 7 weeks in the top 10.

Salvatore came to Northern Virginia in May 2002, shortly after the movie came out, and I trucked on down to the Barnes & Noble in Seven Corners for a talk/book signing. Good times!

    The thing I remember most about the children’s novelisation was that the author really didn’t like the Fetts.

    By contrast, Salvatore humanised them. He even included an extraneous scene of Jango taking Boba fishing.
