    Back in June, it was revealed a follow-up was being made to From a Certain Point of View, a book containing 40 original short-stories centered around the original Star Wars film. The new one is called From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back, and it is due out next Tuesday.



    Now, Del Rey has unveiled a new excerpt for Mark Oshiro's story, Hunger, via SYFY WIREThe story will be focused on the Wampa that attacked Luke on Hoth, at the very beginning of The Empire Strikes Back. The site has also released an audio clip of the story narrated by the one and only Sam Witwer, who voiced Darth Maul in the animated series (as well as several other characters across other Star Wars media), and who has pretty much become an ambassador of the franchise in the fan community. He even cameoed in the season premiere of The Mandalorian.



    In addition, Oshiro gave some insight to SYFY WIRE on his process writing the story:

    He also revealed another story he pitched Del Rey to write for the book:

    He also credits Mark Hamill for inspiring the story:

    From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back will be released next Tuesday, November 10. You can already preorder it here.

Last but not least, here is the beginning of the excerpt from Hunger by Mark Oshiro. Head over to SYFY WIRE to read the rest.
