Great gifts for fans of the Star Wars films

It’s now less than six weeks before we can all take our seats in the cinema to enjoy the new Star Wars film. Although plot details remain scarce about Episode VII: The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams’ film has already broken presale records and the three brief trailers have gone down a storm(trooper)… But just where is Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker?

As has been stated many times before, Star Wars is a phenomenon – and it’s only set to get bigger with the latest trilogy of films and its various spin-offs. Harking back to practical effects and with original cast members returning to their iconic roles, we imagine this will be the biggest film ever made. But in the run-up to the film’s release and in its aftermath, you and any fan of the galaxy far, far away are going to want to surround yourself with Star Wars books and gifts.

And that’s where Book People comes in…

Any Jedi or Sith will find plenty to love in our hand-picked selection of Star Wars goodies. With the new film conveniently being released in the week leading up to Christmas, why not buy your presents and make some unbelievable savings at the same time.
