5-Minute Star Wars Stories is a collection of 11 tales spanning every film from the Star Wars saga in existence at the time the book was published, from Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. All are retellings of events from the films. While some were created for the volume, others were originally released individually as World of Reading titles. The new versions feature more complex language than their original counterparts, as well as direct quotations from the films.
