5-Minute Star Wars Stories is a hardcover anthology collecting twelve Star Wars children's stories. The title serves as a refresh of the 2015 collection of the same name with new art and some new stories. Although it was scheduled for release in the United States on November 3, 2020, it never came out and has not been officially confirmed as cancelled by publisher Disney–Lucasfilm Press. Internationally, the book was fully translated and released in a number of countries.
5-Minute Star Wars Stories was first revealed in an official book listing published by Disney–Lucasfilm Press on the publishing industry repository Edelweiss+. In the listing, the publisher revealed that the title would follow the format of the 2015 collection of the same name, but would feature all-new stories from the Star Wars saga. The book was listed as due for release on November 3, 2020.
On September 10, 2020, StarWars.com revealed the upcoming slate for that year's Star Wars Reads, an annual event fostering reading in children and Star Wars fans of all ages. In the announcement, StarWars.com released a poster and cover image for 5-Minute Star Wars Stories, revealing that the book would mimic the art style of the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures animated micro series.
Despite the official listing and announcement by StarWars.com, 5-Minute Star Wars Stories was never published in the United States and missed its designated November 3 release date. Internationally, the book saw release in a number of languages.
