Beware The Power Of The Dark Side!

By Tom Angleberger

Beware The Power Of The Dark Side is a retelling of Return Of The Jedi.

Check out my review of the retelling of A New Hope here. Check out my review of the retelling of Empire Strikes Back here.

I am having mixed feeling about Beware The Power Of The Dark Side!, it was better than the Empire Strikes Back retelling, but not as good as the A New Hope retelling. The writing style chosen was a narrating style, which made more sense than the second person used in the Empire Strikes Back retelling, but still did not quite hit the mark.

I found it funny how Angleberger made it quite obvious that Ewoks eat anything, and by anything I mean ANYTHING. Angleberger also touch on why the Ewoks had not attacked the Empire’s Shield Generator.

Apart from the scenes on Endor and the subsequent battle of the Second Death Star, the rest of this retelling was quite weak.

Better than the Empire Strikes Back retelling, yet not as good as the A New Hope retelling, this retelling of Return Of The Jedi is still a worth while read to see how Angleberger adapted the final movie in the original trilogy.

3/5
