All three books are being put out by Disney Press which is a member of Disney Book Group which in turn handles the bulk of their book publishing. Disney Press tends to focus on young reader material for both children and young teens. It’s worth noting that Scholastic and DK usually cover all of the young reader Star Wars material, so it’s unclear what this means. It could signify that Disney will be taking over that area of the Star Wars book market, or that Disney will simply be handling the Star Wars Rebels material, or even the possibility that Disney is simply joining the others and adding to rather than taking away. For the moment, we’ll just have to wait and see.
