Amazon pulls STAR WARS artwork from site
Book's cover rumored to show a new character from EPISODE III

STAR WARS: BOBA FETT - A NEW THREAT.
Yesterday we reported
the news that Amazon.com had a new listing for the CLONE WARS
novel BOBA FETT - A NEW THREAT
. The young adult novel, to be published in April, introduces a new villain that will be seen on the screen for the first time in EPISODE III
but is introduced in Elizabeth Hand's book. The character is rumored to be an alien being named General Grievious in command of Separtist forces.
Just one day ago, the Amazon.com listing showed the book's cover artwork which seemed to show Grievious standing between two previously established EPISODE II
characters. Now, less than twenty-four hours after the story began appearing on STAR WARS
and entertainment websites such as this one, the artwork for A NEW THREAT
has been removed from the Amazon listing. No explanation is given on the Amazon page for the image's removal.
Curiously, the artwork for future STAR WARS
novels, such as the June release of STAR WARS: MEDSTAR 1 - BATTLE SURGEONS
, remain on the Amazon site. At this time all the evidence points to the conclusion that the likeness of General Grievious was accidentally revealed at least two months before Lucasfilm wanted it in the public domain.
