Star Wars recently announced a follow-up to their anthology series From a Certain Point of View anthology series with From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

The anthology will feature 40 stories by 40 authors that will reimagine “the classic sequel through the eyes of background characters — heroes, villains, droids and creatures.”

And as for what that reimagining might look Del Rey editor Elizabeth Schaefer detailed that their unofficial subtitle is “Gay and in space.”

She wrote on Twitter, “It is important to note that our unofficial subtitle for From A Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back is “Gay and in space.”
