Classic Sci-Fi/Fantasy mashup setting Spelljammer coming for D&D 5E coming this August

A setting not seen in D&D since the early nineties, Spelljammer melds maritime adventure with planar travel in this three book box set, chock full of player races and classes, monsters, and a sprawling adventure, due out in August:

Spelljammer: Adventures in Space presents the Astral Plane as a Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting unlike any other. Home of the stars and gateway to the heavens, the Astral Plane teems with excitement and possibility. With the help of magic, spelljammers can cross the oceans of Wildspace, ply the silvery void known as the Astral Sea, and hop between worlds of the D&D multiverse.
