The Star Wars franchise famously consists of a variety of mediums past simply the movies — quite a few books, comics, and video games fill within the untold corners of the galaxy, and have arrange the world for the approaching installments. Lucasfilm just unveiled its publishing slate that may result in the subsequent movie, The Rise of Skywalker, and it features a novel that may bridge the hole from The Final Jedi, written by writer Rebecca Roanhorse.
The brand new grownup novel is Resistance Reborn, set to be launched on November 12th, simply earlier than the The Rise of Skywalker premieres in December. The bare-bones description says that it’s going to observe Basic Leia Organa, Poe Dameron, Finn, and Rey as they “struggle to rebuild the Resistance after their defeat at the hands of the First Order.” Excitingly, the e-book will likely be written by Rebecca Roanhorse, who earned a Hugo and Nebula nomination for her unbelievable debut novel Trail of Lightning, and a Nebula win for her brief story Welcome to Your Authentic Indian Experience TM. Her newest e-book, Storm of Locus, simply hit shops.
That isn’t the one e-book that Lucasfilm will launch underneath the “Journey to Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker” label. November may even convey Pressure Collector, a YA novel authored by Kevin Shinick, about teenager who “sets out to discover what connection his mysterious Force powers have to the fabled Jedi, and what the Force has in store for him.” Marvel Comics may even launch a 4-issue miniseries referred to as Allegiance, concerning the surviving Resistance fighters and Leia’s efforts to “reach out to her former allies, the Mon Calamari, whose shipyards once powered the Rebel Alliance.” That’ll be written by Ethan Sacks and illustrated by Luke Ross.
The publishing slate may even embrace quite a lot of kid-oriented books, image books, and comics, in addition to some non-fiction tie-ins like The Artwork of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visible Dictionary, and others. What’s lacking out of all that’s an official novelization of the movie, though Lucasfilm has opted to publish the novelizations for The Final Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story months after the movies got here out.
These new books add on to the already-busy publishing slate that Lucasfilm is overseeing this 12 months. June will bring Alphabet Squadron from Alexander Freed, the primary of a brand new trilogy concerning the New Republic’s starfighter pilots, Timothy Zahn will release a new Thrawn novel in July, and Delilah S. Dawson’s Black Spire is due out on September third, 2019 and can tie in with Disney’s Galaxy’s Edge theme park.
