Happy St. Patrick’s Day all!
Besides all the people wearing green and perpetuating racial stereotypes, there was some more news about the new Star Wars:Aftermath novel. News such as… the cover:
Besides this very nice cover art, StarWars.com also announced that the book will be the first in a trilogy starting in September and will be filling us in about some of the events between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. The article mentions specifically “What I can reveal is that you will be introduced to a sweeping new cast of characters, along with a fan favorite from the films“. So it seems there will be exactly one of the main characters in Aftermath, with a host of new characters filling out the roster. Also, they hint that some of the locations we’ll see in the book could be relevant to Episode VII.
For a lot of other people this news might not be so big. I am always excited to hear about the next Star Wars novels though, as they are my second favorite way of experiencing the Galaxy Far, Far Away. If you’re excited too, Amazon has a listing up for pre-order already!
