More news from Anaheim and the guys at SWU. (jeez it’s like there’s a Star Wars convention there or something).
The author for the novelization of The Force Awakens was revealed to be Alan Dean Foster. Many may not remember, but he was the author for the original novelization of Episode IV in addition to writing a prequel trilogy book that sort of tied-in to the beginning of Attack of the Clones (the border dispute on Ansion that Mace mentions).
The novelization will be released digitally the same day as the movie and available in paperback a few days later.
