Galaxy’s Edge Tie-In Books Announced
In the run up to the theme park Star Wars Galaxy's Edge Disney has announced a handful of new tie in material for the park.
The first is a comic miniseries focusing on Dak-Ondar. The synopsis reads as follows:
“Black Spire Outpost has long been frequented by smugglers, merchants, and travelers from every corner of the galaxy looking to make their score on the infamous black market — or experience the exotic thrills the remote world of Batuu alone has to offer. Aliens like the infamous Dok-Ondar, a proprietor of rare and one-of-a-kind antiquities, thrive on the unique opportunities which abound on the lawless outpost at the very edge of Wild Space in this all-new miniseries from Marvel writer Ethan Sacks (Old Man Hawkeye) and artist Will Sliney (Solo: A Star Wars Story).”
We will also be getting a novel titled “Black Spire” written by “Phasma” author Delilah Dawson.
“In this novel, a prequel to the Disney Parks experience, General Leia Organa dispatches her top spy to Batuu in a desperate search for Resistance allies.”
We will also be getting a new Young Adult novel titled “Star Wars: A Crash of Fate” written by Zoraida Córdova.
“In this Young Adult novel, Izzy and Jules were best friends until Izzy’s family abruptly left Batuu when she was six. Now she’s back, and Jules, the boy who never left, is unsure what to make of her. While on the run from vengeful smugglers and an angry pirate, the two friends will come to terms with who they are, and what they mean to each other.”
“Star Wars: Myths & Fables” will be written by Grant Griffin and will focus on tall tales in the galaxy far far away with some taking place on Batuu.
These books as well as some TBA books will be released to help enrich the lore around Batuu. Galaxy's Edge will open summer of this year.
