Head on over to The Hollywood Reporter for an interview they recently conducted with Alex Segura, author of the upcoming Star Wars: Poe Dameron: Free Fall young adult novel from Disney Publishing that was announced back in January. THR also gives us our first look at the final cover art that has been selected for the title (click the supplied image below for a closer look) designed by artist Phil Noto.
This Poe-centered young adult novel (352 pages) is scheduled to be released later this summer on August 4 and can be pre-ordered right here.
Poe Dameron fans are about to learn more about the hotshot pilot, including questions raised about his past in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The upcoming novel Star Wars Poe Dameron: Free Fall, will reveal more of the backstory of the fan-favorite character played onscreen by Oscar Isaac, and how he’s connected to Zorii Bliss, Keri Russell’s Skywalker character.
“It’s an epic, action-packed crime novel in space. At least that’s what I was thinking about as I wrote it. Heists, double-crosses, space battles, surprises, and deadly odds,” writer Alex Segura tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Just what you’d want to see in a Poe Dameron adventure… and if you left the theater after seeing The Rise of Skywalker with questions about Zorii Bliss, the Spice Runners of Kijimi, and many of the teases you saw on film, you can look forward to them being answered in the pages of the novel.”
