Earlier this month Lucasfilm announced a new Marvel comic miniseries based around the upcoming Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme park attractions. Today StarWars.com has been updated with news that more Galaxy’s Edge-themed literature will be coming down the line including a new novel titled Star Wars: Black Spire from author Delilah Dawson set in the time period before the events that take place in the theme park. Scheduled to be released on September 3, here is a brief synopsis for the Dawson-penned novel:
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.
Sounds like the novel will tie heavily into the interactive experience attendees will get to enjoy via the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride.
We also have the reveal of a few new Galaxy’s Edge young adult titles that will be landing in August as well as an official release date (April 24) for the first issue in the Marvel comic miniseries mentioned earlier. A synopsis for the series was provided too:
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).
