    With NYCC 2019 upon us, we expect some exciting news from the Lucasfilm Publishing panel happening this afternoon. Our own John Hoey and Lacey Gilleran are on the ground to cover the news as it unfolds from this panel. Authors expected to be in attendance: Cavan Scott (Dooku: Lost Jedi), George Mann (Star Wars: Myths & Fables), Katie Cook (Journey to The Rise of Skywalker Coloring Book), Zoraida Córdova (A Crash of Fate), and Charles Soule (Darth Vader). Follow along here for updates during and after the panel. We're hoping to get updates on Journey to The Rise of Skywalker, the film's novelization, post-Skywalker saga publications, and the ever mysterious Project Luminous.





    Here's our live tweeting from the event:















































    Insight Editions sent us an in depth video reveal of the pop-up book Star Wars: The Ultimate Pop-Up Galaxy. Check it out:

    First, I hate this new trend of waiting until the film has been out for four months before the novelization is released.
    Second, while I love me some Thrawn (who doesn't???), I feel like they could surely come up with something else for a trilogy. Like why not bring in James Luceno to do something? Sorry for the negativity, but it's been a while since they've had a book lineup that has gotten me excited. :(

    I'm also a big fan of Thrawn but also wonder why we are having to devote 3 books to his backstory when we already know as much as we need to know about who he is. Unless these books set up crucial information about the Chiss society, conflicts, and outer threats that the last two Thrawn books didn't, I don't see the point either. I would love for one of the books to be Outbound Flight from Thrawn's perspective.

    I also agree that Luceno is due for another great villain study. I'd love to see an updated Plagueis canon novel that riffs on the classic and brings my favorite Sith Lord back fully into the events of the galaxy. Luceno would also be amazing for exploring Sidious again in setting up whatever role he may be playing in RoS.

    Outside of our established character, I want to see more of Quinlan Vos. His arc in the now Legends Darkhorse Clone Wars comics are one of my favorite Star Wars stories and they truly show how divisive the Clone Wars were for the Jedi. I love how that series not only shows Vos's inner demons and abilities but also shows how his Master, friends, and peers struggle with neutrality or corruption as they attempt to avoid or resist the war, only to be enlisted by Count Dooku.

    Speaking of Dooku, one of the most interesting parts of the Plagueis story is when Damask encounters Dooku and Qui gon. That deserves a book following up Master & Apprentice.
