    Chirrut and Baze have recently been entered into the Star Wars canon in 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but the book from creator Greg Rucka adds his take on the characters for his all new novel, Gaurdians of The Whills. Read on for more details...





    While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story took place shortly before the events in the original 1977 'Star Wars' film, the new book is set in the years leading up to the 'Rogue One' movie when the Empire came to take over the planet of Jedha. Guardians of the Whills chronicles the adventures of Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe as they attempt to resist the Empire forces on Jedha and defend the Holy City and its conquered people.



    The excerpt shared from Entertainment Weekly's exclusive is an early part of the novel that depicts a chance encounter between Baze/ Chirrut and the Empire's Stormtoopers. Can Baze and Chirrut protect the people of Jedha and take a stand against the Empire?

    Also, an interesting nugget is revealed about Baze Malbus:



    From a canon standpoint, it adds another level to the Star Wars lore.

    Can't wait to read this, Chirrut's lines go the giggles going for me.

    Looks interesting... while Chirrut was more visible in Rogue One, it was Baze that I wanted to know more about - what led him to being the defender and companion of the blind monk in the first place.

    Not sure if it's just the way I'm reading it, but the excerpt about Baze and his anger/lost balance feels odd compared to his restraint and calculated nature in the movie (up to the point where he goes into vengeance mode of course).

    Guess I'll have to keep an eye out and add it to the 'read' list.
