    In May we will get Jyn Erso YA novel as well as middle grade novel about Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus. I just ran into this article that proposes 15 Rogue One related comics the author would like to read:

    http://www.cbr.com/rogue-one-a-marvel-comics-story-15-series-we-want-to-read/

    Rogue One has an array of great characters from the main ones to supporting like Admiral Raddus for example. A story could be told about each and every one of them.

    I think I am currently curious about Cassian Andor's Fulcrum role as well as Jyn's time with Saw Gerrera's Partisans. Which Rogue One related stories would you like to get in a book or comic form?

    The book isn't real, it's one of the author's wishes. That's why I asked - what do YOU want?

    Due to the fact that I live in Europe and delivery costs are blown out of proportion (example, to pay $10 and change Funko Pop you have to pay $50), I buy exclusively eBooks when buying from abroad - including SW books. Otherwise, I too have shortage of space on my shelves. :)

    Thanks for clearing that up. I would have been wondering where is Tales of Jedha? I miss holding a real book in my hands but digital makes it so much easier. Its awful how the costs are blown out of proportion. Its time to come state side Lol

    I'd love to see a full fledged novel about the Guardians of the Whills and about the two guys we see in the film. I'd also love to see how Cassian became the man he is. I think I'd prefer to keep Jyns story unknown. I like the fact that I don't know what happened in the years between 8-23.

    I'd love to read Cassian's backstory since he became part of the Rebellion. And how he got Kay-too.

    If they include into the mix characters as Bail and Ahsoka... OMG. I'm totally in.

    Stories about Jyn, the rest of the team, and Krennic would be awesome.

    On that note I personally want a book all about Jedha lore that includes all the different Force cults/religions like the Guardians of the Whills etc. Amazon specifically can be a slight pain and i live in the States, your definitely better off with ebooks when it comes to that.

    Probably not the same thing but a dark side counterpart, the Knights of Ren seem most likely something similar to the Guardians of the Whills, but they worship the Dark Side and revere the Sith, not the light side or in the middle. I'm still hoping Snoke will be someone from the ancient Sith Order who has revoked the name of the Sith to establish some new Dark Side philosophy.

    My theory is snoke and the Ren are pre Sith! Snoke was resurrected .maybe he Force drained someone who came along his crypt.

    Snoke might be from the unknown regions who knows? All fascinating stuff. He does seem to be different from Palpatine in some ways.

    Snoke is a mystery. I can't wait to find out his true origins.

    I totally suport the idea of Tales of the SW Universe beside the main story, specially when they involve some supporting characters tying everything together.

    Therefore is an amazing idea to explore some Han Solo and Obi Wan movies on their own (even Bobba Fett, Lando and Wedge Antilles Rogue Squad deserve the same treatment) and why not a Darth Vader solo movie, exploring the events between the Episode III and A New Hope or the great Jedi Hunt?

    Regarding Tales from Rogue One i would consider.....

    - Chirrut and Baze adventures have tremendous potential
    - The past adventures of Cassian Andor with a dubious moral and a fast finger to servde the Rebellion and don't forget the super sidekick K-2SO
    - On the same page of adventure and undercover commando violence, Saw Guerrera and his crew of misfits deserve it
    - Bodhi Rook's Imperial desertion until he gets in the clutches of Guerrera also has potencial
    - Tales of Temple World Jedha from back in the Jedi Era day is a must
    - Director Krennic gestapo like modus operanti looked cool on a show
    - Mom Mothma and General Dodona building up the Rebel Alliance is very interesting to any SW Fan

    But do anyone of those just throw Jyn Irso in the mix and you have a money making formula

    I'd like a Jyn tale on her adventures as Saw's best unit in his cadre. I want to know what she did up until she was abandoned at the age of 16, and I hope its an adult novel by a good writer like Zahn or Grey.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's not at all ridiculous to think that Jyn is still alive after the events on scarif? That whole thing about 3 or 4-ish Jyn with the pilot helmet in Catalyst. Such a clear familial likeness to Rey on Jakks, after eating her 1/2 portion. I can't get over that obvious setup. Or then ... what was it ... a red herring?!?

    She's very strong with the force. And it seems Cassian is too, They both could have survived it. It wasn't a nuclear blast, just a blast of powerful energy. It's possible -though maybe not probable.

    I know many had speculated that Rey was Jyn and Luke's kid. But after reading "A Jedi's Weapon", I think it's highly unlikely that Luke would have gotten married or had a life partner as it goes. I was thinking Ezra and Jyn. But Jyn and Cassian seems quite possible to me.

    Nothing is impossible in Star Wars, but there would definitely be allot of explaining to be told on how they survived.
