A middle grade novel tied to the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire’s ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. — via goodreads.com
Cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for this and the other young adult novels that are said to follow i.e. Jyn Erso. These characters from Rogue One deserve to tell their stories and add more depth to their backstories.
Look for this novel to be released May 2nd, 2017! Book is said to be written by Greg Rucka and published through Disney Books.
