Over on edelweiss they’ve posted some new info on Christie Golden’s upcoming Ventress/Vos novel.

The last story never told in The Clone Wars television saga: A tale of trust, betrayal, love, and evil starring the hugely popular ex-Sith/never-Jedi female bounty hunter, Asajj Ventress! A tale written but never aired, now turned into a brand-new novel with the creative collaboration of the Lucasfilm Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels!

When the Jedi decide to target Count Dooku—Darth Tyranus—himself, they turn to his ex-apprentice, Asajj Ventress, for help in getting close to the slippery Sith Lord. But when unexpected sparks fly between Ventress and Quinlan Vos, the unorthodox Jedi sent to work with her, the mission becomes a web of betrayal, alliances, secrets, and dark plotting that might just be the undoing of both Jedi and Sith—and everything in between!

Tentative Release Date: July 7, 2015 (Hardcover)

Convention Promotions: Star Wars Celebration Anaheim (4/15), Phoenix Comicon (6/15), San Diego Comic-Con (7/15) and New York Comic Con (10/15)

Based on a series of scripts written by Katie Lucas, George Lucas’s daughter, and developed with full collaborative effort by the Story Group and Dave Filoni, Executive Producer and Director ofThe Clone Wars television series, this new Star Wars novel brings to complex and exciting life a story planned for but never told on TV—and one of the most popular anti-heroines of the Star Wars galaxy: Asajj Ventress!

So in the latest Force For Change video, J.J. Abrams tries to get people to think of charity, but utterly fails by distracting everyone with the awesome visual of an extremely weathered starfighter that is not an X-wing. But hey, you could win a chance to be on set with that ship if you help out the charity. Anyways, check out the video and the uber cool starfighter.
