New Release and Review: ‘Black Spire’ by Delilah S. Dawson

Black Spire by Delilah S. Dawson is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

Walk the ancient streets, meet the colorful characters, and uncover the secret history of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the new expansion to the Disney Parks experience!

After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.

A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.

To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu—before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.

Ewan McGregor–Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Confirmed

August 23, 2019 at 8:24 pm | Posted in Conventions, d23 expo, Ewan McGregor, Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm, Miscellaneous, Television | 2 Comments

obiwanFinally what the fans have been waiting for, not to mention what’s been rumored (since forever) has been confirmed.  Kathleen Kennedy took the stage today at D23 Expo to announce that filming for the live action Kenobi series will start next year when McGregor will reprise his role as the younger Kenobi.  The series, with 8 scripts already written, will air on Disney+.

Although McGregor was aged up in Revenge of the Sith to bear a closer resemblance to original trilogy Alec Guinness (who was 63 in 1977), this series will be set 8 years out from ROTS, which now basically makes McGregor at 48 age appropriate.  I guess the old saying is true: all good things come to those who wait.  For both actor and fans.
