Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • io9 has a look at the Industrial Light & Magic Presents: Making Solo: A Star Wars Story book.
  • In sad news, Vonda N. McIntyre, the author of the Star Wars Legends novel The Crystal Star, has passed away. Vonda did much more than create one of the most controversial Star Wars villains, Waru, she was also the third woman to win a Hugo Award, she wrote the first original Star Trek novel for the Pocket Books line, and she came up with Sulu and Uhura’s first names. She will be missed, but her books shall live on.
  • I missed this but Jedi Bibliotheck spotted it back in early March, but it looks like they’re doing a Haynes manual for the TIE Fighter. It’s set for an October release.

Celebration News

  • The lotteries have been extended to April 8th so if you haven entered yet there is still time.
  • They’ve revealed more Celebration merchandise on the official site.
  • The collecting sites will have a six piece Celebration patch set you can collect.
  • Here’s a look at all the Star Tots which will be available.
  • Del Rey has revealed their author signing times, and which authors will be at the From A Certain Point of View mega signing. DK will also have signings for its authors. Jason Fry posted his schedule here.
  • Dave Dorman is working on a Rogue One painting he hopes to have done for Celebration. There will not be prints of it available. However, Dave is supplying the artwork for the SWCC VIP package limited edition print, which looks gorgeous.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • StarWars.com has an excerpt from Claudia Gray’s upcoming novel Master and Apprentice.
  • IGN announced a new book The Art of Star Wars Rebels. Interestingly enough, it’s a Dark Horse/Lucasfilm project which will include commentary from Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Carrie Beck and will be written by Dan Wallace, which sounds like a solid plan for success. It’ll be out this October and pre-orders are already available.

Comic News

  • Fans have been wondering if there’s any chance of them going back to Legends to tell more stories. Well, Marvel is taking the plunge, though they’re going old school and doing a Marvel Star Wars #108 one-shot that continues the old Marvel Star Wars comics line, be it only with one issue. Hopefully this trend will continue and one day we’ll get some new Legends novels with the old characters we fell in love with and got invested in. Plus more Celebration guests have been announced.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

Del Rey has revealed Timothy Zahn’s next book will be called Thrawn Treason and will be out Summer 2019. It will be available in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. Pre-orders will go up next week.

“If I were to serve the Empire, you would command my allegiance.”

Such was the promise Grand Admiral Thrawn made to Emperor Palpatine at their first meeting. Since then, Thrawn has been one of the Empire’s most effective instruments, pursuing its enemies to the very edges of the known galaxy. But as keen a weapon as Thrawn has become, the Emperor dreams of something far more destructive.

Now, as Thrawn’s TIE defender program is halted in favor of Director Krennic’s secret Death Star project, he realizes that the balance of power in the Empire is measured by more than just military acumen or tactical efficiency. Even the greatest intellect can hardly compete with the power to annihilate entire planets.

As Thrawn works to secure his place in the Imperial hierarchy, his former protégé Eli Vanto returns with a dire warning about Thrawn’s homeworld. Thrawn’s mastery of strategy must guide him through an impossible choice: duty to the Chiss Ascendancy, or fealty to the Empire he has sworn to serve. Even if the right choice means committing treason.
