The Rogue One novelization by Alexander Freed is out today in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats.

Go beyond the film with a novelization featuring new scenes and expanded material.

As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate . . . and a threat that may be too great to overcome.

If the worlds at the Empire’s mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire’s military; Chirrut Îmwe, a blind holy man and his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory—if only they can capture the plans to the Empire’s new weapon.

But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy—a monstrous world unto itself—darkens the skies. Waiting to herald the Empire’s brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review with lots of Star Wars Celebration Europe episodes.

Assembly of Geeks: Getting Ready for Ghostbusters & Comic-Con starts with a Ghostbusters discussion, then they talk about the He-Man cross-over comic with Thundercats, the black and white version of Mad Max: Fury Road, and then they head into the panels of San Diego Comic Con. Fun episode.

Blast Points: Episode 29 starts with a little pre-Celebration discussion of the panels, the livestream, and K2-SO. Then they get into their main topic – vintage Star Wars toy commercials. Now this is a thing I haven’t heard very many podcasts tackle, and I’ve certainly never heard anyone cover it in depth. They dive in, play the audio from the old commercials, and provide some fun feedback on these little gems.

Blast Points: Episode 30 covers SWCE as they highlight the panels. They talk about Mark Hamill, John Knoll, Rogue One, Jiang’s spoiler, stripper Krennic, Lucas’ set visit, the sizzle reel, space monkey, Star Wars Rebels and more. Great episode as always. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #44 covers their trip to Rhode Island Comic Con as they geek out on who they met and what the con was like. I have to admit, it was a lot of fun and very entertaining to hear them recount their experience with Oppo Rancisis himself. They also share their thoughts on Star Wars Rebels “Wings of the Master” and The Force Awakens international trailer. Great episode of Star Wars fans sharing their fandom.

Children of the Force: Episode #17 covers the anticipation for the release of The Force Awakens, why now might be a good time to stop reading, and getting tickets. Then they stop for some storytime as the host recounts his experience of waiting in line and seeing The Phantom Menace for its release. This is my first time listening to this podcast and I was very impressed. Not only do they have really good audio quality and nice music cues, but it’s done by a father and his daughter and son which presents a neat perspective as they share and geek out on Star Wars together. Very well done and a great episode. I really enjoy the storytime segment as there were some entertaining stories. I highly recommend giving this one a listen. I’ll definitely be seeking out more episodes to listen to.

Comic Book Noob: Jessica Jones & The Purple Man covers the first appearance of Jessica Jones in the comics as Jewel, her being a C-list character, a member of the Avengers, her run-in and relationship with the Purple Man, his origins and evil nature, both of their powers, and what we know about the upcoming show plus reading recommendations. I really enjoyed this episode as I had no knowledge of either character and they both sounded really interesting. If you plan on watching the show when it comes out, and you need find out more about the characters, this is definitely a good episode to check out. Comic Book Noob continues to not disappoint.
