Solo: A Star Wars Story Publishing Slate Revealed

Lucasfilm Publishing has revealed the full slate of novels, comics, and books that will be accompanying the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story.

As before, they’ll provide some insights into this unexplored bit of the Star Wars galaxy; and its characters, both before and after the events of the film. Highlights include a story featuring a post-ROTJ appearance by Lando Calrissian, a new Marvel Comics miniseries, a small crossover with a familiar face from Rogue One.

Here’s what we have in store.

Last Shot by Daniel José Older (Novel)

This novel will be split between three eras. One focuses on Lando and L3-37 before the events of Solo. Another follows Han and Chewie and is set between Solo and A New Hope. This section will also feature Sana Starros, Han’s “wife” who first appeared in the Marvel Comics Star Wars series. Finally, the third portion will take place post-Return of the Jedi, when Ben Solo was very young. This latter story will also dig into where Lando ended up after the Original Trilogy.
