In a build up to the final film of the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm reveals a series of books and comics tied to the final story. Fans will have plenty to hold them over until the movie’s release this December. Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm creative director of publishing, stated:
The Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker publishing program is our biggest and boldest film tie-in program yet. We’ve got exceptionally talented authors, artists, and publishers creating content for fans of all ages. While these titles will include some hints and Easter eggs for the new film, the majority of these titles will feature all-new stories set following the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Our ‘Journey to’ books and comics will star Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose, and, of course, Leia, Chewie, the droids, and the First Order. Here, you’ll get a glimpse at both the state of the galaxy and some of the ongoing battles between the Resistance and the First Order.”
