Jyn dedicates herself to the cause-and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in… and who she can really trust.

Join the Resistance (Book 1)
Mattis Banz knows that he’s meant to be a hero of the galaxy like the legendary Luke Skywalker, and when General Leia Organa’s Resistance recruits him to join its efforts against the evil First Order, he finally has a chance to fulfill his destiny. But the rest of his squadron doesn’t seem very promising. Sure there’s the Zeltron girl Lorica, famous for her exploits foiling evil smugglers, but there’s also the swamp boy named Dec, who seems to enjoy causing trouble; Dec’s „“brother,““ a droid who thinks he’s a pilot; Sari, whose imposing size contradicts her sweet nature; and Jo, the stuffy group leader with secrets. How is Mattis supposed to be the next Poe Dameron when he and his squad mates spend more time in trouble than flying X-wings? The team will have to learn how to work together when the going gets tough, or they won’t be going anywhere.

Escape from Vodran (Book 2)
Mattis, Lorica, AG-90, and Jo have been captured by the First Order! And things only go from bad to worse when Jo turns traitor on them as soon as they’re in custody and AG is taken away to be reprogrammed as a villainous First Order droid! Can the squabbling Mattis and Lorica work together to figure out a way to escape before they are interrogated–or worse? Meanwhile, Dec and Sari seek out the help of the intimidating gangster Harra the Hutt to save their friends, but bargaining with a Hutt brings its own set of problems. The members of J Squadron will need quick planning and even quicker moves if any of them are going to survive!

Attack on Starkiller Base (Book 3)
The members of J Squadron are at it again, fighting the First Order and trying desperately to be as cool as Poe Dameron. Having escaped the First Order, this ragtag group is on the run–and trying to get back to the Resistance before it’s too late–in the third book of this hilarious Star Wars-meets-The Goonies original fiction series.

illustrated by Elsa Charretier

Disney-Lucasfilm Press

ISBN 978-1-368-02424-2

solicitation copy:

Jump inside the Millennium Falcon and help Luke, Leia, and R2-D2 as they journey across the galaxy on a mission for the Rebellion after the destruction of the first Death Star. With over twenty possible outcomes, readers will have to think like a real rebel to keep Luke and Leia safe from pirates, Imperials, and everything between!

About the Flight of the Falcon book-program:

She may not look like much, but the Millennium Falcon has got it where it counts. And this fall, StarWars.com can exclusively announce that kids of all ages will get the chance to climb aboard and make the jump to hyperspace with a new series of stories, “Flight of the Falcon,” from Lucasfilm Publishing.

The series of books and comics about the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy will help connect different eras of Star Wars storytelling through the adventures aboard the beloved ship. Each fiction title will include a map to trace the literal flight path and help readers understand the time and place where each story is set.

Bazine Netal, the spy seen on Takodana in The Force Awakens, is on the hunt for the Falcon, and her intel leads her across the galaxy to Batuu, a remote outpost on the galaxy’s edge. In order to find the Falcon, Bazine must learn all she can about the infamous YT-1300 freighter—the ship that countless bounty hunters and Imperials have almost caught over the years.

“These tales take us from a time just before Solo: A Star Wars Story, when Lando and L3 had the Falcon, through the original trilogy, and into the new trilogy, ending on the incredible world of Batuu,” says Michael Siglain, Creative Director, Lucasfilm Publishing.

The books are aimed at middle grade readers, ages 8-12, but perfect for anyone who loves a good Star Wars story.

Among the other stories will be an installment from the new Star Wars: Choose Your Destiny line of tales. In A Luke and Leia Adventure, written by Cavan Scott with art by Elsa Charretier, the twins must steal the Falcon for a top secret mission.

Explore the beginning of Leia’s participation in the Rebellion and the origin of her friendship with Amilyn Holdo from The Last Jedi!

Sixteen-year-old Princess Leia Organa faces the most challenging task of her life so far: proving herself in the areas of body, mind, and heart to be formally named heir to the throne of Alderaan. She’s taking rigorous survival courses, practicing politics, and spearheading relief missions to worlds under Imperial control. But Leia has worries beyond her claim to the crown. Her parents, Breha and Bail, aren’t acting like themselves lately; they are distant and preoccupied, seemingly more concerned with throwing dinner parties for their allies in the Senate than they are with their own daughter. Determined to uncover her parents‘ secrets, Leia starts down an increasingly dangerous path that puts her right under the watchful eye of the Empire. And when Leia discovers what her parents and their allies are planning behind closed doors, she finds herself facing what seems like an impossible choice: dedicate herself to the people of Alderaan (including the man she loves) or to the galaxy at large, which is in desperate need of a rebel hero…
