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…

All-new exciting tales about Han Solo and Chewbacca and their adventures in the Millennium Falcon— along with the pirate Hondo Ohnaka!

Hello, my friends! It is I, Honda Ohnaka, greatest pirate in the galaxy, hero of the Rebellion, and, if you listen to that Obi-Wan Kenobi guy, a villain too. But what does he know?

I am here to tell you stories of that most amazing ship, the Millennium Falcon, including my very first time onboard and a few occasions when I actually flew the Falcon myself! And I did a great job of it, too, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

Oh, there might be a familiar Wookiee in the story. And that Han Solo guy. He has a way of popping up. And some other people you may know. And some you do not.

So hang on tight, because this adventure is traveling at lightspeed and it’s going to be a wild ride!

initial solicitation copy:

Board the Millennium Falcon for exciting tales about Han and Chewie’s adventures with the infamous pirate Hondo Ohnaka – including their first meeting!

A “Flight of the Falcon” tie-in!

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.

In Star Wars: Pirate’s Price, written by Lou Anders with art by Annie Wu, the ship will be back in the hands of Han and Chewie, when the pair teams up with one of the most nefarious (and fan-favorite) smugglers in the galaxy—Hondo Ohnaka.

This incredible, original story captures all of the humor, awkwardness, fun, and frustrations of middle school–all told through one boy’s comics, journal entries, letters, doodles, and newspaper clippings. The setting? A galaxy far, far away…

Roan’s one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his older brother, father, and grandfather. But just as Roan is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot School, he is invited to attend Jedi Academy–a school that he didn’t apply to and only recruits children when they are just a few years old. That is, until now…

This inventive novel follows Roan’s first year at Jedi Academy where, under the tutelage of Master Yoda, he learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed. Oh, and he learns other important things too–like how to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force.
