The Christina Starspeeder saga continues in this laugh-out-loud epic froom author Amy Ignatow and illustrator Jarrett Krosoczka in the New York Times bestselling series, Star Wars: Jedi Academy!

As told through a mix of comics, doodles, and journal entries, it’s a new year at Jedi Academy! Christina Starspeeder made it through her first year at the advanced Jedi Academy . . . Barely . . . And year two isn’t looking any easier! Christina still apprentices under Jedi Master Skia Ro while enduring the non-stop sass from droid Q-13. But this year, she has to balance her studies with constant travel, accompanying Skia Ro on non-stop trips to new worlds full of cool creatures. And those cool creatures are the start of all Christina’s problems this year.

When working on the planet Cholganna, Christina falls in love with a baby nexu – a cat-like creature who’s fluffiness is impossible to resist. But when she sneaks the nexu – named “Fluffernut” – back into the dorms, Christina slowly begins to realize why it’s never a good idea to take wild animals for pets. Fluffernut begins growing and growing – she’ll eventually grow to be 14 feet long and 3 feet tall! Plus, she’s chewing up EVERYTHING in sight. And if that weren’t bad enough, a mysterious bounty hunter seems to be on her trail, trying to steal Fluffernut back. Can Christina escape this jam without getting thrown out of Jedi Academy? Or will this be the end of her Jedi Academy career?

In this Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker young adult novel set just before The Force Awakens, a restless teenager sets out to discover what connection his mysterious Force powers have to the fabled Jedi and what the Force has in store for him.

writer Kevin Shinnick at the San Diego Comic Con Lucasfilm Publishing panel:

In Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s Force Collector, Kevin Shinick strove to present a feeling of mystery — one pulled from when we didn’tknow a galaxy far, far away.

“What I wanted to do was try to capture that feeling of not knowing Star Wars, not knowing who the Jedi were,” he said. As such, Force Collector is set on a world with fewer resources in terms of historical knowledge, which propels the story’s protagonist on his adventure. When the main character touches an object, Shinick explained, he can see its history; his grandmother believes he may be Force-sensitive, and encourages him to head out on his own. “She’s like, ‘I think if you go out into the world…life will teach you the way.’”
