The Star Wars: The Force Awakens novelization is being worked on now. That’s not exactly a huge reveal. Maybe it was even a safe assumption? But there has been some talk as to if we would get novelizations each year with the films hitting so frequently. Back when it was a movie every three years, it was kind of a given. Our friend Florian from Jedi Bibliothek has confirmed to us in English and first on his site the following information:
“We have learned from one of our insider contacts that a Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens adult novel is definitely in the works.”
I imagine in the very near future the identity of the author will be revealed and my money is on Florian and Jedi Bibliothek bringing that information to us.
