StarWars.com has just announced a brand new series of books and comics that will connect all eras of Star Wars centered around the Millennium Falcon. Each of the stories will chronicle a different flight of the Falcon and include a map of the actual journey. The series will follow the Falcon through it’s various different pilots, adventures and iterations through research done by First Order spy Bazine Natel.
Bazine Natel, 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 series will launch with a book by New York Times bestselling author Justina Ireland and the extraordinary illustrations of artist Annie Wu with Star Wars: Lando’s Luck, a middle grade novel aboard Lando’s pristine version of the ship.
The series of the books will be aimed at middle school aged kids, but should be enjoyable for any fan.
