Today StarWars.com has announced even more books and comics coming our way as “we prepare to make our first pilgrimage to the fringes of Wild Space and journey to the planet of Batuu, when Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens” in Disneyland this summer and Hollywood Studios this fall!
These stories will introduce us to Dok-Ondar, reveal why General Leia Organa is interested in Black Spire Outpost, and invite us into more stories set on the Outer Rim.
From the Star Wars website: “StarWars.com is pleased to announce the first six titles that will help introduce fans to the planet of Batuu.”
Marvel Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Miniseries
Written by Ethan Sacks with art by Will Sliney, Issue #1 of the Marvel Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Miniseries will be released on April 24, 2019.
“Black Spire Outpost has long been frequented by smugglers, merchants, and travelers from every corner of the galaxy looking to make their score on the infamous black market — or experience the exotic thrills the remote world of Batuu alone has to offer. Aliens like the infamous Dok-Ondar, a proprietor of rare and one-of-a-kind antiquities, thrive on the unique opportunities which abound on the lawless outpost at the very edge of Wild Space.”
Written by Delilah Dawson, this novel — a “prequel to the Disney Parks experience” — will be released on September 3, 2019.

A Crash of Fate
Written by Zoraida Cordova, this Young Adult novel will be available starting August 6, 2019.
“Izzy and Jules were best friends until Izzy’s family abruptly left Batuu when she was six. Now she’s back, and Jules, the boy who never left, is unsure what to make of her. While on the run from vengeful smugglers and an angry pirate, the two friends will come to terms with who they are, and what they mean to each other.”
Star Wars: Myths & Fables
Written by George Mann, this middle grade novel will be released on August 6, 2019.
“The book features two stories that take place on the remote Outer Rim world of Batuu, plus many other untold tales from the edge of the galaxy, lushly illustrated in a style that pays homage to real-world children’s classics.”
More to Come
