Solo: A Star Wars Story Expanded Edition, the novelization of the popular film, is the ultimate source for exclusive content from the thrilling “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Han Solo has thrilled Star Wars fans for decades as a wisecracking scoundrel chasing adventure and dodging trouble and in this new novel adaption of “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” by award-winning author Mur Lafferty, fans of the infamous pilot can see deleted scenes from alternate versions of the script, including Han Solo’s time in the Imperial Navy, Qi’ra’s past, the beginnings of the rebellion, and more.

In the official trailer for the novel (below), fans can get a first look at a deleted scene that could end up in the home video release, featuring Han Solo and Qi’ra attempting to escape Proxima Midnight’s gang.


Here is the official description of the book:

Young Han dreams of someday soaring into space at the helm of his own starship and leaving his home, the gritty industrial planet Corellia, far behind. But as long as he’s trapped in a life of poverty and crime—and under the thumb of the sinister Lady Proxima and her brutal street gang—reaching the distant stars seems impossible. When Han tries to escape with his girlfriend and partner-in-crime, Qi’ra, he makes it out—but she doesn’t. Desperate for a way to find his own offworld vessel and free her, Han enlists in the Imperial Navy—the last place for a rebellious loner who doesn’t play well with others.
When the Empire clips his wings, Han goes rogue and plunges into the shady world of smugglers, gamblers, and con artists. There he meets the charming and cunning high roller Lando Calrissian, makes an unlikely friend in a cantankerous Wookiee called Chewbacca, and first lays eyes on the Millennium Falcon. To snag his piece of the outlaw pie, Han joins a crew of pirates to pull off a risky heist. The stakes are high, the danger is great, and the odds are slim. But never tell Han Solo the odds.

“Solo: A Star Wars Story: Expanded Edition” will be found in book stores everywhere on September 4 and is currently available for pre-order. For more information or to purchase your own copy, visit the publisher’s official website.
