As Disney prepares to welcome guests to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios later this year, a variety of new books and comics will intersect with the world of Galaxy’s Edge.
In addition to the previously announced Marvel Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge comic miniseries, a prequel novel, Young Adult novel, book of Star Wars myths and fables, and other new titles are also on the way.
Marvel Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Miniseries
Written by Ethan Sacks with art by Will Sliney, Issue #1 of this new miniseries arrives on April 24, 2019. Here’s the official description:
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 in this all-new miniseries from Marvel writer Ethan Sacks (Old Man Hawkeye) and artist Will Sliney (Solo: A Star Wars Story).
Written by Delilah Dawson, this novel arrives September 3, 2019. Here’s the official description:
In this novel, a prequel to the Disney Parks experience, General Leia Organa dispatches her top spy to Batuu in a desperate search for Resistance allies.
Once news of her novel officially broke, Dawson shared her excitement on Twitter:

A Crash of Fate
Written by Zoraida Cordova, this Young Adult novel hits stores on August 6, 2019. Here’s the official description:
In this Young Adult novel, 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 with illustrations by Grant Griffin, this novel arrives on August 6, 2019. Here’s the official description:
In this middle grade novel, hear the thrilling space tales, fables, and myths that are told in a galaxy far, far away. 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.
You can read an excerpt from one of the tales, called “The Knight & the Dragon,” by visiting StarWars.com.
In addition to these titles, “Star Wars” fans can also look forward to a Galaxy’s Edge kids comic from IDW Publishing and an official Galaxy’s Edge cookbook from Insight Editions featuring cuisine created for the new land and dishes from the space saga. The cookbook was written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel (“A Feast of Ice and Fire: The Official Game of Thrones Cookbook” and “The World of Warcraft Cookbook”) with Marc Sumerak (“Star Wars: Droidography”) and it’s suitable for home cooks of all ages and skill levels.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens at Disneyland Resort this summer and Walt Disney World in late fall.
