StarWars.com announced earlier today that a new series of books for young readers centered on the Millennium Falcon is coming this fall, and will span several eras of the saga.
The series is titled “Flight of the Falcon,” and will feature stories about the Millennium Falcon and its pilots over various books and comics, and each story will include a map to trace the actual flight path so readers can know the exact time and place where each story happens.
Here are the titles and descriptions of the first few books in this series from StarWars.com, which will feature Lando and L3-37, Luke and Leia, and what sounds like the most exciting story, Han and Chewie in an adventure with Hondo!
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.
Bazine Netal, 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.
In A Luke and Leia Adventure, written by Cavan Scott with art by Elsa Charretier, the twins must steal the Falcon for a top secret mission
Star Wars: Pirate’s Price, written by Lou Anders with art by Annie Wu, the ship will be back in the hands of Han and Chewie, when the pair teams up with one of the most nefarious (and fan-favorite) smugglers in the galaxy—Hondo Ohnaka.
Sounds like this will be a fun series to follow when each book in the series gets released, and there is no other ship you can do these types of stories about that has seen more action and adventure than the Millennium Falcon!
