Del Rey revealed their complete timeline of Star Wars books this week, featuring their new canon novels (and a short story.) It doesn’t include books from the other publishers (like Marvel’s comics or Disney Lucasfilm Press’ Lost Stars or the upcoming Ahsoka) but it’s a good starting place for anyone who needs it.
→ Speaking of starting places, StarWars.com has a nice primer on Grand Admiral Thrawn from Linda Hansen-Raj for anyone who wants to do some reading before he returns on Rebels. (Or just to learn what all that fuss was about.) On that note, Zahn’s Thrawn is now available for pre-order.
Debuting (sort of) on the latest Star Wars Show is the U-wing, or Incom UT-60D, a new ship we’ll see in Rogue One… Which was also in the very first piece of Rogue One concept art we saw! That’s the movie still above, and here are a few screenshots:
Learn more from our old pal Matt Martin of the Story Group, who stops by with more details. The show also features “Weird Al” Yankovic.
They also announced a second show, The Star Wars Aftershow, which launches Thursday on Verizon’s Youtube. It’ll be hosts Andi and Peter along with “other Lucasfilm employees” talking about the week’s news in a round table setting.
Jedi News has what’s likely the production name for the Han Solo film – Carbonado Industries (UK) Ltd. The second name is a tad more mysterious – PLT Productions Ltd. – but it could be for Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX, the third spinoff or even another Lucasfilm production like Indiana Jones.
Daisy Ridley shuts down her Instagram. She deleted her account on the social photo site after receiving harassment over an anti-violence message. Ridley has previously deleted both her Twitter and Instagram, though only the Instagram returned.

Daisy Ridley was named the Breakout Star at the Teen Choice Awards last night, giving a shoutout to “her boy” John Boyega and debuting a new haircut. (Which could be for a non-Star Wars role, maybe The Lost Wife, as she’s mentioned being “employed again soon”.) Adam Driver wasn’t there, but he did win for Movie Villain for The Force Awakens.
