Out Tuesday is Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, the final book in the new canon’s first trilogy. The Norra Wexley and Rae Sloane double-sided poster are exclusive to the Barnes & Noble hardcover.
StarWars.com has our second excerpt from Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath: Empire’s End, featuring Han and a very pregnant Leia. (The first was our check-in with Lando.)
