It’s a big week for releases, at least by post/pre-movie standards: One novel re-release and three comics! On Tuesday, January 30, Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn is out in paperback. It has a sequel coming in July.
Newsarama has the Storms of Crait #1 preview pages. The comic is set during the original trilogy and will give some background on the planet we’ll see in the movie. (Crait also appeared in the Claudia Gray novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan.)
There’s also a great profile of Tran at Buzzfeed which is definitely worth a read. She talks about her background, Harry Potter, and Carrie Fisher in the gym. She teases that Rose has “has an interesting relationship with war.” She’s also one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen Talent picks.
There were also two big image reveals today: A new picture of Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo came as part of a quick profile in Elle, and the IMAX poster in USA Today.
