Christie Golden said today that it “may or may not happen (don’t know yet.)”
The comments seem to be on a friendslocked post, and I debated over posting it… But it’s already out there, and fans really want to know about this trilogy.
In light of the upcoming sequel films, the status of the existing post-ROTJ storylines has been in question. Everything released since July’s Crucible has been set during ‘safer’ eras of the saga, during and between the first trilogies. It seems that LucasBooks has adapted a ‘wait and see’ method as regards the post-ROTJ releases that were announced before the Disney/sequel trilogy plans were made public. And with comments like this – and the Essential Characters cancellation – I don’t expect us to get any official info regarding these books anytime soon.
Here’s the thing: The Disney deal and announcement of the new movies is a big deal. I’m on standby at the moment. That’s about all I can say. :-/
If it’s had an effect on Kemp – who has generally stayed away from movie characters – could it be a factor in why we haven’t heard much about Sword of the Jedi as well? Note that nothing that has been scheduled – aside from next week’s Crucible – is set any later than Empire. We knew this was a possibility, so stay tuned… (via)
Well, here’s the big news out of New York Comic Con: John Jackson Miller is moving up to the big leagues with a post-Revenge of the Sith novel tentatively titled Kenobi. And the Rebels series announced at CVI continues with a Han Solo novel from new-to-the-EU author James S. A. Correy, aka Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, whose Leviathan Wakes was recently nominated for a Hugo. They’re a big get for Del Rey!
