Who needs a theme park? Galaxy’s Edge has a full-fledged publishing program

Yes, there’s even more Galaxy’s Edge content coming, because we live in a world where even tie-in theme parks have fiction tie-ins, and I give up. This is how we live now.

In addition to the already-announced comic, there’s Black Spire from Del Rey, a sequel-trilogy era novel by Phasma author Delilah S. Dawson.

In this novel, a prequel to the Disney Parks experience, General Leia Organa dispatches her top spy to Batuu in a desperate search for Resistance allies.

Some are theorizing that said spy could be Phasma’s Vi Moradi, and Dawson did retweet this, so perhaps…

(She’s also working on a storybook called The Skywalker Saga with artist Brian Rood. And she did a thread on writing for brands like Star Wars.)

Back to Galaxy’s Edge, there’s also A Crash of Fate, a young adult novel by Zoraida Córdova, and middle reader Star Wars: Myths & Fables by George Mann with illustrations by Grant Griffin. That one only features two Batuu stories, and there’s an excerpt of the Tatooine-set story “The Knight & the Dragon” at the link.

Anther comic (this time from IDW) and a cookbook are also in the works. A Crash of Fate and Myths & Fables drop August 6, while Black Spire is out September 3.

Even more Batuu coming in Galaxy’s Edge comic

Galaxy’s Edge isn’t even open yet and I’m starting to get a little Batuu fatigue. The latest entry in pimping the upcoming Star Wars theme parks at Disneyland and Disney World is a Marvel comic series. Galaxy’s Edge will be a five-issue minseries written by Ethan Sacks with art from Will Sliney and covers by Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm artists. The Ithorian is Dok-Ondar, a “collector of rare antiquities,” was designed by Karl Lindberg and Iain McCaig.

The series launches in April, while the first of the parks to open will be Disneyland’s, in June.
