The second book in the Legacy of the Force series is Bloodlines by Karen Traviss. Sue Rostoni posted the info in her blog yesterday.
Legacy of the Force is the nine-book series that leads us into the ‘Legacy’ era, which takes place after the NJO and Dark Nest. We don’t know much about it, aside from what can be drawn from the titles, but we do know Boba Fett will be involved in (at least) Traviss’ portion. Check the coverage of the Legacy C3 Panel for more on ther series as a whole.
I’m sorry for not blogging the last few days of C3, but.. well. Busy is an understatement, and I’m saying this with a Volunteer badge. Most of the stuff from the EU panels is already out on the internet – I’d give you links now but I find working with touchpads a mild form of torture. When I return to the world of mice tomorrow I’ll get it together. However…
1. George Lucas. Not much new info, but that wasn’t really the point. He confirmed the whole TV show thing for the fifth or sixth time. (Is anyone still surprised?) but now we get details: Clone Wars will get to be a real boy (in 3D) and the live-action series will come about a year after that and be set between ROTS and ANH.
2. Legacy of Force, aka the post-NJO nine book series we’ve all heard about. There’s a metric ton about this on the internet already and I couldn’t possibly remember everything.
3. Timothy Zahn had a panel today – lots of obvious questions, but we did find out that his classic trilogy novel will be set right after ANH, involve both Luke and Mara but NOT together. NO THRAWN, praise the Emperor.
Saw the new footage again. Natalie Portman sure is getting a lot of mileage out of that one expression.
Is there more? Probably. But my brain has turned to mush.
Sue Rostoni has posted several items on the OS boards about the 9-book post NJO trilogy:
Expect to see — Star Wars. We very much want to go back to the pulp Space Opera feel of the original movies (as opposed to hard SciFi). The focus will be character-driven situations, set against a backdrop of perhaps not galactic proportions, but certainly providing opportunities for spectacular space battles and lots of lightsaber action. Expect to see the major characters (Skywalkers and Solos) and many of the minor characters (Jedi Knights), and some old favorites. And, hopefully, a lot of surprises.
And on Ben Skywalker:
He’ll be 13 when the series begins and one of the main characters.
Added bonus info – the name of Jim Luceno’s post-Episode 3 hardcover will be Star Wars: Dark Lord.
The third author of the post-NJO series will be Karen Traviss. She joins Aaron Allston and Troy Denning, whose involvement was announced at Comic Con. Some other bits of info: Allston will launch the series with a hardcover in June 2006, and Denning will end it with another hardcover in
According to theforce.net,it was announced at Comic Con that Aaron Allston and Troy Denning will be a part of the 9-book post-NJO novel series. Allston will have three books in 2006. No numbers for Denning are given, but he already has a trilogy in this time period set for next year.
