The Rise of Skywalker novelization was recently released, and author Rae Carson did an incredible job at capturing the film in writing, while adding tons of fun details, helpful insights, and exciting answers.

Seven stories I would love to see now that the Star Wars sequel trilogy is over!

The Star Wars sequel trilogy concluded recently with The Rise of Skywalker, and I'm hoping that means that Lucasfilm will slowly but surely begin to fill in the gaps of the trilogy by more storytelling.

The third issue was recently released, and it's another success. If you [...]
