    Look up the Wook article. They redesigned them for TLJ and were in a deleted scene of some sort.

    I finished his story last night. All I gotta say is (story spoilers):
    Lexo Sooger > Boba Fett
    You want angsty narcissistic drama? Call Boba Fett. You want someone dead on short order? Call Lexo Sooger. Dude gets **** done and is a lot smarter about it. Also charges less.

    I refer you to my earlier post on the matter.

    (It’s still a good pin)

    Interesting. I've seen it several times and have still missed a ton of the characters from the book. I'm assuming that the three you are referring to are Kedpin, Sooger, and the big boss guy since they were in the spa cut scene? Did the alien twins from outside the galaxy make it in? How about the wine seller or the assassin from Kedpin's story? I just saw today that the woman on the ship in the establishing shot was the club owner - I had pictured her quite differently in my head. (I was also bummed that there were classic aliens in the book and none in the film but I suppose that was to be expected after TFA.)

    Somehow I missed out on that pin. What a cool promo! I even had the book preordered (though from a local bookstore, so I'm not sure if that would have worked anyway). In the future, if you do more of these promotions, where would be a good place to watch for information on them?

    She is in a bunch of different shots just chilling in the background. She must run around fast. You see her inside and also on the balcony when they first look at the track.

    Keep an eye out when the fathiers are running through the streets near the end of the city portion of the chase sequence.

    The pin was frequently promoted on all the Del Rey Star Wars social media platforms (facebook, twitter, instagram) and as part of several of our Star Wars newsletter blasts in the month and weeks before the book release. Those are always your best resources for finding out about exclusive items, giveaways, pre-order rewards, etc. People are generally good about cross-posting those things to forums like this one, but I wouldn't rely on that.

    Am currently listening to the audiobook, and really enjoying this. I love the decision with this and FACPOV to go with different narrators for the different stories too, much as I always enjoy the dulcet tones of Mark Thompson (and, more recently, January LaVoy)

    Did either of you read the book? The Grammus sisters claim to be from another dimension, and the titular "Wine in Dreams" is supposed to be a wine from that dimension. When sommelier Derla Pidys tastes the wine she thinks it's full of familiar tastes and there's no way it could be from another dimension, and that this is just something the Grammus sisters claim about themselves to make them seem more exotic and interesting.

    On the other hand, I feel there was an implied possibility that the reason the wine brings up such familiar tastes is because of its otherworldly origins - it's what each drinker wants it to be or some such. Derla's a somewhat cynical type; I think the story intentionally left things ambiguous.

    BINGO. It's a story about stories, and what people are willing/want to believe. The truth is irrelevant.

    (Personal thought - not canon/not official/don't update the Wook pages with this nonsense - the sisters are not extra dimensional, but come from a planet so remote and rarely visited that it is functionally indistinct from being another dimension.)
