    Both referring to German releases, so expect US releases earlier. I once had a February date for Padmé and a May 25 date for Han Solo - unsurprisingly.

    I guess Claudia Gray will probably write this one since she also did Both Leia as a teenager and an adult.

    I would love to see more Padme as Queen of Naboo stories.

    So, will the novel be pre-TPM, Post TPM-Pre AOTC or during the Clone Wars?

    About time! Padmé has been the most underutilized main character in the entire SW saga.

    Plenty of scope here for a solid novel. By it's YA tag, that tends to lend itself to some form of romantic line, at least so far in the SW novels, we could get pre AOTC ,pre-anakin interest maybe!

    I'm hoping its pre TPM during her time with the apprentice legislature. A great opportunity for mirroring with her daughters future experience.
    Plus it's such an underutilized time in Star Wars, even in legends.

    Hopefully she won't get overshadowed by another character in her own novel.

    Hopefully it spans the entirety of the prequel era. I’d love to see Padme’s POV on Mustafar, but I’m also really interested in her life between TPM and AOTC.

    IF this Padme novel is a real thing, I really hope it includes a framing story in which Luke and Leia learn about her finally. It's been hinted at in canon, and we deserve to see that moment. And we deserve way better than what we got in Dark Nest. :p

    I think being part of Panini Germany's 2018 catalogue basically confirms it. Question is more like when?

    If we're unlucky, this will be yet another story set during the Clone Wars.
    If we're lucky, it will be either pre-TPM or in the time span between TPM and AOTC.

    I'm so excited. I'm hoping its Padme leading her team of handmaidens through an adventure. Give a few of those girls characters.

    Good deal. And if for nothing else just to make her feel more relateable. Padme was horribly developed in the prequels and while TCW didn't make her character any worse the show also didn't go out of its way to improve her characterization like it did for Anakin.

    Given the past record of the new stuff, there's nothing stopping it being all four!

    That would be quite cool.

    Great news! I hope its set before TPM with a young Padme preparing to take the throne or in her early days of ruling. Perhaps having an adventure with her Handmaidens like a cool girl gang.

    A few years ago I might have doubted a new canon Padmé novel would ever be released. This is wonderful news and an instant purchase. :)
