    With Solo right around the corner, I find it odd that the movie novelization hasn't been announced yet. It definitely exists because Brazil listed it as coming in August, and their is a German listing for it on Amazon and jedibibliothek.

    I wonder whose writing it?

    Who would you want to write it? I am hoping for Freed or Ahmed

    Oh, I'd love to see L. Neil Smith get a crack at it.

    I see Amazon UK and Amazon DE both list a junior novelization for September, but no author has been given for that yet either, AFAIK.

    Luceno did write a better Han than any surviving SW author.

    Juuuuuuust sayin'.

    Stormtrooper: "Hands up!"

    Han: "Am I being detained?"

    ... Huh, I thought I'd be able to come up with a better libertarian joke than that. Oh well I tried.

    Now the official German listing has been released for it on jedibibliothek. It comes in at 400 pages, and is said to be published in July. Where the heck is the American announcement. Solo is almost exactly a month away!!

    I am surprised we haven't heard anything about a US release for any adaptation for Solo: A Star Wars Story novels (Junior or Adult).

    Amazon UK has a listing for the junior novel. No pic though. It says the book comes out Sep 6.

    Which will coinside with the Blu Ray release one would imagine
