    Since AND is now officially out as a prerelease book, all spoilers MUST be spoiler-tagged until the book is released in September. It's a pain in the butt, but it's courtesy. As a reminder, spoilers are tagged using [ spoiler]spoilers go here[/spoiler] (sans the leading space, of course).

    Please do not use the [ spoiler=(description of spoiler here)] method because that does not work on tapatalk.

    JJM! JJM! JJM!

    And I like the cover, especially the SD, TIEs and Stormtroopers.

    Hrm they tried to make them more realistic but still look quite cartoony, should have used models to make the painting.

    Yeah I'm grumpy.

    But JJM, cool!

    Balls. Arse. Frak. Bastard. Gits. Pillocks. Frelling hell..... You know what this means, right?

    That cover + JJM = Buy.

    And it's such a perfect title for both story and OOU reasons. It's awesome! :D

    I'm not a fan of the new Legends stuff but Rebels looks really good and I quite like JJM's work so I'm not going to let all that sour my views. I'll still look forward to this book.

    And EU before ROTJ still exists. So that means JJM can reference it to his hearts content.

    Yep. I'll except we'll have a lot of obscure EU stuff "canonized" in this book.

    Well hey, at least they're keeping it in-universe as some kind of stories/legends instead of just saying "yup, that stuff not only never happened but it was just a figment of your imagination." At least this way we can say NJO was a horror story told by Wedge to Han and Leia's new kid(s) while he was babysitting one night, or something like that.

    You better have them bump into a lost and confused 3PO (who is running Star Tours), just so I can confirm that Droids still happens, JJM. ;)

    On the other hand... feel free to randomly kill off Starkiller in this book so we get that mess out of the way now...

    He could always reference a certain prophecy from a certain comic he wrote set in a certain era long before this where a certain Jedi foresaw a certain Skywalker in the distant future. :p

    I feel like JJM will try to use (shoehorn) material from his novels.

    This sounds the least interesting of the four novels announced, but I expect good things from JJM.

    Is there anyone you don't think will try that?
