One of the most recent announcements from the NYCC Del Rey Panel. Tentatively titled Kenobi, this will be a novel focusing on Obi-Wan Kenobi sometime after the events of Revenge of the Sith. It'll be written by John Jackson Miller (Knight Errant, Lost Tribe of the Sith, Knights of the Old Republic). Personally I think that the almost 20 some years between ROTS and A New Hope has always been an interesting time period, save for the crazy and ridiculously overpowered Force User running around every now and again. But what do we know about good old Ben and what he was up to during this time? He watched Luke for the most part, helped out Ferus a bit, and dueled the future Darth Krayt. For the most part that's almost 2 decades where he could've been getting up to any number of crazy adventures. This is just a promotional image, but he's clearly on Tatooine. So assuming the novel's just set there, what could he possibly be doing that'd be enough for a novel? I personally find it a little hard to believe he'd do anything except watch Luke if he was on that planet, however he is still a Jedi. If he saw people in danger he'd help. So perhaps it'll have something to do with the slave trade on the planet, or the Hutts, or hell maybe even the Tuskens. (Though i'm not sure how that'd play out with A'Shared being on the planet as well at some point, though it could work) Regardless I personally think this is a novel that has been a long time coming. Obi-Wan's one of the best characters in the series and one of the greatest Jedi of all time. Its about time we found out what he was really doing in his later years besides watching the future Grandmaster of the New Jedi Order. Thoughts?
