    Now to get the Yuuzhan Vong back into canon.

    I wonder how he's going to fit into the new canon, especially with the events of the Aftermath Trilogy, unless this is going to take place before or during the OT.

    I don't think anyone understands Thrawn better than Zahn. I mean, 8 of his Star Wars novels either had Thrawn, or the stories were affected by his legacy. And that's not to mention the short stories involving Thrawn either.

    Rebels season 3 is still three years before ANH. In New canon he may die before the end of the OT. Who knows.

    I wonder how he interacts with Sheevie and maybe Snokie...

    And where he will be around Rogue One? So many things, I live for Star Wars! This with the Ashoka book is everything I want now until E8 comes.

    I could not be happier with this! LFL did the right move to bring Zahn. I wish they consulted with Ostrander for Quinlan Vos, but it seems like they learned from their mistake. I cannot wait for this book and Rebels S3.

    I am freaking out. Fangirling so hard. Disney finally - FINALLY - did something right. Super right! We have a Luceno book coming out then a Zahn book
    It's a beautiful cover and it can only be fantastic. I'm really looking forward to seeing what Zahn else brings back to the canon.

    I'm so glad they are bringing back so much Legends material, and letting talented writers like Zahn and Luceno bring their A-game to the new canon! =D=

    Where are you getting the info that another Luceno book is coming out? Or are you just referring to the Tarkin book that came out a couple years ago?

    Edit...oh ok I got it after looking at the del rey site. He's doing Catalyst.

    He's writing the Rogue One novel tie-in: Catalyst. It was just announced today.

    Not to be a party-pooper but: People say the last SW-books by him weren't so hot. So why should this book be?

    You mean Luceno or Zahn? If you are referring to the Tarkin book that Luceno did I think a lot of that just came because people were still bitter about the reboot at that point and hadn't yet gotten into the new canon.

    No, I was talking about Zahn. I wasn't aware of a huge backlash against Luceno.
