    Cool choice going with the teaser poster on the novel, I approve! And, actually, the teaser poster really sells the film thematically, maybe moreso than the regular posted.

    As it appears spoilers are appearing as to the ‘additional content’ - I say this loosely - in the novel are surfacing, let’s keep such information behind spoiler tags please.

    I’m very skeptical thus far, but see we will.

    You've wanted to know why the novelization isn't coming till March. You've wanted to know what's going to be different or what will be included. Your answers, via the Star Wars Show (video will start right where it needs to).



    (I'm sure the book trailer will be isolated as its own video eventually, for those interested)

    One version. Everything is "the expanded edition". You'll start to see images on retail sites update with the "expanded edition" name and picture soon.

    I guess I'll be the one to ask the question that is inevitably going to be asked a lot by a lot of people: Will the deleted and extra scenes be considered Canon?

    I'm still not sure wether the scene with Chewie pulling Unkar's arm off on Takodana in the TFA novel was meant to have actually happened or if it was in there because it was still in the movie when the book was finished.

    Of all the questions I ever get asked, questions about novelizations and canon are my least favorite.

    For me, only the scenes that have in the movie, but contradicts (telling with different ways, with different things), these for me, is not canon, the rest it's canon.

    One interesting test of that looks to be coming up with the Poe Dameron comic, since it is presumably going over the same ground ('How did Poe escape the crash in TFA?') currently explained in that novelisation. Guess we'll see if it drastically diverges!

    @DarthInternous

    Additional Ackbar content? Will I need to keep a box of tissues near by when I read this? :_|

    Yes, yes you will.

    Book contains cannon content about Ackbar.

    (Cannon because..... well, Ackbar go 'boom'. ... Too soon?)

    Well, I did say that their is probably additional Snoke details in the novel. Jason Fry is a great author. Maybe I'll pick up a copy.

    Not be a Pessimistic Panaka, but I seriously doubt there is. Nobody in charge seems to care about Snoke's background.

    It's nice that it seems like we'll get a bit more connective tissue between TFA and this. Since both 'Rose and Paige together' and Han's funeral were mentioned, I guess we'll get at least a chapter or two on D'Qar before the evacuation
