The Star Wars Book: Expand Your Knowledge of a Galaxy Far, Far Away This one's now available in the UK, and I got my copy today. It's a nice little tome by Pablo Hidalgo, Cole Horton, and Dan Zehr, fairly basic in layout but I've noticed a few new titbits scattered throughout. I figured I'd mention a few here: Spoiler There's a galaxy map (using the background image from the TLJ/TROS Visual Dictionaries), though I don't see anything new on there. The Galaxy—the timeline claims the Resistance was formed in 29 ABY, which seems to be at odds with Bloodline in 28 ABY, whose events are also referenced. Superweapons—Momin now has the "Darth" title, as does Shaa later in the book. Cybernetics—Grievous's transformation takes place over an "extended period", rather than the one-and-done in Legends. The Jedi Order—dates of c.25,000 BBY for the founding of the Jedi (and later the formation of the Old Republic) and c.1,032 BBY for the Republic reformation, echoing other sources (but mostly Wookieepedia, I think). Interestingly, the High Republic era is pegged at c.300 to c.100 BBY, and later on the Starlight Station is stated to have launched in exactly 232 BBY, so the HR publishing program seems to be starting in the middle of the era. Also, Dooku's departure from the Order is dated to 42 BBY. Ahsoka Tano—confirmation that she and Sabine head into the Unknown Regions to find Ezra, which I think was assumed but not outright stated. The Sith Order—the era of Jedi/Sith conflicts begins in c.5,000 BBY. Darth Sidious—confirmed to have been destroyed "body and soul" in TROS. Snoke—confirmed to be a "genetic strandcast (artifical)" created by the resurrected Sidious -- so not prior to the rise of the Empire. He also has free will, though his actions and goals are orchestrated by Sidious. Snoke may not know his own nature. Anakin Skywalker—twice outright stated to be born on Tatooine despite his comment in TPM and Legends. The First Order—"The Imperial fleet survivors arrive at Parnassos" in 22 ABY. Dating for the Phasma novel? The First Order/Resistance War is the fairly uninspiring name for the conflict. Din Djarin—his home is Aq Vetina, though I think that refers to the settlement rather than the planet, since no homeworld is listed. He's taken in by "warriors carrying the mark of Death Watch" and receives an "orthodox Mandalorian upbringing so believes that he cannot ever take his helmet off in the company of another living being".
