It’s the most romantic day of the year, and in celebration of Valentine’s Day, a brand-new Star Wars novel has just been announced – Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel. Written by author Beth Revis (Rebel Rising), fans of the most iconic couple from a galaxy far, far away will finally have a chance to attend the wedding of Leia Organa and Han Solo.
“Set just after the events of ‘Star Wars: Return of the Jedi’, the story begins on the forest moon of Endor, where Han proposes in the elation of the rebel victory against the Empire. After a ceremony at the site of the victory celebration at the end of the film, the newlyweds depart for a honeymoon aboard the Halcyon starcruiser, the luxury vessel at the heart of the new Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser experience at Disney World Resort. In their most desperate hour, with the war still raging but the Empire nearing its last gasp, the couple must outwit the Imperial remnants clinging to power.”

Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel will arrive on shelves on August 16 and is available for pre-order now.
