Star Wars, since its inception, has had an affinity with trios and more commonly trilogies. Recently while listening to some audiobooks at work (how lucky am I?) I realized just how many trilogies of Star Wars material appear together and are able to be put together. Obviously there are the original trilogy, prequel trilogy, and now the sequel trilogy of films, but there are plenty of other trilogies that can be put together to create their own story arcs. I’ll go through some of the ones that are more commonly known of while exploring a few I put together on my own.
“One fighter with a sharp stick and nothing to lose can win the day!” is an absolute statement from Saw Gerrera passed down to his cadre of followers, including Jyn Erso. In the wake of other releases in recent weeks, the audiobook Rebel Rising by Beth Revis was released this week, somewhat under the radar. To be honest, I did not even know this book was going to be released, but when I discovered it had been published, I went right to reading/listening. One thing is for sure, we know a lot more about the growing up years of Jyn due to the telling of this story.
The audiobook is shorter than your typical run time probably due to the fact that this is meant for a younger audience. The content, however, is far from safe and youthful. This book is pretty dark and covers the time between when Jyn Erso was picked up by Saw Gerrera and the moment she was rescued from the prison by the rebellion. The narrator, Rebecca Soler, was a great choice for this novel because of the fact that she is able to perform a great Jyn style voice. She has also narrated many books in this particular genre.
NEW NOVELS REBEL RISING AND GUARDIANS OF THE WHILLS WILL EXPLORE ROGUE ONE BACKSTORIES
FIRST DETAILS ON NEW STORIES STARRING THREE HEROES FROM ROGUE ONE.
Jyn Erso, Chirrut Îmwe, and Baze Malbus. Vastly different people who came together, along with some other new friends, to change the galaxy. After their heroics in Rogue One, they’ve become fan favorites — and we’re going to learn a lot more about them in two new books coming May 2.
Rebel Rising, a young adult novel from New York Times Bestselling author Beth Davis, will dive into Jyn’s backstory, exploring her time with the extremist rebel Saw Gerrera and how it shaped the woman she’d become. Rogue One hinted at the once-close relationship between Saw and Jyn, which was ultimately fractured. Rebel Rising promises to be our first real look into what happened between the two, good times and bad. Check out the official description and cover below.
