Del Rey Books is reprinting some great "Legends" / formerly EU titles with new covers over the next couple of years, starting with these.







Shatterpoint is probably my favorite prequel-era novel -

Of the books written after Phantom Menace, I wasn't a huge fan of Shatterpoint, but I remember it being good. The Darth Bane books where some of my favorites. There is one where Yoda tries to bring Dooku back over that's really good (can't remember the name). Maybe Labyrinth of Evil, though i don't think that's right.

Shatterpoint, Traitor, and Unifying Force are probably my favorite EU novels.

The Thrawn trilogy is my favorite trilogy. I may need to dig up my box of Star Wars novels now.

Dark Rendezvous is the Yoda/Dooku one and has great dialogue between them.

Labyrinth of Evil is sort of a wild goose chase right before the opening battle of ROTS but decent enough.

Does Talon Karrde show up in any other Legends novels besides the original Zahn trilogy?

Edit: I'm sure I've asked this multiple times on this thread in the past. Sorry.

Yeah I just read the Thrawn trilogy for the first time, and then got hooked, and read the second Thrawn ones too. He shows up there.

Two best things about that trilogy were Thrawn and Karrde.

Yeah. If you have never listened to it on Audible, the guy who does it, Marc Thompson, does an incredible job of voice acting. Plus they have all the theme music going on in the background.

I ride or die with the X-wing series, but I think Traitor is the best book in the EU.

The X-Wing series is good, I enjoy those, too.

I remember the dummy on AICN back in the day that was 100% convinced Kitster grew up to be Boba Fett, hence the name "Slave I" on the ship.

The real-life Kitster by comparison.



And now I'm down the wormhole of TPM promo pics. Thanks Google.



If I was Jake Loyd I would have had this image cropped and blown up to cover every wall of my room.

He's definitely had some tough years. We're probably all lucky TPM came out in 1999 instead of 2009 when the Internet had really started turning into a hellhole. Getting cast as the most famous character in the most famous movies of all time when you're that young seems just really tough to keep any kind of perspective.

My daughters are the same age he was at the time the movie was filming. I can't imagine either of them put through the scrutiny that being in that movie put Jake through at such a young age.

This is great. I love the Mandalorian studio technology, but Star Wars always looks its best when it goes with practical effects.

About time Star Wars got back to Tatooine!

Couldn't agree with this more.

I agree too...but to be fair, that actually looks to me like the set where mando found the skinny dude with fets armor.

I'm also assuming the Kenobi series will be centrally focused on Tatooine (one location) as opposed to Mando which is all over the galaxy.

Much easier to do practical effects for one location.

The one thing I really want to see more than anything in this series is for Obi-Wan to struggle with what's happened. Some sort of PTSD. In the events of ROTS, there are a couple of moments where you can tell he's on the edge of breaking down - seeing Anakin killing the younglings on hologram - but I want more.

Also, I would have really loved an alternate take from when he and Yoda are watching Sidious and Vader on the hologram and Yoda says: "Destroy the Sith, we must."
Obi-Wan replies with "Send me to kill the Emperor, I will not kill Anakin, he's like my brother."

Yoda should respond.
"Sounds good, that does. Much more powerful, the Emperor is. Kick my ass, he probably would."

I had a little bit of interest in this but now I am looking forward to it. But I do feel like I have been burned too many times.

But how many times were you burned by Ewan McGregor?

So a Luke/Jedi training show, starring Sebastian Stan, with Grogu, and bunch of other trainees, that ultimately ends with the arrival a young Kylo Ren...
