Star Wars: Shadow Games Cover/Blurb

UPDATE:

I asked Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff who the person is on the cover. She replied…

Well, that’s the cool thing — it could be either Dash Rendar or Han Solo given the context. Clever of the art department, I think.

—————

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

Javul Charn is the most famous pop star in the galaxy — and the runaway bride of a violent lieutenant in Black Sun, the crime syndicate commanded by Prince Xizor. Or so Javul says. Soon after Dash Rendar, broke and desperate, agrees to be Javul’s bodyguard, he realizes that openness is not her strong suit — and that murder is stalking her tour.

Between the discovery of dead bodies in a cargo hold and an attack by an unidentified warship, Dash and co-pilot Eaden Vrill desperately try to understand who is terrorizing Javul’s tour and why. When Han Solo suddenly joins Javul’s road show, the stakes are raised even higher. Now Dash, who has a history with Han and an even worse history with Prince Xizor, follows his instincts, his discoveries, and Javul herself — straight into a world that may be too dangerous to survive!

Star Wars: Shadow Games is due to be released November 29, 2011.

Lost Tribe Of The Sith 6: SENTINEL

(2.21.11)

The description has been released…

Cast into slavery by the machinations of the Sith, Ori Kitai believes she’s found her way back into the Lost Tribe — and perhaps a whole lot more. Ori’s discovery of a second starship gives her the opportunity to avenge the humiliations heaped on her family by the decrepit Grand Lord. Indeed, she could turn their entire society upside down — offering escape from their planetary prison. But Ori encounters resistance from a surprising person: the seemingly humble farmer who took her in: a man with a secret past and an agenda of his own. He cannot allow Ori Kitai to unleash the Lost Tribe on an unsuspecting galaxy. But how can he stop the woman he loves without destroying them both?

You can download SENTINEL over at Starwars.com

    Well, it wouldn’t be a Star Wars adventure without Darth Vader. The Dark Lord of the Sith will be accompanied by legions of stormtroopers and some new “skytroopers,” designed especially for our show. Boba Fett, everyone’s favorite bounty hunter, also will be after us, as well as an assortment of nasty droids and creatures.

    Balancing out the villains are some classic good guys – and even a princess! Master Yoda, Admiral Ackbar (pictured above in a still image from “Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi”) and Princess Leia will appear in the show to help guide our adventures. We may even run into Chewbacca along the way!

  • With a whole new ride comes a whole new main character – 3PO! It was announced today that the iconic droid will be at the controls… but that actually doesn’t sound very comforting, or safe. Awesome! [Link]

    I thought this was amusing…

    our initial plans were for our flight to be piloted by AC-38 better known as “Ace.” However, in discussions with George Lucas during the course of our production, we decided to take the story in a very different direction.

    But of course, George. But of course. :)

    This week, our Imagineering team begins installation of the Audio-Animatronics figures into the Starspeeder cabins at Disneyland park, and next month at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

    The rides are scheduled to open the middle of next year.
