    In case anyone hasn't heard, Disney has been working on tie-in comics and books that relate to Galaxy's Edge.

    First, Batuu makes its debut in Thrawn: Alliances, which is the second book in a trilogy by Timothy Zahn about Grand Admiral Thrawn. This book was released in July 2018.

    There is also a 5-issue comic miniseries called Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which will start publishing this April, 2019. One of the main characters in this miniseries is Dok-Ondar, an Ithorian antique collector first mentioned in Solo: A Star Wars Story

    A Crash of Fate is a YA novel by Zoraida Cordova, about two childhood friends from Batuu. This is released August 6th.

    Then there's the novel Black Spire, written by Delilah S. Dawson, which takes place sometime during the sequel trilogy. That comes out September 3rd.

    Finally is a collection of stories called Star Wars: Myths and Fables, which will include two stories about Batuu. It comes out August 6th as well.

    There is also a yet-to-be-announced kids comic from IDW Publishing coming this fall.

    Nice thread!

    Recently released “Star Wars: Pirate’s Price” by Lou Anders also mentions Batuu and heavily features Hondo Ohnaka

    Forgot about that one! In fact, some people are speculating that Hondo is the one who hires you to fly the Falcon in the park.

    The "Flight of the Falcon" mini-series within the Star Wars Adventures kid comics is leading to Batuu. The plotline is someone tracking down the Falcon and the story is leading to Batuu AND Hondo the pirate..
