What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, than with the announcement of a brand new original novel, Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel, from author Beth Revis arriving this summer. 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.

It seems we will finally get a look at the wedding between the two heroes of the Rebellion. Author Beth Revis describes it as, “I don’t want to spoil anything as the wedding is possibly my favorite scene of the whole book, but I will say that when Ewoks are involved, nothing ever goes to plan!”

Star Wars: The Princess and the Scoundrel arrives August 16 and is available for pre-order now. Start counting down the days now, for the wedding of the millennium…
