Solo: A Star Wars Story has been out for two weeks now, but where is the film’s novelization adaptation? Did they forget about it?
Where is the Solo: A Star Wars Story novelization?
For years, Star Wars films and their book adaptations have gone hand in hand. I remember when leaving the premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I turned my phone on to the notification that its novelization had dropped. I was ecstatic and stayed up all night reading it.
However, Star Wars: The Last Jedi changed that trend, with Solo: A Star Wars Story the following suit, with the novel nowhere in sight the same day the movie dropped in theatres. Speaking of which, where in the galaxy is the novelization for Solo: A Star Wars Story?
Did the boycotters win? Are they just giving up on releasing more Star Wars stories? Or, did Lucasfilm fall asleep behind the wheel of the Falcon and forget to have someone write one?
Fear not, hardcore fans. The novelization for Solo: A Star Wars Story is on the way, you’ll just have to wait until the summer is over to do so.
What’s the hold-up, Lucasfilm? Why are you making us wait? I understand it’s important to make sure the author and the final variation of the film are in synch, but waiting three-four months is ridiculous.
During the initial Disney merger, Lucasfilm hit it out of the park with their novelizations in regards to content, story arcs, and timing of the release. Now, it appears they are being very careful with what is released and providing a mixed bag of quality — some of the stories watered down a bit.
I suppose in the meantime we’ll have to watch Solo: A Star Wars Story in theatres and dig into the Legends vault to receive our Han Solo adventure stories.
Solo: A Star Wars Story is playing in theaters, worldwide.
