It has been a fantastic few weeks for fans of Han Solo and Leia Organa.

It started a few days ago when Lucasfilm Publishing Creative Director Michael Siglain had some big news to share on Twitter. The Star Wars novel The Princess and the Scoundrel by Beth Revis debuted on the New York Times Best Sellers list. This is another win for the company following a long line of Star Wars books reaching this goal.

Then things got better yesterday as Variety shared the first look at the concept art by Tara Phillips of Leia’s wedding dress.

I love the details of Leia’s dress, especially the flowers. It feels reminiscent of Padmé’s yellow flower dress that she wore when romanced by Anakin in Attack of the Clones. It also feels like an homage to the flowers in Padmé’s hair at her funeral. Personally, I adore Leia’s boots too. It’s a bold choice that is a wonderful detail. She is still General Organa. Leia would absolutely wear boots to her wedding.

The Princess and the Scoundrel takes place after Return of the Jedi as the galaxy is still healing from the Galactic Civil War. The book follows the wedding and honeymoon of Han and Leia as they travel on the galactic starcruiser, the Halcyon. If that sounds familiar, it’s the very ship that visitors can stay at in Disney World in Florida. The synopsis from Penguin Random House states:

"“The Death Star is destroyed. Darth Vader is dead. The Empire is desolate. But on the forest moon of Endor, among the chaos of a changing galaxy, time stands still for a princess and her scoundrel.After being frozen in carbonite, then risking everything for the Rebellion, Han is eager to stop living his life for other people. He and Leia have earned their future together, a thousand times over. And when he proposes to Leia, it’s the first time in a long time he’s had a good feeling about this. For Leia, a lifetime of fighting doesn’t seem truly over. There is work still to do, penance to pay for the dark secret that she now knows runs through her veins. Her brother, Luke, is offering her that chance—one that comes with family and the promise of the Force. But when Han asks her to marry him, Leia finds her answer immediately on her lips . . . Yes.Yet happily ever after doesn’t come easily. As soon as Han and Leia depart their idyllic ceremony for their honeymoon, they find themselves on the grandest and most glamorous stage of all: the Halcyon, a luxury vessel on a very public journey to the most wondrous worlds in the galaxy. Their marriage, and the peace and prosperity it represents, are a lightning rod for all—including Imperial remnants still clinging to power.Facing their most desperate hour, the soldiers of the Empire have dispersed across the galaxy, retrenching on isolated planets vulnerable to their influence. As the Halcyon travels from world to world, one thing becomes abundantly clear: The war is not over. But as danger draws closer, Han and Leia find that they fight their best battles not alone, but as husband and wife.”"

It really is a great time to be a fan of Han and Leia.
