L

ast year, Adam Christopher and Del Rey announced that an original novel related to The Mandalorian was in the works. Few details about the story emerged other than it was an original sequence of events rather than a novelization of the show’s first or second season.

Today it was announced that this book and additional related publications surrounding The Mandalorian has been canceled.

The Star Wars Books Twitter account broke the news to fans with the promise that there could still be a similar project slated for the future -- but nothing seems to be in the works currently.

“Due to the ever-expanding world of The Mandalorian, we will no longer be publishing THE MANDALORIAN ORIGINAL NOVEL at this time, as the story continues to unfold on screen,” the tweet reads.

Del Rey has made it clear, however, that they are already working with Christopher on another project to replace his canceled Star Wars book.

“We love working with author Adam Christopher and are already working with him on a different book. We’re excited to share details with you in the future.”

Christopher has not yet commented on the cancelation..

DK Books also announced the cancelation of The Mandalorian Ultimate Visual Guide in a tweet shortly after Del Rey’s original post.

It’s unclear exactly why these materials are no longer in production, but Del Rey’s tweet implies that as the story of The Mandalorian continues to unfold, more opportunities may arise for written storytelling in the Expanded Universe beyond the screen.

While it may be disappointing to hear these projects are no more, there’s still plenty of material out there to enjoy if you’re been craving more Mandalorian backstory and lore -- even beyond the Disney+ series itself.

Our team has put together several reading collections focused specifically on both The Mandalorian show as well as Mandalorians as a whole. Here you’ll find lists of books and comics to quench your curiosity about Mandalorian history and culture.

You can also still purchase The Art of Star Wars: The Mandalorian book released last year for stunning visuals from the show’s beginnings.
