But do you know what we’re really thankful for?

Like really thankful for?

Book announcements, that’s what! And Disney Lucasfilm decided to celebrate the holiday season with just that. On yesterday’s Star Wars Show, Anthony Carboni and Andi Guitierrez announced another new book that will be gracing store shelves in 2020.

Queen’s Peril by E.K. Jonhnston.

This surprise prequel to Johnston’s Queen’s Shadow will follow Padmé and her original squad of handmaidens in the times before The Phantom Menace. In an exclusive interview with, Johnston discussed her love of the original six and her excitement at getting to write them again in vastly different situations than in the previous book. (a Backstreet Boys concert is me, it’s a great interview).
