A new book exploring the secret history of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is set to be released August 27th, and today Disney revealed the cover art and talked even more about the adventures set on the planet of Batuu.
Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire, by best selling author Delilah S. Dawson, tells the story of General Leia Organa and Vi Moradi, her top spy.
After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and Vi may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.
Batuu is a planet filled with lush forests, mountains, and petrified trees that tower over the landscape. It’s set in the furthest parts of the galactic map, and is the last settled world before reaching Wild Space. The residents of the Black Spire Outpost, the largest settlement in Batuu, include rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who chose to make their living in the far reaches of the galaxy to avoid prying eyes.
Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.
Vi has to ingratiate herself to the “scum and villainy” that call Black Spire home in order to survive. She embarks on her mission along with her droid and a traitorous stormtrooper in an effort to “spark the fire of resistance on Batuu–before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.
