On top of the many “Journey to The Last Jedi” content we will be getting this year, there are a few more companion books to look for this fall. This information comes from the Star Wars profile on Amazon.com and Jedi-Bibliothek. A little preview: one might feature a first order version of a Tie Bomber that will later be shown in The Last Jedi!
After combing through the sources, here is a summary lineup of the books to be released:
“Star Wars VIII: Movie Theater Storybook & Movie Projector®” (12/15/2017) – $12.26 – Amazon.com
“Star Wars VIII Replica: TBD (Replica Journal)” (12/12/2017) – $7.35 – Amazon.com
“Star Wars: The Resistance” (10/3/2017) – $7.35 – Amazon.com
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi: The Journey Continues” (3/27/2018) – $11.99 – Jedi-Bilbiothek
Jedi-Bibliothek makes a connection that the “Replica:TBD” book is actually called “Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Bomber Command.” They theorize that this book will be the one to show us how The FO TIE Bomber will look in Episode VIII. I don’t doubt we will see this type of ship. We have already seen what is essentially a TIE Advanced piloted by Kylo Ren (see below). I wonder if we will get a glimpse of this type of ship sooner than the release of this book. Perhaps we’ll see it in a future trailer? Seeing that and Kylo’s fighter in action will surely be a sight to see!
