Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo has uncovered the prequel books for Star Wars: The Force Awakens joined thoughts from Rian Johnson. Star Wars might be most popular as one of the greatest film establishments ever, however in truth, its considerably greater than that – it’s one of the most critical transmedia establishments on the planet, with stories clearing starting with one medium then onto the next. This is a tradition of the old Expanded Universe, which saw Star Wars embrace the capability of books, funnies, and PC games in the decade prior to the prequel set of three’s delivery.
In a captivating conversation on Twitter, Lucasfilm’s Pablo Hidalgo has uncovered the story beats of Bloodline didn’t start with Star Wars: The Force Awakens chief J.J. Abrams, but instead with Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s Rian Johnson. As Hidalgo clarifies, eventually during creation, a producer is reached by the establishment side of Lucasfilm with thoughts for connections. This before long sets up what Hidalgo calls “monitor rails” – things that are to be stayed away from – and real freedoms. Johnson had outlined out what he thought occurred between the finish of Return of the Jedi and the start of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and a piece of that turned into the plot of Claudia Gray’s original Bloodline.

Bloodline is by and large viewed as one of the most amazing Star Wars books of the Disney time, and Claudia Gray has proceeded to compose a few additional books for Lucasfilm – including a portion of their most significant connections. Her solid handle of Princess Leia drove her to be charged to compose Leia: Princess of Alderaan, the authority story of how Leia originally joined the Rebellion, and Master and Apprentice – a story featuring Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi – at last uncovered the text of the Chosen One prediction.

The best transmedia mission to date went with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, with James Luceno’s connection novel Catalyst and Alexander Freed’s novelization flawlessly supplementing the film and giving a total history of the Death Star’s development. In the mean time, Hidalgo noted J.J. Abrams and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker essayist, Chris Terrio, outlined out the no frills of what became Charles Soule’s connection funny, The Rise of Kylo Ren, which delivered in front of the last film in the continuation set of three and investigated Kylo Ren’s tumble to the clouded side. Apparently a comparable methodology is being taken to connections with the Disney+ TV shows also, given Lucasfilm is setting up various Star Wars books to tie in to The Mandalorian.
