Sequel to Thrawn Novel and More Announced at NYCC
Lucasfilm publishing was back in the New York groove today. Executive editor of Lucasfilm Michael Siglain of Lucasfilm led a discussion at New York Comic Con featuring an all-star lineup of Star Wars writers: Timothy Zahn (Heir to the Empire, Thrawn), Delilah S. Dawson (Phasma), John Jackson Miller (A NewDawn), Claudia Gray (Lost Stars, Leia, Princess of Alderaan), Benjamin Acker (Join the Resistance), Jason Fry (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), and many more. They discussed how they discovered Star Wars, their favorite personal bits of Star Wars writing, and teased some upcoming projects — including Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn sequel, Alliance. Here’s a selection of insights from the authors, as well as the covers revealed.
Timothy Zahn on his approach to the newly announced Thrawn sequel: “I believe the title is going to be Alliances. But the really difficult part about something like this is, once you have done Thrawn in a book, where do you go from here? How do you up the game, what can you do to make it even better?”
Cue a photo of Vader from Rogue One.
“And just to make it clear, I’m not writing this book. I turned it in two and a half weeks ago.”
