[ Catalyst ]   CATALYST
James Luceno
Hardback Novel, e-Book and Unabridged Audio CD

This story begins approximately 20 years before A New Hope:
The Clone Wars are tearing the galaxy apart. For years the Republic and the Separatists have battled across the stars, each building more and more deadly technology in an attempt to win the war. As a member of Chancellor Palpatine’s top secret Death Star project, Orson Krennic is determined to develop a superweapon before their enemies can.

[ Rogue One ]   ROGUE ONE
Alexander Freed
e-Book & Unabridged Audio Book

Just before A New Hope:
As the shadows of the Empire loom ever larger across the galaxy, so do deeply troubling rumors. The Rebellion has learned of a sinister Imperial plot to bring entire worlds to their knees. Deep in Empire-dominated space, a machine of unimaginable destructive power is nearing completion. A weapon too terrifying to contemplate... and a threat that may be too great to overcome.
If the worlds at the Empire’s mercy stand any chance, it lies with an unlikely band of allies: Jyn Erso, a resourceful young woman seeking vengeance; Cassian Andor, a war-weary rebel commander; Bodhi Rook, a defector from the Empire’s military; Chirrut Îmwe, a blind holy man and his crack-shot companion, Baze Malbus; and K-2SO, a deadly Imperial droid turned against its former masters. In their hands rests the new hope that could turn the tide toward a crucial Rebellion victory—if only they can capture the plans to the Empire’s new weapon.
But even as they race toward their dangerous goal, the specter of their ultimate enemy—a monstrous world unto itself—darkens the skies. Waiting to herald the Empire’s brutal reign with a burst of annihilation worthy of its dreaded name: Death Star.

Beth Revis
YA Hardback Novel

When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents she is not completely alone—Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own, and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.
Jyn dedicates herself to the cause—and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in…and who she can really trust.

Baze and Chirrut used to be Guardians of the Whills, who looked after the Kyber Temple on Jedha and all those who worshipped there. Then the Empire came and took over the planet.

  [ Rogue One ]   MAKING ROGUE ONE: A BEHIND-THE-SCENES ORAL HISTORY
Josh Kushins
Hardback Reference Book

Rogue One marks not just the beginning of a new Star Wars story, but an entirely new approach to Star Wars storytelling: breaking away from the Skywalker saga and exploring new heroes, new tales, and new corners of the iconic “galaxy far, far away.” Featuring personal recollections and anecdotes from designers, creators, cast, and crew at all stages of production - as well as concept art and behind-the-scenes photos - this book offers an immersive look at Rogue One’s journey to the screen. From the early decision to spin stand-alone stories and the hiring of visionary director Gareth Edwards, to the triumphs and challenges of principal photography and the exciting innovations of Industrial Light & Magic’s post-production, Making Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the comprehensive oral history of this new film’s production.
