NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Go beyond the film with a novelization featuring new scenes and expanded material.

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.

Praise for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

“One of the best movie adaptations yet.”Cinelinx

Rogue One bridged characters and elements of the prequels and original Star Wars trilogy in a visually stunning ride, but there are even more rich details hiding in the film’s novelization, [which] reveals and expands with inner monologues and character insights, political knots, and nuance.”—The Daily Dot

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story novelization deepens a tale of hope. . . . [Jyn Erso] proves to be even more fascinating here than she was in the movie.”—New York Daily News

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read for those who thought the film went by too quick! There's only so much you can put into a film before things are cut. This book is not only well written and paced, but it gives more insight into the motivation of the characters. Reading this book with Catalyst is a must!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Read For Fans of the Film I read this a couple days after watching the film and I consider it a good novelization. So of course, I think you should only read it if you liked the film (and maybe don't read this if you haven't seen it first) because while it does give you more detail and insight into the characters, it's not all that different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Pretty good. Follows the movie, but has a few added in parts which clear up some areas of confusion and give insight to the background and feelings of some characters. Can be a little fast-paced, and I would recommend watching the movie before reading the book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from so addicted Had to get this because I was thrilled by the movie. Interesting extra tidbits, but doesn't measure up to the previously canon expanded universe.
