In May 1991, I was in line at a book store to pick up a copy of the new Star Wars book, Heir To The Empire by Timothy Zahn. This was the first new Star Wars content since 1983’s Return of the Jedi. I had never been so excited to buy a book. And this book was even better than I had hoped. Heir To The Empire is an amazing story that keep my love of Star Wars alive.
According to Geekosity, Disney+ is developing an adaption of Heir To The Empire. This adaption will not only adapt the original source data but also use this as a method to bring in all of the Disney+ Star Wars series set post Return of the Jedi into one movie. It is being compared to the first Avengers movie in bringing the different series together. That would mean they would bring in The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian, and Ahsoka.
It is expected that this movie would bring in two big characters from the books. We may see Grand Admiral Thrawn prior to The Heir To The Empire movie in the Ahsoka series. This movie should also introduce Mara Jade, the hand of the Emperor and future wife of Luke Skywalker (according to the books).
This is definitely exciting news.
