Podcast Stardust #241: Yet More Thrawn and an Epic Star Wars Poem

by Podcast Stardust

Star Wars books are big in the news this week with the announcement of a Star Wars epic poem, Thrawn Ascendancy: Lesser Evil, and the Essential Legends Collection.

Publishing comes to the forefront in this week’s Star Wars news. First, however, we congratulate The Mandalorian, on its many awards from the past week. Next, we get to the first publishing story concerning Star Wars getting the epic poem treatment. From there, we cover the announcement of the final book in the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy and discuss the Essential Legends Collection. 2021 is shaping up as a great year for fans of Star Wars literature.

On this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust, we discuss:

  • Droids being added to the Star Wars Vintage Collection on Disney+,
  • The Mandalorian collecting industry awards for special effects and more,
  • The announcement of Jack Mitchell’s The Odyssey of Star Wars – An Epic Poem,
  • The final book in the Thrawn Ascendancy trilogy: Lesser Evil,
  • The upcoming Essential Legends Collection (featuring Darth Bane!), and
  • A delay to LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.
