Star Wars authors came together at New York Comic Con to talk about their professional experiences, from their writing process to the fan reception.

Some of the biggest and best Star Wars authors such as Timothy Zahn (Heir to the Empire, Thrawn), Chuck Wendig (Aftermath, Life Debt), Jim Luceno (Tarkin, Catalyst), E.K. Johnston (Ahsoka), and Charles Soule (Lando, Obi-Wan & Anakin, Poe Dameron), will be on hand to discuss their approach, process, and reception to writing stories set in a galaxy far, far away. Plus, exclusive sneak peeks into the future of Star Wars publishing, and more! Moderated by Lucasfilm’s Michael Siglain and Jennifer Heddle.

The panel also unveiled forthcoming titles related to the upcoming movie Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, such as a young adult novel focusing on Jyn Erso, written by Beth Revis. Additionally, there will be a middle grade novel featuring Baze and Chirrut, written by Greg Rucka.
