New Star Wars Novel Announced Titled “Kenobi”

Today at the Del Rey panel from New York Comic Con, two new Star Wars novels were announced, including a new Han Solo book. But the announcement that’s really exciting, is a new book about Obi Wan titled “Kenobi,” which will take place not too long after “Revenge Of The Sith.” Here is a description of the new book from author John Jackson Miller’s blog:

At New York Comic-Con, Random House/Del Rey announced my next novel — and it’s big: Star Wars: Kenobi! It’s a hardcover release for late 2013.

Kenobi is a sweeping story that’s part epic western, part high-stakes drama, part romance — but it’s all Star Wars, taking place in the early days of Obi-Wan’s exile to Tatooine. I shouldn’t expand too much beyond what Random House said on its panel and Facebook page, but I can say this. I’ve been working on this concept for years — I’ll talk more about that process later on — and the basics are pretty simple. The greatest hero in the galaxy faces his toughest challenge yet: He must stop being Obi-Wan — and become Crazy Old Ben.

Now I haven’t read every Star Wars EU novel, but this news has got me really excited, as I can’t wait to read a new story about Obi Wan during this time period!
