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

I love Star Wars and I would really like to watch all of the old movies like Return of the Empire or A New Hope. And it would be really appreciated if you could like this comment.

The author handles this adaptation of the film to novel form very well, sticking right with the flow of the movie, using characterization in a way that rings true with the performances of the actor and expanding things here and there. The occasional break between chapters that feature correspondence or journal entries from some of the characters are a good touch.

This was an excellent novelization of an excellent movie, and good for getting inside the characters' heads. If you're a bit of a star wars geek, like me, it's good for catching things you missed in the movie.

The Rogue One novelization follows the movie exactly. I liked how this book expanded on things that were unclear in the movie, and I liked how each of the characters were developed better. Jyn's character was a great example. She starts off being careless and angry about everything and she's also a little unstable. At the end, she's at peace mentally and she becomes a better person than she was in the beginning of the story. The novelization also made some references and connections to the prequels, and that was satisfying to me because I was hoping that there would be something that would connect Rogue One, the prequels, and the originals. One of the things that I didn't like about this novelization was that there was, (not a whole ton, but more than I would like), swearing. The movie was clean, so I am not sure why Alexander Freed included them. The ending is of course sad, but like what one of the movie critics said in his review, which goes something like this, "Death is a natural part of war. Rogue One never lets us forget that."
