A new Star Wars book series titled Flight of the Falcon is set to debut this fall, featuring a collection of vignettes and stories all starring the iconic ship, Millenium Falcon.

The book series will star Bazine Netal, who fans previously saw in the Takodana cantina scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, on the hunt for the Falcon. In order to locate the ship, the book series will show Bazine learning all that she can about Han Solo’s ship. Michael Siglain, the Creative Director for Lucasfilm Publishing, announced that this will involve learning about the Falcon’s adventures even before prequel Solo: A Star Wars Story takes place:

“These tales take us from a time just before Solo: A Star Wars Story, when Lando and L3 had the Falcon, through the original trilogy, and into the new trilogy, ending on the incredible world of Batuu”

While the book series will be set in multiple different Star Wars eras, the final destination will be Batuu. Batuu is a new planet that was conceptualized as part of the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed lands that are under construction at Disneyland and Disney World. The planet is in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, usually as a destination for travelers before they roam out to wild space.
