A new Star Wars novel coming this summer will canonize the wedding of Han Solo and Leia Organa.
Now that the sequel trilogy has concluded, more Star Wars stories are starting to explore the time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Shadow of the Sith will reveal the adventure with Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian, teased in The Rise of Skywalker.
StarWars.com announced on Valentine’s Day that fans will get to find out what happened in the early days of Han and Leia’s marriage with The Princess and the Scoundrel.

The upcoming novel from author Beth Revis will arrive on August 16.
