If you fell in love with the rebellious spirit of Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones) in Rogue One, you weren't alone. The first Star Wars anthology film took the entire world by storm after its release in December, and fans have been begging to learn more about the film's lead character.
Now, all of your cries have been heard.
It was announced today that a new young adult novel - called Rebel Rising - is being released this Spring telling a lot of Jyn's backstory, and how she became the woman that we all met in Rogue One.
Fans know that the character was cared for by the hardcore rebel Saw Gerrera from the time she was a child, and the two parted ways as in her later teenage years. The book will focus on the time that the two spent together, and how Saw taught Jyn to have such a strong and rebellious heart.
Here's the official synopsis of the book:
“When Jyn Erso was five years old, her mother was murdered and her father taken from her to serve the Empire. But despite the loss of her parents she is not completely alone—Saw Gerrera, a man willing to go to any extremes necessary in order to resist Imperial tyranny, takes her in as his own, and gives her not only a home but all the abilities and resources she needs to become a rebel herself.
Jyn dedicates herself to the cause—and the man. But fighting alongside Saw and his people brings with it danger and the question of just how far Jyn is willing to go as one of Saw’s soldiers. When she faces an unthinkable betrayal that shatters her world, Jyn will have to pull the pieces of herself back together and figure out what she truly believes in…and who she can really trust."
Rebel Rising was written by Beth Revis, and will be available on May 2, 2017.
