There is also "A Crash Of Fate" by Zoraida Cordova, which is described as a Young Adult novel in which two reunited childhood friends have to escape smugglers on the planet.

"Star Wars: Myths and Fables" by George Mann is the third announced title, and it'll middle reader novel that includes two stores set on Batuu. Deadline says it'll also contain other stories about familiar Star Wars locales and characters put into a children's book format.

"Black Spire" is set to release on September 3rd 2019, just in time for the Walt Disney World area to open.
