Novel Review: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Expanded Edition

We received an early copy of the novelization for STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER two weeks before it hits store shelves and we are happy to share all the essential information revealed about EPISODE IX. How did Palpatine orchestrate his return? Who was his son and where did he come from? How did Leia save Ben Solo through The Force? How did the Sith Eternal build their army in secret? What message did the Force Spirit of Luke Skywalker communicate to his sister Leia?

All of the answers and more are revealed in this “Expanded Edition” novel adaptation. Special guest Paul Bateman joins Jimmy Mac for a SPOILER HEAVY close look at all the extra scenes and new details revealed in the new book by Rae Carson, along with tons of analysis and reaction.
