A Reader's Guide to Rogue One - Part 1: Books

Rogue One is my favorite Star Wars movie for so many different reasons and we have been absolutely blessed with literary content surrounding this masterpiece of a film! There are 6 novels (not including the novelizations), at least 4 short stories, 3 comic series arcs, a one-shot comic, and a "Star Wars Adventures: Tales From Wild Space" comic in addition to adaptations that make connections to Rogue One.

There is so much out there and it is all wonderful! I love how the canon has seamlessly incorporated various aspects of this movie in such a way that it feels like the story has always been there--an exceptional feat. In this article, I’m going to cover the 6 books that have connections and in a later article will cover the short stories and comics. All of the books listed here are prequels to the film.
