What’s New in Star Wars – February 2024

By George Bate & Josh Reilly B.

Love is in the air this February with a new Star Wars show and host of other projects to accompany your Valentine’s Day celebrations. Below includes a list and description of upcoming Star Wars projects in the month of February 2024. It is important to note that all of these release dates are subject to change.

February 6 – Knight Errant (The Essential Legends Collection)

Del Rey’s Essential Legends Collection will see the re-release of John Jackson Miller’s expanded universe novel Star Wars: Knight Errant. The publisher’s summary for the Old Republic-set book is as follows: “A thousand years before Luke Skywalker, a generation before Darth Bane, in a galaxy far, far away…

The Republic is in crisis. The Sith roam unchecked, vying with one another to dominate the galaxy. But one lone Jedi, Kerra Holt, is determined to take down the Dark Lords. Her enemies are strange and many: Lord Daiman, who imagines himself the creator of the universe; Lord Odion, who intends to be its destroyer; the curious siblings Quillan and Dromika; the enigmatic Arkadia. So many warring Sith weaving a patchwork of brutality—with only Kerra Holt to defend the innocents caught underfoot.

Sensing a sinister pattern in the chaos, Kerra embarks on a journey that will take her into fierce battles against even fiercer enemies. With one against so many, her only chance of success lies with forging alliances among those who serve her enemies—including a mysterious Sith spy and a clever mercenary general. But will they be her adversaries or her salvation?”

February 6 – Order 66: A Republic Commando Novel (The Essential Legends Collection)

The fourth novel in the Republic Commando series is also republished as part of The Essential Legends Collection. The publisher’s summary for Karen Traviss’ book is as follows: “The Clone Wars rage to their bloody climax. Treachery reigns. Treason takes courage. Commandos, Jedi, and the entire Galactic Republic must face the end of life as they know it…and the dreaded dawn of a new empire.”

February 6 – X-Wing: Wraith Squadron (The Essential Legends Collection)

A reprint (and audiobook) of Aaron Allston’s fan-favorite Legends novel releases this February. The publisher’s summary of the third Essential Legends Collection addition this month is as follows: “They are the galaxy’s most elite fighting force. And as the battle against the Empire rages, the X-wing pilots risk life and machine to protect the Rebel Alliance. Now they must go on a daring undercover mission—as the crew of an Imperial warship.

It is Wedge Antilles’ boldest creation: a covert-action unit of X-wing fighters, its pilots drawn from the dregs of other units, castoffs and rejects given one last chance. But before the new pilots can complete their training, the squadron’s base is attacked by former Imperial Admiral Trigit, and Wraith Squadron is forced to swing into action—taking over an Imperial warship and impersonating its crew. The mission: to gain vital intelligence about Trigit’s secret weapons, to sabotage the admiral’s plans, and to lure him into an Alliance trap. But the high-stakes gamble pits Wraith Squadron’s ragtag renegades against the Empire’s most brilliant master of guile and deception.

Are they up to the challenge?

If not, the penalty is instant death.”
