StarWars.com has posted an excerpt from the final book in the Star Wars: Aftermath series, which will be called Empire’s End, and it may reveal part of why Han and Leia eventually separated from each other before their brief reunion in The Force Awakens.
To summarize the excerpt, which you can read in full by hitting the link above, Han basically is bored with life now that he has no skin in any sort of game. Chewie is off looking for his family, Luke is scouring the galaxy for Jedi artifacts and trainees, and Leia is pregnant with Ben. So where does that leave Han? Well, to fetch a certain type of fruit for his expecting lady love.
We all know the type of guy Han is, so there’s definitely something to the notion that his “boring” life may have pushed him away from Leia, as well as the troubles they had with a young Ben Solo. If anything, this final entry in Aftermath may shed the most light on what happened to the gang prior to The Force Awakens, as it will also feature the Battle of Jakku in full.
Star Wars: Aftermath – Empire’s End arrives February 21. You can pre-order it and buy the other books from Amazon today.
