Disney Lucasfilm Press will be releasing Star Wars: Padawan, the new novel by New York Times best-selling author Kiersten White next week, July 26th. The book will follow the legendary Obi-Wan Kenobi on his journey to becoming the faithful Jedi fans have come to know and love.
Here’s the official synopsis for the book:
Struggling to accept his master’s training style – all meditation, no action – a young Obi-Wan Kenobi yearns to prove himself on a mission. But when he and Qui-Gon are finally set to leave on an assignment, Qui-Gon is nowhere to be found. Angered by his master’s abandonment, Obi-Wan sets out on the mission alone, determined to prove himself. As he experiences wild freedom with them and wonders if this isn’t the life he was meant for, Obi-Wan can’t escape the nagging sense that something is wrong with the Force there. Growing attachments, startling revelations, and a looming threat to both the planet and his new friends will bring Obi-Wan face-to-face with his worst fear: that maybe he was never supposed to be a Jedi at all. Can he connect with the living Force in time to save himself and everyone around him?
A few months ago, White teased on Twitter that the story would also include Dexter Jettster and his adventures with young Obi-Wan in the Unknown Regions.
