Padmé Returns On Gorgeous Art For Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances


All hail the Queen of Naboo.

Padmé Amidala will be returning to the fray for Star Wars novel Thrawn: Alliances later this month, and today heralds an early peek at Padmé leading the fight on Batuu. And let’s just say she means business.

So while Natalie Portman’s prequel character will always be known as the mother of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, Thrawn: Alliances will roll back the years to focus on her military prowess, and below you’ll find a glimpse of the Barnes & Noble exclusive edition for Star Wars: Thrawn – Alliances.

There’s also an excerpt (via the link below) ripped straight from the pages of Timothy Zahn’s novel sequel, which sees Padmé journey to the planet’s surface to “investigate the disappearance of an old friend…”

Pegged for a release on July 24th, Thrawn – Alliances ought to be of interest to anyone who picked up the original bestseller, which plunged into the storied relationship between Vader and Thrawn. This latest Star Wars novel journeys back into the past further still, all the way to Thrawn’s first encounter with the man who would one day become Darth Vader…

Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader ally against a threat to the Empire in this new novel from bestselling author Timothy Zahn. The sequel to New York Times bestseller Thrawn, Thrawn: Alliances will continue to follow the rise of Grand Admiral Thrawn to the heights of Imperial power—and accompany him into the past, witnessing his first encounter with the man who will one day become Darth Vader.
