Star Wars Roundup: The Last Jedi, Han Solo, books, comics and more

The purpose of this roundup is to put all the Star Wars news from the last week in one location. If you read this Star Wars roundup each week, you should be able to converse fluently with any Star Wars fan on everything from the latest Star Wars developments to the latest toys. And maybe you’ll even share with them something that they might have missed.

Let’s get to it!
