Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Rumor has it that the upcoming novelization of Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins: "Luke Skywalker stood in the cooling sands of Tatooine, his wife by his side." That's all that's been unofficially revealed so far via Reddit, though a commenter claims it's only a dream sequence. Other leaks have begun to spill as well; the novel by Jason Fry will be released on March 6, just ahead of the digital release on March 13. [Reddit via Dork Side of the Force and Movieweb]
