Fans of Poe Dameron will be thrilled to learn that a Young Adult novel focusing on his earlier days and relationship with Zorii Bliss is heading our way 4th August 2020 from the pen of Alex Segura. The book will focus on a teenage Poe as he smuggles spice off Kijimi

It’s been a few years since Poe’s mother passed away, and Poe and his father, who was a pilot for the Rebellion, have had more and more trouble connecting. Not sure what he wants to do with his life, teenage Poe runs away from home to find adventure, and to figure out what kind of man he is meant to be.

Polygon spoke to Segura about his excitement about the project.

What excites you about writing for Poe in this setting?

I love complex, multi-faceted characters that aren’t easily categorized. Poe is, of course, a hero — but that doesn’t mean he woke up one day fully formed in terms of his beliefs and experiences. Poe’s loyal, driven, extremely sharp, and stubborn — but the chance to tell the story of how he came to be that Poe, and the shady, dangerous corners of the galaxy he had to walk through to get there, was extremely appealing to me as a storyteller. Free Fall is very much a galactic crime novel, in that it explores the seedier side of the Star Wars universe through the eyes of one of its most relatable characters. It’s been a blast to work on this.
