Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate author Zoraida Córdova had the opportunity to walk around Galaxy’s Edge, but this was no ordinary stroll as the visit afforded her the chance to walk in the footsteps of her own characters, Izzy and Jules.
Zoraida’s short fiction appeared in the New York Times best-selling anthology Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View. Her latest Young Adult novel, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate, is set in the world of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the new Star Wars-themed land at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: A Crash of Fate follows two new characters. Izzy and Jules were childhood friends, dreaming of adventures they would share one day. Izzy’s family leaves the planet Batuu abruptly with no chance to say goodbye. Izzy’s grows to become a smuggler. Jules, a farmer. Thirteen years later, they reunite by chance, literally crashing into each other, and quickly find themselves in the adventure of their lives.
Zoraida recently visited Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and was thrilled to walk around parts of Batuu and Black Spire Outpost that Izzy and Jules have walked, places Zoraida had only been in her mind up to now.
