For the second year in a row, we’re counting down the days to December less because we’re anticipating family togetherness during the holidays (snore) and more because there’ll be a new Star Wars movie in theaters (ok, fine, loved ones, we’ll get tickets for you). Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is a little over a month away, and we. Can’t. Wait. We haven’t been this excited to preorder tickets since, well, you can probably do the math.

One of the ways we’ll be biding our time until then: jumping at lightspeed into the film’s backstory with Star Wars: Catalyst, an official Rogue One prequel novel written by James Luceno, the recognized authority on the historical minutiae of the galaxy far, far away.
The novel promises to reveal the story behind the elaborate Rebel mission to steal the plans for the Galactic Empire’s new super-weapon, but the rag-tag organization needn’t have bothered: you can find them right there on the two-sided poster included in the Barnes & Noble exclusive edition of Catalyst. Maybe they didn’t want to wait until the book is released on November 15? Well, no bother: we’ll show you both sides of the poster right now!
