Cool Stuff is your geeky holiday shopping guide published all year round.
It is true that each edition of Cool Stuff likely includes at least one Star Wars item. Yes, I love the franchise and the selection in these columns are very subjective based on my tastes. But it is also true that Disney liceses the Star Wars brand for a lot of products, so there is just a lot of cool collectibles, toys, books, t-shirts, prints…etc to choose from. But even with featuring Star Wars stuff in each edition, we tend to have a backlog of Star Wars cool stuff to feature. So today I have decided to do an all Star Wars edition of Cool Stuff.

Before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit screens, Del Rey released a prequel novel Rogue One: Catalyst which told the story of Galen Erso and Orson Krennic. That story takes place beginning during the Clone Wars up until Galen Erso and family escaped into hiding thanks to Saw Gerrera. As you know, Rogue One starts off four years later with Krennic discovering the family’s location on the planet Lah’mu. What we don’t see is the thirteen years in between that prologue scene and when we meet adult Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) in jail. But a new book will give us some insight into that Jyn Erso’s backstory.
