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.
