It’s been years in the making, so I’m thrilled to finally premier the role of Vi Moradi at the dedication ceremony of Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! It’s been a rollercoaster. I vacillated; at times marveling at the opportunity to be a part of something so incredible, and other times fatigued, resolute, yet happily exhausted to be at work. I feel so grateful to carve a career doing wonderfully fantastical things such as this.
To embody a role that has lived in the public imagination is a truly surreal and rewarding experience. Even more so when that role is so dearly affiliated to the Star Wars universe. I’m the luckiest spy this side of the galaxy.
As long as there is air to breathe, The Resistance shall fight on.
Ignite the Spark & Light the Fire!
Black Spire the book!!
After devastating losses at the hands of the First Order, General Leia Organa has dispatched her agents across the galaxy in search of allies, sanctuary, and firepower—and her top spy, Vi Moradi, may have just found all three, on a secluded world at the galaxy’s edge.
A planet of lush forests, precarious mountains, and towering, petrified trees, Batuu is on the furthest possible frontier of the galactic map, the last settled world before the mysterious expanse of Wild Space. The rogues, smugglers, and adventurers who eke out a living on the largest settlement on the planet, Black Spire Outpost, are here to avoid prying eyes and unnecessary complications. Vi, a Resistance spy on the run from the First Order, is hardly a welcome guest. And when a shuttle full of stormtroopers lands in her wake, determined to root her out, she has no idea where to find help.
To survive, Vi will have to seek out the good-hearted heroes hiding in a world that redefines scum and villainy. With the help of a traitorous trooper and her acerbic droid, she begins to gather a colorful band of outcasts and misfits, and embarks on a mission to spark the fire of resistance on Batuu—before the First Order snuffs it out entirely.
Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire arrives August 27 and is available for pre-order now.
