All week, I’ve been talking about Christie Golden’s new novel Star Wars Battlefront II: Inferno Squad, and today I’ll be connecting the dots between Inferno Squad and a limited-run comic book series, two novels, and a short story from Star Wars Insider magazine.
And just to whet your appetite, I’ll say this: We’re going to veer into the slippery side of canon, because what one character says in Novel #1 utterly contradicts something in a pretty major way in Inferno Squad, and also conflicts with what we see in Novel #2. Sorry to be cryptic – listen to the podcast for the full explanation!
Basically, what I’m getting at is that Lucasfilm Story Group’s Pablo Hidalgo has said (and I’m paraphrasing) the stories characters tell to each other might not be “canon,” per se, because they could be and are just that – “stories” – and thus not perfectly reliable. And I’m pretty certain we run into a hard-and-fast example of that here in Inferno Squad.

Yesterday’s answer: Mon Mothma, General Draven, Cassian Andor, Bail Organa
Today’s question: Why does the Alliance need Jyn to introduce Cassian to Saw Gerrera, instead of Cassian just going by himself?
