  1. Man, they must’ve had the best honeymoon ever. I wo Fer how Kylo Ren would react to that. Maybe actual couples will experience the same thing knee the hotel opens.

  2. We’ll see if it can live up to and be a worthy alternative to the Expanded Universe canon’s “The Courtship of Princess Leia” by Dave Wolverton. That was one of my favorite EU novels and I still have it on my shelf, whereas most Star Wars books I did not keep after reading.

  3. You … have … got … to … be … kidding … me.

    Disney stooping to cringey lows to promote the overpriced Galactic Star Cruiser experience, in Star Wars cannon. As an OG Star Wars super-fan, this is unbelievably stupid.
