Two new “Star Wars” books will arrive this summer, giving fans new details and information to read over while we await the next film or television series.

The first book, titled “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge: Traveler’s Guide to Batuu,” will give fans a chance to see everything about the fictional planet Batuu, where the Galaxy’s Edge park at Walt Disney World and Disneyland is supposed to be set.

The book will be an official guide to the fictional world with “recommendations on where to eat, shop, and sightsee during your trip to Black Spire Outpost,” according to a news release.

“Traveler’s Guide” will be written from an in-world perspective, fitting the theme of Batuu as an immersive experience. There will be full-color illustrations and maps, original content from Lucasfilm and Disney, and backstories to all characters who appear in the area.

The book will include “itineraries and descriptions of weekend trips beyond the fictional planet, including “nearby planets and environs,” according to a news release.

The second book, titled “Star Wars: The Book of Lists,” will offer “a fascinating look at the galaxy far, far away through trivia culled from both on-screen and off, spanning all nine movies,” according to a new release.

The book will include 100 lists that will offer facts about all things “Star Wars.” For example, there will be lists about which characters have visited the most planets, who shared the best kiss and who had the most surprising cameos in the series.

Both books arrive on June 23.

These books are announced as “Star Wars” fans waits to hear about potential new content. “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” is about to wrap up its seventh and final season, while the next season of “The Mandalorian” on Disney Plus is still a few months away.

In February, Lucasfilm announced a new “Star Wars” campaign called “The High Republic,” which will be a set of comic books, adult and young adult novels, and children’s books set 200 years before the prequel trilogy of “Star Wars.”

The series will be primarily book-based without any connections to television or film projects.

Those stories will begin releasing in August.
