The Star Wars Show along with the official site just announced that Padmé Amidala will be included in the upcoming novel Thrawn: Alliances by Timothy Zahn. The official site also included a brief excerpt of the novel and an audio clip. What makes this announcement even more special is that special editions of the novel sold at Barnes and Noble will include this amazing poster of Padmé on Batuu.

Padmé Amidala has never been one to shrink away from a fight, whether negotiating on the floor of the senate with her words or in the arena with her blaster. And when author Timothy Zahn’s follow-up to last year’s bestselling Thrawn novel debuts July 24, it includes an appearance by none other than the former Queen of Naboo herself, returning to the spotlight for a mission alongside Anakin and Thrawn in Thrawn: Alliances.

Padmé’s character is one of the most beloved characters in the saga, and her return, even as a supporting role should be celebrated. Now, if we can just get a dedicated novel of this amazing heroine. Enjoy the image everyone and don’t forget to visit the official site for that excerpt.
