It was revealed at Star Wars Celebration Europe that Alexander Freed (who wrote Twilight Company) will be writing the novelization for Rogue One. The book will be out in December, however I'm not sure if that just means digitally like TFA was or if the actual physical book will be out in December.

Checked Edelweiss and release date for the hardcover is January 3rd so I'm betting it'll be just like last time.

There wasn't really much difference between the TFA movie and novel. I wonder if the RO novel will have extra stuff in it to make it worth the time and money?

Finished the Rogue One novelization. This book offers a lot more on the movie. Way better than Alan Dean Foster's TFA novelization. Freed makes sure to give you something extra on every page, whether it's insights into what the characters are thinking, extra backstory or extended scenes. It's definitely worth checking out.

@Skuldren: I agree on all points. Freed really builds up the characters and gives them the depth and motivation that the film was lacking. He doesn't really do anything differently, so he has to add inner monologue and such. That helps a ton.
