Yep. And that makes it even wilder that the last four Star Wars novelizations didn't come out until around the time of the home video releases. Part of that has to do with the authors not having enough time to write a book once they're given access to the script & filmmakers, part of it has to do with deliberately not syncing it to the theatrical release because of fear of the entire movie leaking before its released, and part of that is the insanity of Star Wars fans (like myself) to still even buy novelizations.If you like a new theatrical movie, you just wait about six weeks and then you watch it again at home. If you like a new TV episode, you can play it again the moment it ends.
The gap that the novelization used to fill basically doesn’t exist anymore.
