Star Wars: Scoundrels is a Star Wars novel written by Timothy Zahn, released by Del Rey Books on January 1, 2013. It is set just after the events of the originating 1977 film Star Wars: A New Hope and features Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Lando Calrissian.

Plot[edit]

Soon after the destruction of the Death Star, Han, Chewbacca, and Lando recruit eight others for a high stakes heist.

Development[edit]

For Scoundrels, Zahn was inspired by team caper films. He said, "This is the Star Wars version of Ocean's 11. In fact, my original title was Solo's 11, but they decided that might be a little too close to the trademark."[1]
