- "Now let's go save the galaxy."
- ―The novel's last words
Resistance Reborn is a canon novel written by Rebecca Roanhorse. It is part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker publishing program, and it was first published on November 5, 2019 by Del Rey, with an audiobook version releasing on the same day. Resistance Reborn is set immediately after the events of the 2017 film Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, and it serves as a prequel to Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.
The Resistance is in ruins. In the wake of their harrowing escape from Crait, what was once an army has been reduced to a handful of wounded heroes. Finn, Poe, Rey, Rose, Chewbacca, Leia Organa—their names are famous among the oppressed worlds they fight to liberate. But names can only get you so far, and Leia's last desperate call for aid has gone unanswered.
From the jungles of Ryloth to the shipyards of Corellia, the shadow of the First Order looms large, and those with the bravery to face the darkness are scattered and isolated. If hope is to survive, the Resistance must journey throughout the galaxy, seeking out more leaders—including those who, in days gone by, helped a nascent rebellion topple an empire. Battles will be fought, alliances will be forged, and the Resistance will be reborn.
Resistance Reborn incorporates characters and stories from several other mediums, including Star Wars: The Aftermath Trilogy, the comic book series Star Wars: Poe Dameron, and the video game Star Wars Battlefront II.

Notes and references
- The Del Rey Star Wars timeline places Resistance Reborn between Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi and Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire. Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi takes place directly after Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY, and Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire also takes place in 34 ABY per the reasoning here, meaning that Resistance Reborn takes place in 34 ABY.
