The Mandalorian: An Original Novel was a planned canon novel to be written by Adam Christopher and published by Del Rey, based on the 2019 television series The Mandalorian. Announced on June 30, 2020, as part of The Mandalorian's publishing program, it was originally scheduled for release on December 1 of that year, before being delayed to November 2, 2021. The novel was cancelled by Del Rey on March 9, 2021, due to the "ever-expanding world" of the series, but the publisher stated that they were already working on a new novel with Christopher, later revealed as Shadow of the Sith.
