Del Rey gifted us with some more book news today with a brand new synopsis for the upcoming novel by Claudia Gray, Master and Apprentice. This book will detail the earlier relationship between Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
This synopsis gives us our first idea of how this book will play out. To no surprise it sounds like the relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan will be the focal point of the story. This synopsis spends a lot of it’s time showing that both Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan are struggling to understand each other.
This book I think will add a lot to a re-watch of the Phantom Menace since we will see what really shaped these two characters relationship. By the time we meet Qui-Gon in Episode I he is very sure of himself and his relationship with his padawan. This book will allow us to see a time when the two characters relationship was a little less secure.
