"A hyperdrive malfunction sends the Mellinnium Falcon massively off course trapping Han Solo galaxies away from his home system. Now stranded lightyears from everything he knows, Han must fight the life threatening hazards of the jungle filled world that has become his prison. Will he be able to fix the Falcon and return to all he knows and loves? This is one Star Wars story that you wonąt want to miss!
