Life Debt, Chuck Wendig’s sequel to Aftermath, is full of new information about the galaxy, which has been handily broken down by the folks over at io9

According to the new Disney canon, instead of going about their business on Endor after Return of the Jedi, the Ewoks signed up to become therapy creatures for the New Republic as a thank you for saving their home.

The novel details how veterans suffering from PTSD are treated to groups of singing Ewoks to help calm and relax them.

Other revelations include the growth of the New Republic, some new details about Han and Leia’s wedding, and the break-up of Han and Chewie’s dream team.
