Fans of the Star Wars novels are a bit disappointed upon learning that The Last Jedi novel won’t be available in hard copy or e-book until March 6th, 2018. So why the three-month postponement to release the book? Spoilers? Story discrepancies between the film and the novel? Whatever the reason is, Disney is playing it very close to the chest and hasn’t given a reason for the delay. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in print and in theatres on the same day on December 15, 2015. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story followed on December 16, 2016, and continued with the same pattern with the film and the novel both being released on the same day.
One can safely come to the conclusion that the release date of The Last Jedi novel may very well coincide with the Blu-ray/ DVD release in the spring.
