“In Queen’s Peril, uh, they, they go to a concert,” Johnston admitted, “and, umm, the band is actually based on My Chemical Romance.”

This reveal came after Johnston told the hosts she had done everything in her power to write about the things people make fun of when they think of young females. Her goal was to make these things vital to the plot, and it sounds like we can rightfully say mission accomplished.

“I always joked, if I could have sent them to a Backstreet Boys concert, I would have,” Johnston said to chuckles from both hosts.

Queen’s Peril follows fourteen-year-old Padme Naberrie winning the election as Queen of Naboo, adopting the name Amidala, and selecting the team of handmaidens, assistants, and decoys. This book follows the highly acclaimed Queen’s Shadow that followed Padme stepping down from her position as “Queen Amidala” of Naboo and instead becoming Naboo’s representative at the Galactic Senate.

The first episode of The Clone Wars Season 7 came out February 21st, where fans will finally be able to fill the gap between season 6 and E.K. Johnston’s Ahsoka novel! For more coverage on The Clone Wars check out the After Show every Friday on AfterBuzz TV Animation
