“Rebellions Are Built On Hope.”
As Rogue One: A Star Wars Story continues to blow audiences away on the silver screen, fans will soon be able to relive the adventure in a new comic book adaptation from Marvel Comics.
Set to include story content that didn’t make into the final film, the six-part mini series is set to debut in April and will be written by Jody Houser with art by Emilio Laiso.
Speaking with Marvel, Jody Houser discussed the inclusion of extra material cut from the feature film:
[Director] Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm had a number of ideas for moments that didn’t fit in the film that I’m working with. There are also some amazing moments in the novelization I want to incorporate. So it’s really a mix of material from existing versions of the story, as well as new scenes.
Covers for the first issue can be viewed below.
A novelization of the film released last month also includes some extra material that didn’t make it into the movie.
