The official Star Wars website has updated with an announcement that a new comic one-shot will be released by Marvel Comics. The comic titled, ” Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait,” is written by Ben Acker & Ben Blacker with illustrations by Mike Mayhew. The comic will feature events on the planet Crait, which will be featured in Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, during the events of the Galactic Civil War. Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa journey to the salt covered planet as they search for a new rebel base.
Comic editor, Jordan D. White had this to say about the upcoming comic one-shot.
“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White, “tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the galaxy far away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has done such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 will be released on December 27.
