It seems the Star Wars universe it yet again going to get another comic title.
Lucasfilm has announced the title of their new series as simply… C3PO. Set after the events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, it will focus on the details surrounding 3PO’s strange red arm, seen on some Star Wars: The Force Awakens concept and merchandise art – we reported on it in June (here).
We have no idea what it will involve or who all will be in it but it seems there’s no end to the Star Wars films Disney wants to throw at us.
The series will be written by the award-winning Starman team of James Robinson and Tony Harris: “That’s a really exciting part of doing this story,” Robinson said, “I saw a photo of C-3PO with his red arm the other day and I thought ‘Wow, I’m the writer who gets to explain that.'”
C3PO arrives in December…
