September 7th, 2015 by Jonathan Snelling Comments


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…

My name is Jonathan Snelling. I’ve been a movie fan for a long time now and last year completed a degree in Film and Television Studies at Aberystwyth University. It’s hard to choose a favourite film but I’ve always been a major fan of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. I’m really interested to see how Ben Affleck does in Dawn of Justice as it's set to be an incredible film. I’m usually willing to see any genre but naturally some more so than others.
