A new six-part Marvel comic expanding on the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is to be released.
In an exclusive with EW, Marvel confirmed the news saying “extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film” will appear in the new series.
“The comics will definitely expand on what was seen in both Rogue One the film and the novelization,” they said. “Lucasfilm and Gareth Edwards had a bunch of ideas for extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film. Adaptations across different forms of media have always been a great opportunity to explore other facets of the story, and we’re excited to have new material in the Rogue One comic.”
The series will be written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Emilio Laiso with a release date of this coming April.
