A new Marvel STAR WARS comic series has been announced as a tie-in to the upcoming Disney theme park.
The new Marvel comic series Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge will provide insight into the world of Disney’s Star Wars lands, opening in theme parks later this year. The series will further introduce us to “mysterious Ithorian” Dok-Ondar, and allow fans to explore Batuu before physically visiting at the theme parks!
The series is written by Ethan Sacks, who recently wrote about the famed Mace Windu in the Star Wars: Age of Republic Special. In an interview with StarWars.com, Sacks said:
The Mace Windu story in Age of Republic was self contained and fairly easy to write once I came up with the basic story idea. While Galaxy’s Edge has intertwined stories over several eras — including a Han Solo and Chewbacca adventure, a very specific dream come true — so plotting it to fruition was kind of like playing a high stakes hand of Sabacc on an active Dejarik board.
Sacks also described the comic as giving “fans the chance to visit Black Spire Outpost months ahead of voyaging to Batuu in person.” It’ll also feature “top-secret sketches and information from Walt Disney Imagineering and Lucasfilm,” which is sure to entice us Star Wars fans!
