There were a lot of scenes
“The comics will definitely expand on what was seen in both Rogue One the film and the novelization,” confirms writer Jody Houser in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “Lucasfilm and Gareth Edwards had a bunch of ideas for extra scenes and character moments that didn’t make it into the film. I’m having a lot of fun playing around with those. 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.”
Houser will be joined by artist Emilio Laiso, and you can see the covers in the gallery below.
Adaptations like these tend to be a little hit and miss, so the fact that this take on Rogue One will expand on the movie rather than simply just delivering an abbreviated version of the story we already know is very good news, and the six issue Marvel series kicks off this April.
