New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Comic To Explore New Planet Crait

Star Wars The Last JediThe first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi introduced us to Crait, a mineral planet that looks like it will be a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order. Now, Marvel Comics will explore the backstory of this key location.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1, is a special one-shot comic which will be released just after the film on December 27. It will be written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars).

The basic plot of the comic revolves around Luke and Leia during the Galactic Civil War as they head to Crait in search of finding a new base for the Rebel Alliance.

The editor of the comic, Jordan D. White, had the following to say about the new story:

“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story, tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the galaxy far away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has done such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will rise on December 15, 2017. The movie’s cast includes Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Benicio Del Toro as “DJ”, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, and Jimmy Vee as R2-D2.
