Since then, the movies and Marvel comic books have skyrocketed in popularity. The new canon has seen a number of key, striking events. For starters, Darth Vader learned of his son’s existence. Then, we journeyed alongside Luke as he learned about the Jedi path. More importantly, we branched past these key characters as new characters rose to claim the spotlight. Now, Marvel does it again with STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – THE STORMS OF CRAIT miniseries!Discovering STAR TREK: WARS vs. TREKSTAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI – THE STORMS OF CRAIT, a Comic Book AdaptationWith THE LAST JEDI coming to theaters in December, it is no surprise that Marvel wishes to capitalize on the storytelling potential of the new trilogy. Thankfully, THE STORMS OF CRAIT will not simply be a retelling of the upcoming story. Writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker with artist Mike Mayhew promise to bridge the gap between the original trilogy and the new films. Disney showcased Crait in recent STAR WARS news as a primary battleground for the Rey and the Resistance. However, as THE STORMS OF CRAIT reveals, Crait has played an important military role before. Years before the film, Luke and Leia personally scouted the planet as a possible location for a new Rebel base, and it became the site for a great battle with the Galactic Empire.STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Review: A New AdaptationWhile we currently know little about the plot, this news should excite STAR WARS fans.
