Marvel Entertainment has announced that a three-issue prequel comic to this December’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is in the works and will launch in October.
First reported by Bleeding Cool and then confirmed by Marvel, no details of the storyline or creators were revealed, but it was confirmed that an additional one-off issue will follow at a later date.
This is not unlike “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” which was to be preceded by the four-issue series “Shattered Empire” and a C-3PO one-shot, the latter pushed back to a launch next month.
Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Ben Mendelsohn, Alan Tudyk, Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen and Wen Jiang star in the film which opens in December. The first trailer is rumored, but not confirmed, to be attached to “Captain America: Civil War”.
