Marvel has announced it is adapting Rogue One: A Star Wars Story into a comic book series.

Arriving in April, Rogue One will be written by Jody Houser of Max Ride fame, with Emilio Laiso on art. Laiso has worked in the Star Wars universe previously in Marvel’s Star Wars Annual.

All appears lost in the fight against the tyrannical Galactic Empire. The Rebellion has discovered the existence of the Empire’s ultimate super-weapon. The Death Star. With the power to wipe planets from existence, the Death Star’s existence spells doom for those seeking freedom. All hope now lies in the hands of new heroes Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor. Their last ditch gambit to steal the Death Star plans are all that stands in the Empire’s way!

Instead of a direct adaptation, Marvel promises the six-issue mini-series will also include story elements and material we didn’t get to see in the movie.
