Marvel has announced it will adapt Star Wars: The Last Jedi into a six-part mini-series that arrives just in time for… well, that is the question, isn’t it?

This May, writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Rebels) joins artist Michael Walsh (Star Wars Annual, Hawkeye, The Vision) for a thrilling adaptation of the hit blockbuster STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, as they follow Rey, Poe and Finn in their adventures across the galaxy, featuring never-before-seen material!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Yes, Marvel obviously wants us to relive the magic of The Last Jedi, but an adaptation like this seems really late. When Star Wars arrived in theaters in 1977, the comic book adaptation was just about to release issue #3 (the first issue arrived on stands on April 12, 1977). In a day and age where the movie can be viewed three months after a movie leaves theaters, does it make a lot of sense for the comic book adaptation to arrive five months after? Maybe, but I’m not seeing it. Use the comment section to share your thoughts.

In the meantime, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Adaptation issues #1 and #2 are scheduled to arrive on May 2, 2018.
