The Star Wars is a comic series based on the original movie screenplay draft by George Lucas. Although some elements from the classic movies are present, this is a very different story with characters who are both recognizable and unknown to Star Wars fans. Luke Skywalker is not a bright-eyed farm boy but a battle-tested general. Darth Vader is his evil counterpart, but without his famous breathing mask. Han Solo is an alien. Despite all these changes, The Star Wars attempts to introduce its loyal fans to the story that might have been, while reigniting memories the classic science fiction movie.
If you are looking for a really unique piece of film history to give to someone for the holiday, you might want to hustle over to Invaluable where they are putting Han Solo’s DL-44 Blaster from The Empire Strikes Back on the auction block.

So maybe J.J. and Kathleen Kennedy were simply taking a visit to the LucasFilms workshop, but I can’t imagine R2-D2 didn’t take the time to give the director a few pointers.

Remember the world before everything Lucas was sold to Disney, when Clone Wars was on TV? Well, you may also recall that LucasArts was in the process of developing the next video game set within the Star Wars mythos with Star Wars 1313. When the company was sold the game was scrapped and new projects were started. Concept art from the game has been revealed and now we can be doubly sad this game isn’t releasing.
