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.
You think you know Star Wars, but do you know The Star Wars? George Lucas’ original take on the SW universe is about to be unleashed on us all, and Dark Horse Comics released a teaser trailer to get us excited.
It’s no April Fools’ prank! Dark Horse is honored to announce a dream project: working with J.W. Rinzler, executive editor at LucasBooks, and artist Mike Mayhew (Avengers) to adapt the rough-draft original screenplay which spawned the biggest franchise in film history!
