When the Star Wars fans sat down last October to see the dawning of the age of the Rebellion, we knew that we would be immersed in that galaxy far, far away in all of its splendor. We were not disappointed. All of the classical elements were there – a lived-in universe, Force-sensitive beings, and so on. And in that distressed universe, a new literary world began, immersing us in the Dark Times. We met a group of rebels – the outcasts, the disaffected and the oppressed.
Lucasfilm has had a long tradition of spreading glad tidings and holiday cheer via their annual Christmas cards, and this year is no different. As a special treat, they have released a festive animated video featuring R2-D2 and Chopper!
The official Star Wars website has a truncated sneak peak of some pages from Marvel Entertainment’s upcoming “Star Wars: Princess Leia” mini-series, including art from illustrator Terry Dodson.
To see what Dodson’s artistic stylings are like, and take a walk down memory lane to a certain award ceremony on a moon near Yavin, check out StarWars.com. The issue, penned by Mark Waid, is out in March at comic shops and will feature at least 10 variant covers, for now.
It’s only December yet Marvel’s slate of “Star Wars” comics will be at three come March when the Mark Waid-written and Terry Dodson-illustrated Princess Leia mini-series makes it debut with two issues as the Rebel alliance leader finds out what it means to be a princess without a home world.
Also making a debut is a new female character in the pages of “Darth Vader” No. 3, Aphra, whose presence is starting to generate buzz, given the lack of information about the character yet her importance, given the cover of the issue.
