Appearance by wordsmith Gary Whitta headlines a Salt Lake City comic con heavy on Star Wars storytelling and continuity

Star Wars was a significant swath of Salt Lake Comic Con’s FanX 2017, with multiple panels, including one that featured Gary Whitta, co-screenwriter for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

At the panel Inside Rogue One, Whitta spoke about writing the first standalone film among the Star Wars films. Other panels on the event’s Saturday included The Interconnected Star Wars Universe and Full of Sith.
