A Call To Adventure on the Edge of the Galaxy…Announcing STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE #1!
The newest chapter of the Star Wars saga begins this April!
New York, NY—January 22, 2019—A new chapter of Star Wars is coming! This April, Marvel invites you to join writer Ethan Sacks (Old Man Hawkeye) and artist Will Sliney for the thrilling, epic STAR WARS: GALAXY’S EDGE #1, the riveting comic adventure tie-in to the themed land!
Black Spire Outpost has long been frequented by smugglers, merchants and travelers from every corner of the galaxy looking to make their score on the infamous black market – or experience the exotic thrills only the remote world of Batuu has to offer. It’s a place where beings thrive on unique opportunities of the lawless outpost at the edge of space – but the First Order threatens their livelihood…
“For me personally, this is a chance to fulfill a lifelong dream that started back when I was 4 years old watching the opening crawl for the first time at the Astor Plaza in Times Square during the summer of 1977,” said Sacks. “This new adventure, set in the wondrous – and dangerous – Black Spire Outpost, will have profound consequences for the Star Wars universe, and fans will be excited to see this story span through the eras and bring together some all-time favorite characters, including Han Solo and Chewbacca!”
“Black Spire Outpost is a place of endless intrigue and adventure, and what’s uniquely exciting about the Star Wars universe is that we are able to bring these stories to life across multiple platforms including comic books, novels, games and the immersive experiences we are building in our theme parks,” said Scott Trowbridge, creative executive for the Star Wars portfolio from Walt Disney Imagineering. “Working together with Lucasfilm, we are able to integrate back stories, introduce new characters, as well as reveal previously untold stories about fan-favorite characters and their history with the planet Batuu and its colorful inhabitants.”
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the all-new 14-acre lands, will open at Disneyland Resort in Summer 2019 and at Walt Disney World Resort in Fall 2019.
