Gary Whitta, one of the writers that created “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” is set to pen a six-issue comic book adaptation of the recently released eighth episode of the Star Wars saga, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
Whitta took to his twitter account today to share the exciting news:

What’s even better news, is the fact that Whitta will be teaming with artists Michael Walsh, Mike Spicer and Michael Del Mundo to create this new series, which, as Walsh announced on his Twitter account, will not only retell the story of the recent film, but also include new scenes and provide new perspectives.
Excited to announce I’ll be drawing the adaptation of #StarWars #TheLastJedi for #MarvelComics . We’ll be adding scenes and telling others from a new perspective. https://t.co/dObXjJQHtj pic.twitter.com/DluBbAUMyP
