STARWARS.COM GETS ALL THE INTEL ON MARVEL’S UPCOMING ADAPTATION, INCLUDING A FIRST LOOK AT THE COVER FOR ISSUE #2.
The time-honored tradition of Star Wars being adapted into comic book form is continuing this April with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The six-issue limited series will be written by Jody Houser and feature art from Emilio Laiso, and it promises a little something extra: Houser will be including additional scenes from the novelization and elements not in the final film, which means more of our new favorite heroes and villains. StarWars.com emailed with Houser about writing the eagerly awaited adaptation, the promise of additional scenes, and which pieces of Star Wars storytelling made her a huge fan. (Plus, thanks to our rebel spies, we have a first look at the cover of issue #2.)
StarWars.com: When did you find out you would be writing the adaptation of Rogue One, and how did that impact your first viewing of the film?
Jody Houser: I was offered the job before Halloween, so the movie was pretty much always in the workbox for me. I read the script more than a week before the film hit theaters, so when I saw it opening night with a group of friends (85 friends, actually!) I was in writer mode the whole time.
