Marvel to Restore Deleted Scenes to Star Wars: Rise Of The Skywalker Adaptation in June

Whenever I tell people that my third favourite Star Wars movie is Rise Of The Skywalker, there's likely to be a conversation. Especially when I add that Rogue One is my first. That Last Jedi is my second And that Empire is only around four or five. Six on a bad day. So I anticipate in having similar conversations come June when Marvel publishes a comics adaptation of Rise Of The Skywalker from Jody Houser and Will Sliney.

Announced earlier today at ComicsPRO in Portland, Oregon, Marvel Comics will be putting the final chapter of the Skywalker saga to the page in a comics adaptation of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. And, as ever, the five-issue limited series will also have brand-new story material.
