After we see the planet Crait for the first time in “The Last Jedi,” we’ll be able to learn more about the planet a few weeks later in a new one shot-comic from Marvel titled, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait.”
The comic will be released on December 27th, and will tell us how the rebels came to first use it as a base, when it is discovered by Luke and Leia. It will be written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, with art by Mike Mayhew.
Here is the description and cover of the new comic from StarWars.com:
StarWars.com is excited to announce Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1, a special one-shot arriving December 27, written by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker (Star Wars: Join The Resistance) with art by Mike Mayhew (Star Wars, The Star Wars). The comic rewinds to the Galactic Civil War, following Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa as they take up arms on the salt-covered world and search for a new rebel base.
We knew already that Crait was going to be an old rebel based being used again by the resistance in “The Last Jed,” but now it’s even cooler to know that Luke and Leia will play a bigger role in it’s history, and I cant wait to read all about that story in this comic.
