UPDATE! New Information on an Upcoming Comic About the Planet Crait from The Last Jedi!

A comic book solicitation has recently leaked on Reddit that reveals information on a brand new comic coming in December that will tie in to The Last Jedi. Bleeding Cool also reported on the upcoming comic, titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Storms of Crait #1, stating that it will reveal secrets about the planet. And now with an official announcement.

(from the leaked solicitation on Reddit):

 

STAR WARS LAST JEDI STORMS OF CRAIT #1

This December, the soon-to-be thrilling Star Wars: The Last Jedi rocks movie screens across the world…and the reverberations are felt all around a galaxy far, far away! First up, learn the secret of the mineral planet Crait! Long before it became a battleground between the Resistance and the First Order, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa led the Rebellion there in search of a new home! From writers Ben Acker & Ben Blacker (Star Wars Join the Resistance) and artist Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Shattered Empire) comes the backstory to this winter’s biggest adventure!
Rated T

 

Readers of Claudia Gray’s Leia, Princess of Alderaan have already been introduced to the planet as it was the location of a rebel outpost prior to the Galactic Civil War. Hopefully this book will explain how this planet was used during and after the war and lay the ground work for its current significance in the sequel trilogy. After Jason Aaron’s Star Wars #33 left me desperately wanting some more Luke and Leia stories, I’m excited to see that they look to be the main characters of this book as they establish a new home for the rebellion on the salt-covered planet.

 

One bit of contradicting info between these two sources is that Bleeding Cool lists Mike Mayhew as the artist. Perhaps both Mayhew and Checchetto will contribute to the book, or possibly one will do the cover while the other the book’s interior. Both of these artists are fantastic, and I will be happy with either one. It is unclear at this time whether this will be a one-shot issue or a mini-series. Stay tuned as we will update you on this upcoming title when we have more information!

 

 

 

 

UPDATE!

 

September 15, 2017

 

StarWars.com has just officially announced the Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Storms of Crait #1 comic. The art will indeed be by Mike Mayhew and the issue will be released on December 27, following the release of the film. Check out the cover by Marco Checchetto below:

 

 

“We’re excited for the opportunity to tell this story,” said editor Jordan D. White, “tying the new sequel series in more tightly with the original trilogy era, and helping make the galaxy far away a little more fleshed out. The Bens are a great fit for Star Wars, as they showed in Join the Resistance, and Mike has done such great work on both covers and the Obi-Wan issues of the flagship Star Wars title, that we couldn’t be happier to have him back doing art for us.”

      Star Wars is riddled with ineffective military technology. The whole idea of the AT-AT is somewhat ludicrous. The Rebel cannons on Hoth only rotated on a horizontal axis. TIE Fighters have worse pilot visibility than an ALVIN submarine. But it’s Star Wars. The technology wasn’t created to be necessarily practical or feasible. It was designed for visual impact.

          It does. From the very beginning of the rumors about a new AT-AT, it’s been noted that they were modified to keep that trick from working again. I noticed what looked like rows of wire cutters on the front legs, and the new foot joint may be a response to the Hoth embarrassment too.

      Okay, come on. On one hand, yes; I do find it a bit irritating that Crait is a desert planet as Hoth very much was an Arctic desert(they can be either hot or cold). And the fact we are getting new walkers you could argue is worrying.

      But have a little faith. Unless, this movie actively has a Walker sequence that is beat for beat ESB, then I think people should give this world the benefit of the doubt. Heck, if RJ is smart, he will have a bit where the Resistance actually tries to do the same tactic only for it to fail. Meta-commentary that yeah, kind of identical sequence, but NOT the same outcome.

            I liked a lot the story, I loved the Rey(Kylo duel, but I believe It could be the same story without rehashing almost everything else that surround it. JJ said it himself, the rehas was intended, it is no secret, and it is not a point of view it is a fact, so its TFA fault, sorry, for good or bad it is what it is.

            That’s exactly what is going to happen. There are going to be some folks so eager to jump online and cry foul about all the similarities between TLJ and ESB that they’re going to be watching the movie looking for little else.

            It is not a pre-judgement, it is more like a concern, I think and I hope I will love this movie, as I do with all first 6, because I like what I had seen of TLJ by now, but having TFA as precursor may rise some concerns.

          Lol. I hear what you’re saying, but that’s a child’s argument. They did it so that’s why I’m going to act this way, it’s their fault not mine for willingly choosing to believe something. As far as I can tell if you put imperial walkers on a planet before ESB it will be considered new and plausible (aka Rogue One). You put walkers on a planet after ESB even though you don’t know when in the movie it happens, why they’re there, the context of the situation, etc etc and it’s considered a rehash because there are so many clairvoyant fans that immediately know its going to play out as Hoth because this will be the opening of the movie where they are trying to escape and need to protect their shield generators as Kylo Ren has been fervently searching for years looking for the Resistance and the young Skywalker even though this film is supposed to take place immediately after TFA.

          But no, blame TFA. Because a movie did one thing I automatically assume everything is going to be the same as that film even though its a different director because I don’t have any free will and grasp at the first pattern I see and hold it to be truth because I don’t critically think..

            As I commented before, I have great expectation about this movie, I think it will be one of the best sincerely, but the similarities in this scene (desertic planet, walkers, trench, turrets, make it so similar, and there is a concern about this movie making the same as TFA, JJ said that the rehash of stuff was intended, and for good or bad it worked, but they don’t need to do that anymore I think.

        If there’s a planet with breathable oxygen and gravity, people are going to yell rehash. The constant bemoaning by a vocal minority here about how they perceived TFA to be a rehash of ANH demonstrates one thing: they’re largely unable to look past some familiar elements and see an interesting story with interesting (and different) characters. Ah well. You can’t explain color to the colorblind.

          It is well known that SW have a lot of inspiration sources, but inspiration is different from copying itself and expect others take it as new and original.

          And not just SW, all the stories have inspiration in other stories, partialy at least.

          There is a quote “Don’t copy, steal” or “good artists copy, great artists steal” this say a lot, And I think TFA copies, all other SW movies steal, know what I mean? regarding inspiration and creativity.

          I think and hope, TLJ will be more like a stealer 🙂

        You ever had a car or some object that you really loved? Something that you really enjoyed to where you took care of it, saw it as your pride and joy and as a means to relax?

        That was what Legends was to me and a lot of people. You can argue it wasn’t canon, but to question why that was a gripe is insulting. Because, there was a time when SWs was dead. After ROTJ, nothing had emerged. And Legends very much filled that gap.

        And whether you like it or not, that bit of SWs helped garner a whole group of fans, myself included who was a casual fan. And while I understand why LF got rid of it, to simply throw aside the reasonable fans(I use this to differentiate those who are obsessed about it) is also wrong.

        So overall, Legends mattered to people. Canon or not, it was real to us fans and very much kept to the spirit of what GL gave us.

          I understand the nostalgic value, but, for starters, post-Disney Lucasfilm didn’t just jettison the EU. They rebranded it as ‘Legends’ and are making it a point to keep it available, republish it and pick and choose the best parts to adapt. It’s all still there.

          That being said, fans of the old EU who bash the new canon tend to forget the great change in context. The only real advantage the old EU had was that there was no sequel trilogy to skirt around. It could take risks because they were not being taken elsewhere. Now this possibility has shifted to the new films. Besides, ‘Clone Wars’ had already done this to the old EU when it took precedence in cases of clashes.

        I don’t go for what they say it’s official or not, one of the cool things with all the content we have, is one can make their own mind, so while Rogue One was fun, to me, Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors stole the Death Star plans. What is that? Disney and Pablo say different? Guess what, I dont care, it’s not like a law or something.

          Hey I am totally cool with head canon. I watched Belated Media’s “What if Episode 1, 2, 3 were good?” on youtube and that is how the prequels happened for me. Nobody can tell you what to believe, but to say that I won’t get invested in new canon because they took away the stuff I cared about, when it wasn’t “official” to begin with is sort of silly. Those stories aren’t going anywhere, you can still sit down and enjoy Heir to the Empire. I personally still enjoy playing Shadows of the Empire on my N64, and watching Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars cartoon. But at the end of the day Lucas never considered them apart of his universe. He is the creator and all, and he handed it off to Filoni and KK and they are as capable as any to lead fans into the future. I think you’d be a lot happier and your Star Wars experienced will be enriched if you gave the new stuff a chance.

    I’m looking forward to this comic. I have to catch up with Aaron’s SWs comic(I know he is leaving soon, or has he left? Someone clarify, if possible), but given how I loved Checchetto’s artwork in Shattered Empire; this is going to be a real trait.

    And the planet Crait seems like a cool concept. And for those who say Crait is a ripoff of Hoth, please just stop. On one hand, yes; I am a bit peeved that we are getting Walkers. But having walkers isn’t the same as it is going to be a scene for scene shot of the Walker assault? If anything, I truly believe RJ is going to do something really cool with that sequence.

    Something I’d love to see as a means to silence most of the naysayers is have the Resistance try to use tow cables, only for the FO to shut that strategy down. Basically, being a meta commentary of “we are NOT the Empire”.

    Because, much as I dislike TFA, I know for a fact KK, LF and RJ aren’t going to copy ESB. You know how bad that would look for them? Because, ESB is one of the best sequels of all time. Lightning in a bottle. But if TLJ takes homage from ESB in terms of tone and characterization and sacrifices its narrative(which ESB does), then we are in for a treat.

    So yeah, naive, but I am super looking forward to TLJ.

        Ah, I see. How is the current main comic? I usually like reading the volumes as opposed to single issues. A lot of it is me being spoiled by manga and manga volumes. Plus, I like having the entire story in a single volume. But I am down with that choice. I very much enjoyed Vader Down. 🙂

          I’m with you on reading volumes as opposed to single issues.

          The main comic is fine so far. It has its fair share of hits and misses, but it’s still good overall. ‘Vader Down’ is one of the high points, the second crossover not so much.

          Personally, if you had to choose, I’d recommend going for the ‘Lando’ and ‘Maul’ miniseries first. The ‘Darth Vader’ should also be out by now and definitely worth a buy.

        And I believe RJ will do something insanely cool with that. But really, I feel like RJ needs to make a statement within the movie that this won’t be like TFA where it rehashed ESB. And having a sequence where the First Order basically stop the Resistance’s old strategy very much would go a long way in showing that aspect.

        Among other elements. Yeah, there is still the training between Rey and Luke. But even that can be mixed up. Like for example, not having most of the movie focus on it and have the two of them actually going out of the planet.

    I’m actually really curious about those two planets in the sequel trilogy. One was the birthplace of the Emperor and his reviled collaborator Jar Jar Binks. The other was the seat of imperial power, which itself was housed in a Jedi temple built over a Sith shrine.

    More information about what became of these places and how the rest of the galaxy interacts with them would be fascinating for me.

    I don’t care how similar it is to ESB or any previous Star Wars movie as long as it is good. The constant bemoaning of “oh, it’s going to be an ESB rehash!” is very tiresome and at this point banal.

    I really don’t understand why or how some people cannot get over the whole TFA was too similar to ANH/the Original Trilogy. Get over it already. Pretty sure the people who didn’t like TFA for the characters won’t like this new one either, and I’m pretty sure if they didn’t like it for the similarities to a previous Star Wars movie, none of them will like this one too because there are always going to be similarities. The similarities is what makes Star Wars Star Wars.

They can post all they want about what they hate, or dislike about the new Star Wars movies, but they can’t sit there and tell me that I need to be more accepting of other’s opinions when they could just as easily be more accepting of what other people like.

            If all I need to do is just ignore the negativity then all they need to do is just ignore the positivity. Am I truly the better person if I just let people post negative posts all the time without fear of repercussion? By being more tolerant of their opinions does that also benefit me? If all I ever hear is the opposite opinion of mine, and what I think they are saying is wrong, I fail to see how that benefits me by being drowned in negativity. In reality, none of our opinions on movies truly matter, but if it'[s something we care about and still enjoy I think I’m allowed just as much leeway to voice my pro opinion as they are the con opinion.

            One could argue that the tolerance paradox applies here but at the same time, Nash’s Game Theory suggests that the best solution is to just accept each other for both sides to have a win win situation.

            Negativity drains the community.

            I’m personally all for negative remarks being removed unless put in a constructive manner. Though continued negativity, such as the hate towards the PT which was released well over 10 years ago, should simply be banned. We all know the faults by now, why continue to gripe.

            In regard to recent/upcoming movies, sure voice concerns and feelings, but in a constructive manner. I personally find those that show pictures/plot-points of TLJ against that of ESB interesting. They at least show some thought and effort.

            We usually do try to remove pointless negative posts, and then when people continuously do it, we talk about whether or not they should be banned. Then if they cross that line after being warned once or twice that’s when the gavel is dropped.

    The term “clutching at straws …” comes to mind with this ‘link’ to the new movie. Disney are really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this new canon, hoping the dumb sheeple fan-boys/girls wouldn’t notice …

      Nobody can use the term “sheeple” and not sound like a blithering numbskull.

      I’m going to jump the gun a bit and assume that this will be the dumbest post I’ll day.

      Ah, LadyFerry with her constructive criticism again. I love how people like her usually never do anything creative themselves, they just critizise others. They are often unable to form nuanced opinions with pros and cons. In their world a movie/game/comic/book either sucks or is the best thing ever. No inbetween. Also they will happily predict the downfall of SW with every major release because they just assume that everyone is as closeminded and resentful as they are. And once they find out that they are in the minority they just call everyone else sheeple.

    I would love to see OT characters in those environments to tie the two trilogies together.
    I get the feeling we will staying miles away from Gungans and Ewoks as they don’t fit nouveau Star Wars.

    I feel like we are going to see a mix of planets, PT, OT and new ones going forward. For example, definitely count Mustafar coming back in some kind, given Vader’s palace was built there. As for other worlds, I can very much see Scariff or even Jedha coming back into the story in some fashion.

    As for Coruscant; I’d love to see that planet or heck, even Kamino.

      A naval ship battle on Kamino would be awesome. I know that’s not very “Star Wars”, but that would be really cool. I always liked the Wookiee beach assault in ROTJ. It was just too short-lived.

    PT? OT?

    I am just a Star Wars fan.

      Right, that might have come off as me favoring one trilogy over the other. No, I love I-VI as a whole. It’s all Star Wars to me. What I actually meant was that this ST seems to be playing on the nostalgic feelings we have for the OT, but it would be really nice to see things that would cater to those who like the PT as well. The same way we all love seeing the ships and certain environments from the OT brought to life again with modern technology, it would be nice those from the PT share the same experience.

        Well, it does make sense since the PT is like 60 years in the past.

          Yup that time gap could hinder the possibility of certain vehicles and Star fighters from the PT to make a return, but I don’t see how that would affect locations. I also just remembered that there was an article on here not too long ago stating the possibility of seeing familiar planets throughout the ST and spinoffs which will cater to both eras. Lookin forward to it.

            Locations, sure, but don’t you want to see new planets?

            Of course! And I hope they step up their game on the new planets we see. So far,(and I know this is gonna sound repetitive) the planets we’ve been receiving in my opinion have been bland and unoriginal. With the exception of Ach-To and Crait, those are looking pretty awesome. That’s only 2 unique locations out of the 6 (I believe) we’ve seen so far.

    You should contact Lucasfilm. I heard they’re taking special orders.

    “I think the OT has been catered enough post dinsey.”

    There have only been two films since the Disney acquisition. You very well might see some PT planets featured in future films, but it’s a bit early to be crying foul.

    “…and return to some existing planets”

    But then people would cry about a REHASH!!!!!11! So that won’t be happening.

      A return to some existing planets showing how they’ve changed would be of interest, so for example if Coruscant was displayed as a war-torn cityscape.

      Kashyyk wasn’t shown much in RotS, though could be visited in the Solo film, but ample of room to develop.

      The real meaning of rehash is not visiting the old stuff, rehash is making “new” stuff thta looks almost exactly as the old stuff. thats the bad thing. I think most of the fans will love to see some existing old panets.

        Well too bad, because Disney isn’t going to take that chance. Have a sand planet, REHASH. Have a walker, REHASH! Have a guy in black, REHASH. So no PT planets for you. You get what you wish for.

    Well, it can’t be denied that the new content is more OT-centered. But let’s not forget that Lucasfilm’s efforts were heavily concentrated toward the PT-era from roughly ’99 until the Disney acquisition in ’12. That’s nearly 15 years of PT-era related content. It’s not yet been two years since TFA was released. So, I just think it’s a bit too early to get antsy about seeing PT-related stuff take prominence once again. And unless I’m mistaken, the PT-era hasn’t been completely neglected. Elements of it have popped up in plenty of places.

      Not to mention this is the era after the OT. So naturally most of the evolution would be based on that.

    You got three movies in a row that took place on Coruscant and Naboo. How many more do you need? Sorry, I am done with those locations.
