The future Star Wars movies definitely aren’t affected by the dreaded Mystery Box as much as The Force Awakens was, as we’ll get a Rogue One comic mini-series in October.
ComicBook.com was at C2E2 this morning where Marvel made the announcement. There are no details on the comic yet, but it’ll be a three-issue mini-series followed by a fourth one-shot issue.
Trying to hide Rogue One in a Mystery Box makes zero sense. We already know it’s about the theft of Death Star plans (whether it’s Death Star I or the plans to Death Star II is up for debate), and it’s set in an era fans are getting very familiar with thanks to Star Wars Rebels. So this comic is likely just the tip of the iceberg for cool Rogue One stuff we’ll get prior to its December release.
