Next Star Wars: Boba Fett comic set during Shadows of the Empire

Next Star Wars: Boba Fett comic set during Shadows of the Empire

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters isn't the comic we expected it would be. The teaser and the setup seemed to suggest that the new Boba Fett comic would take place after the bounty hunter retrieved his armor in The Mandalorian. Instead, the comic will take place immediately after The Empire Strikes Back, at approximately the same time as the latest Darth Vader comic series.

New comic says Darth Vader foresaw a different future

New comic says Darth Vader foresaw a different future

Canonical comic series Darth Vader (Pak, Ienco, Menon) released issue 10 this month with a giant revelation. It would appear that Darth Vader was shown his own future in the span of time between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. This should come as little surprise for those that believe Jedi can actually see the distant future in the Star Wars universe - but for Vader, this has some dire implications.

This book does not include any bit of data or story that Lucasfilm, Disney, or otherwise, would consider "Legends."

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novel edits Rey’s parents, yet again

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker novel edits Rey’s parents, yet again

It would appear that Star Wars lore just cannot stay solid as, just this week, Rey's parentage changed yet again. As events and details in the novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker showed, the official word on the origin of Rey's parents is not exactly what you might've assumed, given the details present in the film. Further, it would seem that the actor who played Emperor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) shed some light on an earlier version of the films' script, after the impenetrable wall of Lucasfilm NDA fell at the film's premiere. This is where I say SPOILER ALERT if you'd like to remain unspoiled.
