The latest Star Wars film is getting a comic book adaptation. Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta is adapting The Last Jedi for a six-issue miniseries, the first of which will hit stores on May 2nd.

Whitta will be joined by artists Michael Walsh and Mike Spicer, while former Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Queseda will produce a variant cover featuring Rey on Jakku. On his Instagram page (via io9) Walsh says that they will be adding new scenes and will tell “others from a new perspective.”

That’s not the only adaptation of the film coming this spring: a novelization, written by Jason Fry, is hitting bookstores on March 6th, which will also contain a number of additional scenes.
