StarWars.com has announced a new comic book miniseries, “Star Wars: Halcyon Legacy,” which will debut next year and take readers on a new adventure that ties into Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
The five-issue miniseries will be written by Ethan Sacks, who wrote the recent “Star Wars: Bounty Hunters” run, with art by Will Sliney, whose work includes “Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren” and more. The series will also reunite the creative team behind the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge comic miniseries for a new adventure that ties into the first-of-its-kind experience opening at Walt Disney World Resort in March 2022.
In the summer of 1977, my life was forever changed as a four-year-old by two experiences that have seared themselves in my brain for all these years: Seeing ‘Star Wars’ in the movie theater and visiting [Walt] Disney World for the first time.
The chance to contribute to the lore of both with ‘Halcyon Legacy,’ the tale of the ship that will be an integral memory for so many fellow fans, is an incredible honor. And to re-team with my ‘Galaxy’s Edge’ co-pilot, artist extraordinaire Will Sliney, makes it extra-special.
I promise we’ll bake that joy into every page of every issue as we take you on a journey across 275 years of epic adventures, from the High Republic through the time of the first order. You’re going to enjoy this ride.Ethan Sacks, author of “Star Wars: Halcyon Legacy”
With a story that spans across centuries, readers can revisit the ship at different points in the Star Wars timeline, see familiar faces like Lando Calrissian and Hondo Ohnaka teaming up for the first time, and travel the stars with a featured tale that leads into the events of the experience coming to Walt Disney World — taking place between “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
As a life-long Star Wars fan, I’m thrilled to be a part of the team helping bring ‘Halcyon Legacy’ to life.
We’ve all been able to experience Star Wars in so many ways over the years, from watching the films to playing with the toys to reading the comics to even visiting Batuu and drinking at the cantina, but now Walt Disney World is taking things to the next level with this immersive, interactive experience.
Our series will get you up to speed on this important part of the galaxy far, far away as you prepare to put on your cloak, pick up your lightsaber and blast off in Orlando.C.B. Cebulski, Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics
