Marvel and Lucasfilm have announced a tie-in comic book mini-series to the upcoming video game STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER. The comic series will be entitled STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER: DARK TEMPLE. The series will be written by Matthew Rosenberg with illustrations by Paolo Villanelli.
The official Star Wars website says this about the story:
"...the tale follows Jedi Master Eno Cordova and his impulsive Padawan Cere Junda — on a seemingly simple mission that becomes much more dangerous. The Jedi Council sends the pair to the remote planet Ontotho to oversee the excavation of a mysterious temple; on Ontotho, dueling forces of local resistance and ruthless security troops clash in a war for the fate of the planet, with the Jedi caught in the middle."
Matthew Rosenberg told StarWars.com, "So having the chance to introduce audiences to some of the game’s cast, and explore a bit of who they are and how they got where they are is really fun. Cere Junda and Eno Cordova are a pair of Jedi that fans are definitely going to want to know more about, and this comic will tell you part of their story you won’t get anywhere else."
This definitely sounds like a story I want to read about. Especially, because I pretty much love any story set during the Prequel Trilogy era. Take a look at the cover art for issue #1 of STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER: DARK TEMPLE.
STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER: DARK TEMPLE #1 will hit comic book stores in September 2019. As for the video game, you can pre-order here. The video game will be released November 15, 2019. May the Force be with you.
