Scott Allie - Dark Horse Bosses To Publish George Lucas' Star Wars Script As Comic Series

Dark Horse Comics boss Scott Allie has secured the rights to publish George Lucas' original Star Wars script as an eight-issue graphic novel series.

The comics will be available from September (13).

Lucas drafted the script back in 1974 and the first Star Wars movie hit the big screen in 1977.

Six episodes of the epic sci-fi saga have been released and last year (12) Lucas sold the rights to the franchise to Disney bosses, who are in the process of creating a seventh film with many of the original cast members reprising their characters from almost 40 years ago.
