The Star Wars: Synopsis


A companion to the eight-issue adaptation of The Star Wars, this is an exclusive peek behind the scenes at the designs that have brought a new—yet incredibly familiar—galaxy to life.

Included in this volume are the never-before-seen comics sequences that were used in Dark Horse’s pitch to George Lucas!


Before Star Wars, there was The Star Wars! This is the authorized adaptation of George Lucas’s rough-draft screenplay of what would eventually become a motion picture that would change the world.

Annikin Starkiller is the hero . . . Luke Skywalker is a wizened Jedi general . . . Han Solo is a big green lizard . . . and the Sith . . . Well, the Sith are still the bad guys. High adventure and derring-do from longer ago, in a galaxy further away!


The Empire is poised for an attack on the peaceful world of Aquilae, and only Jedi General Luke Skywalker seems concerned. When King Kayos is killed, Jedi in training Annikin Starkiller is ordered to find Princess Leia, while Skywalker sends his only squadron against the Empire’s powerful new battle station!


A Queen steps down! The Hidden Fortress destroyed! The Imperial army on the march!

Annikin Starkiller and Princess Leia rescue two wayward droids in the desert, Darth Vader recruits a famous Knight of the Sith to his army, and a squad of lazersword-wielding Stormtroopers attempt to arrest Jedi General Luke Skywalker!


General Skywalker and Jedi-in-training Annikin Starkiller have a deadly encounter with mounted Stormtroopers! An encounter with outlaws in a cantina leads to a meeting with smuggler Han Solo! And a Jedi makes the ultimate sacrifice to save one of Princess Leia’s younger brothers!


Remember the scene in Star Wars where the Sith Knight traps General Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Annikin Starkiller, and the alien Han Solo—and they have to fight their way free and steal an Imperial starship? No? That’s because this is The Star Wars—based on George Lucas’s original rough-draft screenplay! Experience a Star Wars that never was!


A dogfight with Imperial fighter craft, a dangerous detour through an asteroid field, and a forced evacuation in life-pods land Luke Skywalker and company on Yavin—the planet of the Wookiees!


When Princess Leia falls into the hands of Darth Vader, General Skywalker, Annikin Starkiller, and Han Solo must go on the offensive against the Galactic Empire. But they have a secret weapon on their side—one that the Imperials have vastly underestimated: Wookiees!


Annikin Starkiller fights Darth Vader and Prince Valorum to save Princess Leia! Luke Skywalker and the Wookiees attack the Empire’s Space Fortress! This is the final battle! It’s like nothing you’ve seen before, but it’s all Star Wars!


The Star Wars: Review

My full review will follow the final release of The Star Wars #8. However, lets just say, that currently… I am in love with this series. I think it would be great to continue on with this story arc and finish of the remaining “Episodes” of Star Wars.
