@Marvel to Publish Star Wars Comics in 2015 @Disney


Well we knew this day was coming. When Disney acquired Lucasfilms the question wasn't if Dark Horse was going to lose it, but a matter of when. Previously it was thought that they would hold the rights up to 2015 and the release of Episode VII and now The Walt Disney Company’s Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment have announced they will start publishing beginning in 2015. You can read the full press release below.


"The Walt Disney Company’s Lucasfilm Ltd. and Marvel Entertainment are joining forces to bring new Star Wars adventures to readers across the galaxy, with Marvel granted exclusive rights to create and publish Star Wars comics and graphic novels beginning in 2015."
"The agreement marks a homecoming for the Star Wars comic books. Marvel Comics published the first Star Wars comic book, Star Wars #1, in March 1977, which went on to sell more than 1 million copies. Marvel Comics published its Star Wars series for nine years. In 1991, Dark Horse Comics took over the license, publishing fan-favorite titles likeDark Empire and Star Wars: Legacy. Last year, Dark Horse released The Star Wars #1, an adaptation of George Lucas’ original rough-draft screenplay for the film, garnering rave reviews and national media attention and ranking among the top-selling Star Wars comics of all time." 
"'Dark Horse Comics published exceptional Star Wars comics for over 20 years, and we will always be grateful for their enormous contributions to the mythos, and the terrific partnership that we had,'" said Carol Roeder, director of Lucasfilm franchise publishing, Disney Publishing Worldwide. 'In 2015, the cosmic adventures of Luke, Han, Leia and Chewbacca will make the lightspeed jump back to Marvel, to begin a new age of adventures within the Star Wars universe.'" 
"We here at Marvel could not be more excited to continue the publication of Star Warscomic books and graphic novels,” said Marvel Worldwide Publisher and President, Dan Buckley. “The perennial brand of Star Wars is one of the most iconic in entertainment history and we are honored to have the opportunity to bring our creative talent pool to continue, and expand Star Wars into galaxies far, far away." 
"'We’re incredibly excited by this next chapter in the Star Wars saga,' said Andrew B. Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide. 'Bringing together the iconic Lucasfilm and Marvel brands to tell new stories will allow us to continue to thrill lovers of the original Star Wars comic books and entertain generations to come.'" 
"Marvel has continued to push comic book publishing forward with innovations and experiments like motion comics and digital-only releases, in addition to its deep, ongoing catalog of monthly series and graphic novels created by some of the industry’s most gifted artists and writers."
