Marvel Comics revealed plans for a Rogue One comic book series launching in October 2016.

He offered no further details on the series, but the slides reveals it to be a 3-issue series plus a One-Shot. UPDATE: ComicBook.com can confirm that the series is a prequel series.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story doesn’t hit theaters until December, so it’s safe to assume this won’t be an adaptation. The safer bet is that it will be a prequel meant to introduce us to the film’s heroes ahead of the theatrical release.

Check out when Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and other movies are coming out in ComicBook.com's Movie Release Schedule.

    -It reminds me about the tv series with spaceships from the late 90's ,which was the golden era of sci-fi for the small screens..Andromeda..Farscape..Star Trek..but is too bad that Disney doesn't want to bring this new story on our televisions as a tv show for grown-ups , even now, when Falling Skies is the only watchable sci-fi show .
