The Yen Press Star Wars manga line is also growing in another direction as they’ve picked up the rights to the Star Wars Rebels manga adaptation. Set for the fall in print and digital with details to come, this one works to adapt the TV series that ran from 2014 to 2018, which I just started rewatching as some of these characters are going to show up in the upcoming seasons of The Mandalorian.
“The critically-acclaimed show featured fan-favorite Star Wars characters, such as Kanan Jarrus, who was the focus of his own novel and comic book series, and Chopper, a droid who made a brief appearance in the film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
Plot Concept: Set during an era when the Galactic Empire is hunting down the last of the Jedi, a fledgling rebellion against the Empire begins to take form. Star Wars Rebels takes place in the area surrounding the planet Lothal, where the Galactic Empire battles against Ezra, a teenage con artist with latent Force abilities, Kanan, one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order, and the rest of the ragtag rebels on board the starship Ghost.
