In a good example of milking something until it’s drier than a mouthful of Tattooine sand, Lucasfilm is set to release a comic book adaptation of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. You may be tired of having to seek out answers in other forms of media, and while I would be inclined to agree with you this adaptation has an interesting aspect to it, as it will implement deleted and extended scenes from the film.
Jody Mauser, who wrote the comic revealed this information during an interview with StarWars.com. Mauser spoke on how adding unused scenes from the film gave him a unique opportunity to enhance or elaborate on scenes that were excluded from the theatrical release. You can check it out below.
“I think one of the great things about adaptations in other mediums is you do get the chance to build out elements of the story there may not have been a time or a place for on the screen. Giving light to new scenes gives the creators in these other mediums a chance to add to the story, rather than just translating it for the page.”
I think this is a pretty cool idea, but if these scenes deserve to be seen, or shown n a new way, I would think they should have made it into the film, but who knows, there could be perfectly reasonable explanations to why they were left on the cutting room floor. Many unanswered questions still remain from the film, and putting additional story aspects into the comic will, at the very least, help fill in those gaps.
