This May, writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Wars Rebels) joins artist Michael Walsh (Star Wars Annual, Hawkeye, The Vision) for a thrilling adaptation of the hit blockbuster STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, as they follow Rey, Poe and Finn in their adventures across the galaxy, featuring never-before-seen material!

The six-issue miniseries tells an all-new, exciting story that movie and comic fans alike will enjoy. It’s new Star Wars stories in a tale you already know: relive the magic of Rey’s heroism, Finn’s bravery and Poe’s daringness in STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI ADAPTATION, out this May!

Interesting they are going to include additional material not seen in the film.  I wonder if this indicates that LF/Disney acknowledges some cut footage should have remained in the film, or if this is entirely new material, or a combination thereof.  Some are speculating there will be more backstory to Snoke, Luke, Rey, Kylo, etc.

Is this a somewhat liberal use of the term "all-new"? Or is it all-new? Or is it an adaptation? I'm confused.

My understanding is they will be depicting the film, but also add additional scenes that were not in the film.

Its more likely because it was written from an earlier draft than the shooting script. Most book and comic adaptions are.

That brings up another question: I wonder if this means what will be included in the comic series will also be in the novelization.    Time will tell, for sure, but fun to wonder about and speculate on.

The novelization was actually written later than usual. It comes out March 6. This was specifically done per Rian Johnson's request - he didn't want the book coming out the same day as the movie and possibly lead to leaks beforehand. The author of the novelization, Jason Fry, met with Rian to discuss creating new scenes and adapting deleting scenes. Here's a featurette from the latest Star Wars Show: https://twitter.com/...901836349091840
