For whatever reason, Lucasfilm seems to have developed an aversion to releasing adaptations of Star Wars movies in anything close to a timely manner. Jason Fry’s novelization of The Last Jedi landed in March, and Marvel’s comic book adaptation is only now making its debut. When your adaptation is that far behind the curve, it becomes all the more important that it brings something new and different to the table. It’s not enough for Marvel’s Last Jedi Adaptation to just go through the motions and tell the same story fans have become intimately familiar with over the past six months. Unfortunately, it seems content to do that anyway.
