When big movies get made, it's inevitable many scenes get deleted in order to make the film watchable for most viewers.

Even though some deleted scenes are to be included in the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Blu-ray/DVD, we might also see more scenes in the comic book adaptation.

Disney released a press release announcing the Star Wars: The Last Jedi comic book being made by Marvel. You can read the official announcement below.

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!

The first two issues of the comic book should be available in stores on May 2nd, 2018. After that four more issues will be released after that date to complete the series.

It will be interesting to see what other scenes are added that were not in the theatrical cut of the film.

Director Rian Johnson had to trim down the film since it is already 2 and a half hours long and Disney were not keen on releasing a Star Wars film that was 3 hours long.

The next Star Wars movie to look forward to is Solo: A Star Wars Story out this May. The first trailer for the film is expected to either land this Sunday or Monday.
