  • Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi | Movie News



    Star Wars #49 plot summary:

    Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker and the droids take a Y-wing fighter to a jungle planet where they answer a beacon left behind by Prince Denid of Velmor. Denid, his betrothed Loren, and his friend Jedidiah crash-landed on this world years ago, a crash that claimed Loren's life. It is now imperative that he returns to Velmor to take the rite of succession or else his younger brother, an Imperial sympathizer, will gain control of the planet. Luke is surprised to find that Jedidiah, now addle-brained due to an injury, was once a potential Jedi Knight.

    With Luke disguised as a bounty hunter, and Leia disguised as Loren, they escort Prince Denid back to Velmor to claim the throne just in time to prevent the coronation of Denid's brother Anod as the new king. This frustrates not only Anod but also Zelor and Imperial Captain Zeta Traal, each of whom have their own plans for power.

    At the ceremonial Mrid Hunt to commemorate the return of Denid, Traal plans to have Denid and Leia killed in order to keep the planet sympathetic to the Empire. Zelor also desires the two would-be leaders dead, but for his own personal gain since he would rule the planet if no one of royal blood could take the throne. In the ensuing battle Denid and Leia are wounded by Anod, but Anod himself is killed by Traal. Zelor intends to kill Luke thinking the brash scoundrel would be no match for him with his energy sword, but he doesn't realize that Luke is a skilled swordsman who easily defeats Zelor. But during the duel, Traal has a clear shot at them both but is interrupted by Jedidiah who bravely sacrifices himself to prevent Luke from being captured.

    With all of the conspirators either killed or captured, Denid is free to become King of Velmor and pledges to be sympathetic to the Rebellion. Luke, Leia and the droids bid farewell to Denid and leave Velmor, and Luke takes charge of Jedidiah's body and gives him a funeral in space in honor of the fallen hero's bravery.

    ..........

    It seems Jedidiah was the last "Jedi" the title of the comic was referring to. I don't know, maybe @David_D found something in the comic that the plot summary is missing, but other than the title it doesn't seem to have much to do with the movie.

    @Adam_Murdough it is my understanding that writer Gerry Duggan spent time explaining how the gems are now stones in one of the comics he writes. I have to confess I haven't been reading much Marvel lately and don't know which title it was.

    After hearing more praise for Black Hammer from Chris on this episode I've decided to make Black Hammer vol. 1 my next read, looking forward to it!
    It's very good and I think you'll enjoy it. :)
