Star Wars Celebration 2017 runs from April 13-16 in Orlando, FL. In addition to fan service of all kinds, expect closer looks at Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Marvel and Lucasfilm are teaming up for a new Star Wars miniseries to help fans bridge the period between the ending of The Force Awakens and Rian Johnson’s upcoming The Last Jedi.

The comic book publisher made the announcement yesterday, confirming its newest Star Wars comic would focus on Captain Phasma. Star Wars: Captain Phasma will run for four issues and explore how the Captain of the First Order made her daring escape from Starkiller Base.

The series will be written by Kelly Thompson (Hawkeye, Star Wars Annual) and Marco Checchetto (Star Wars: Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Gamora), featuring art from Paul Renaud (X-Force). The cover of the first issue can be seen in full below.

Star Wars: Captain Phasma will launch in September, just a few months ahead of The Last Jedi.

Following the release of the film, Lucasfilm and Marvel have released a couple of other Star Wars comics. One of the most popular focuses on the beloved Resistance fighter pilot, Poe Dameron.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on Dec. 15.
