Marvel Star Wars: Return to Cloud City
It is, without a doubt, one of the most memorable settings in ALL of Star Wars lore. Cloud City.
Remember, while on the city floating high above Bespin, he told Leia Organa (Princess Leia):
“You look absolutely beautiful. You truly belong here with us among the clouds.”
Once the exclusive domain of Calrissian, in the upcoming issue of Marvel’s Star Wars current Star Wars series, Luke and Leia accompany the once baron administrator of the Cloud City facility in an attempt to retrieve Luke’s lost lightsaber.
You know the one once held by the hand lopped off by Darth Vader (and the same weapon given to Finn by Maz Kanata). For those of you living under the rock, this is THE lightsaber given to Luke by Obi-Wan Kenobi.
It’s the Star Wars version of Excaliber for goodness’ sake….
Anyway, the new run of the Star Wars comic filling in the canon between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. So, fans of all three eras of the Skywalker Saga will be enthralled by the details delivered by the writer-extraordinaire Charles Soule et al.
When you can’t use the Force, try the next best thing: Lando’s charm.
