Dark Horse Comics has released a new video trailer to promote their upcoming eight-issue comic mini-series “The Star Wars”.

Scribe J.W. Rinzler and artist Mike Mayhew have penned the graphic novel using George Lucas famed and very different first draft script for 1977s “Star Wars”.

Penned years earlier, the original script follows General Luke Skywalker and newcomer Annikin Starkiller joining forces to combat the Galactic Empire. In this, there are no lightsabers – only laser swords.

Familiar characters have very different looks in that draft, such as a reptilian alien Han Solo, while Vader in the film is an amalgamation of three separate characters from this script draft.

The first issue of the comic hits physical and digital stores on September 4th.
