Marvel will publish a five-issue comic-book series called “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — Dark Temple,” Lucasfilm announced on Tuesday. The miniseries will serve as a prequel to Respawn Entertainment’s upcoming video game “Jedi: Fallen Order.”

“Written by Matthew Rosenberg (‘Uncanny X-Men’ and ‘The Punisher’) and illustrated by Paolo Villanelli (‘Vader: Dark Visions’), the tale follows Jedi Master Eno Cordova and his impulsive Padawan Cere Junda — on a seemingly simple mission that becomes much more dangerous,” StarWars.com writes. “The Jedi Council sends the pair to the remote planet Ontotho to oversee the excavation of a mysterious temple; on Ontotho, dueling forces of local resistance and ruthless security troops clash in a war for the fate of the planet, with the Jedi caught in the middle.” Cere Junda is the character portrayed by actress Debra Wilson in “Fallen Order.”

“Dark Temple” #1 will hit stores in September.
