    Long have we waited...and now the wait is almost over. The long teased Project Luminous will finally have details revealed at an event being held on February 24. The project is being developed by Disney Lucasfilm Press, with Michael Siglain serving as Editor, and authored by  Cavan Scott, Claudia Gray, Charles Soule, Daniel José Older, and Justina Ireland. In addition to this, Disney boss Bob Iger will hold the company's Quarter 1 earnings call/webcast on February 4.

    Our friend Clayton Sandell of ABC News tweeted the announcement last night.


    Project Luminous will include both comics and books to tell one cohesive story. There have been many rumors swirling about what the project entails, none of which have been confirmed to this point, but being that an event is being held to unveil the details, we have to assume it's much bigger than just new series of books and comics. A lot of common ground speculation among fans, bloggers, and podcasts is that this will be the launching point for a new era in Star Wars storytelling, perhaps kicking off the ground work leading up to a new set of films, video games, and series, but that remains to be seen. We will find out in just under four weeks.

    While we wait for the details on Project Luminous, Disney will be holding a webcast detailing the fiscal first quarter of 2020.

    For historical perspective, the Star Wars information featured in last year's Quarter 1 earnings call was limited to video game licensing for future Star Wars games. You can refresh your memory on that call here. We'll see if this year's call is juicier than last year's but its best to assume nothing so if we do find out anything interesting,  it's a pleasant surprise!

    February appears to be the month where Star Wars news starts to heat up again, and we eagerly away to find out what is revealed during the Project Luminous event on February 24.


    As there are a lot of rumors running around about what Project Luminous could be, Clayton clarified in a new tweet that this event will mainly focus on the publishing side of Star Wars. So don't expect some breaking movie/TV announcements.

    They had me at the logo.

    They lost me at "Project Luminous will include both comics and books"

    If it is indeed about the Force and Force users, i want to see it on the screen, preferably the big screen, at the least a TV show, and a LIVE ACTION TV show.

    Comics and books isn't where the main stuff should be expanded on especially when it comes to the Force Centric stuff. Put the pilots, scoundrels, bounty hunter crap in books and comics...

    I know it's weird to put this kind of effort into books and comics of all places. That being said, the rumor mill suggests it's much bigger. In that, it will be a game and eventually a movie.
