SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE BY STEVE PERRY
Shadows of the Empire was a multimedia event kicked off by Lucasfilm in 1996, which featured everything except a movie. It centers around the novel written by Steve Perry, which fills the gap between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
In addition, a six-part comic book series written by John Wagner was published by Dark Horse Comics.
The story also expanded into an extremely popular video game published by Lucasarts for the Nintendo 64 (and later for the PC).
While the main story is laid out in the novel, both the comics and the game flesh out parallel story lines from the points of view of different characters. For our film, we intend to write a screenplay based primarily on the novel with additional story elements from the comics and the game.
