NYCC: Disney Has Viz Publish ‘Star Wars’ & ‘Frozen’ Manga Titles

In the grand tradition of giving its properties to companies other than Marvel to publish as comics, Disney is doing it again. This time the company is Viz and the properties are Star Wars and Frozen. Star Wars will be getting a new series next year from Marvel, but also has comics published by IDW, while Frozen titles are published by Dark Horse.

Billed as manga, the Star Wars title that Viz will be publishing is Star Wars: The Legends of Luke Skywalker. It is a new manga title and will have several creators working on it, including the duo who make the Legend of Zelda manga published by Viz, Akira Himekawa. Other creators working on this title are Akira Fukaya, Takashi Kisaki, and Subaru. Star Wars: The Legends of Luke Skywalker will arrive in early 2020.
