Veteran animation and comic book writer Greg Weisman, whose new "Star Wars" comic book series "Kanan: The Last Padawan" recently debuted from Marvel, joined CBR TV's Albert Ching during WonderCon 2015 in Anaheim, CA for an eventful conversation about his many projects in the world famous CBR Tiki Room. Weisman discusses how he came aboard the project, what its scope will be and his contributions to the "Star Wars Rebels" mythology both during his time on the animated series and now with a chance to flesh out more of the backstory for fans.
"[Lucasfilm Story Group] wanted to do the story of Order 66 coming down, of how it was that Kanan survived it," Weisman said of the goals for the comic set 15 years before "Rebels." "This isn't designed to be comprehensive. This isn't like the full story of how Kanan becomes Kanan. You know he starts as 14-year-old Caleb Dume, Padawan to Master Depa Billaba, and this tells about six to eight months of his life. It's not like we take him from age 14 all the way to age 29, it's just a piece of the puzzle. But the good news is, obviously we do know Order 66 -- it's a hugely important piece of the puzzle. This is a significant event in his life."
