The new canon Star Wars novels may be connecting with the films and television series in big way! Jordan from Cinelinx is reporting that a character who will first appear in Star Wars: Lords of the Sith, the upcoming novel by Paul S. Kemp, slated to hit shelves on April 28th, will be appearing in one of the upcoming Star Wars stand alone films (possibly 2016's Rogue One) and the rumored new live action Star Wars TV series! As with all rumors, there is a chance this could be false, but if you are trying to avoid all Star Wars spoilers, then stop reading now. This is your official SPOILER ALERT!
The character is Moff Delian Mors, who also happens to be the first LGBT character of the new Star Wars canon. According to Jordan at Cinelinx,
"I've had two independent sources tell me that the Lucasfilm story group has plans for Delian Mors, plans that includes a big screen appearance, and possible outing in a live-action series. The primary thing I've heard is that Lucasfilm really wants to include Mors in one of the Star Wars spin-offs. My sources couldn't say specifically which standalone film, but were under the impression it could be Rogue One."
I have to say, i think this is really cool, if true. I think it's exciting that characters could be crossing over to multiple mediums. It's also nice to see that the LGBT characters will not be relegated to the books.
As always this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
