Mara Jade Will Reportedly Make Her Live-Action Debut In Kevin Feige’s Star Wars Movie
When Disney killed off the Star Wars expanded universe, one of the most tragic casualties was Mara Jade. Created by author Timothy Zahn, she made her debut in the 1991 novel Heir to the Empire. After that, she rapidly became a firm fan favorite, her character starting out as an Emperor’s Hand (a Dark Jedi entrusted with secret missions), before turning to the light side, sitting on the Jedi Council and eventually marrying Luke Skywalker. In a fan poll, Jade was even named the 20th most popular Star Wars character, beating out many others who’d appeared in the movies.
