Star Wars Infinites is a trilogy of graphic novels originally published by Dark Horse Comics from 2002 to 2004. Each comic represents a stand-alone, non-canon version of each respective film in the original. star wars trilogy — A new hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi – revealing what things would have looked like if the events of those movies had turned out a little differently.
For example, the years 2002 Star Wars Infinities: A New Hope tells an alternate version of the original star wars movie where Luke Skywalker’s proton torpedoes failed to destroy the Death Star. Assuming the Death Star was destroyed like in the movie, however, the 2003s Star Wars Infinities: The Empire Strikes Back explores an alternate timeline where Luke froze to death on Hoth. Finally, assuming both star wars and Empire happened as they were supposed to, 2004 Star Wars Infinities: Return of the Jedi shows what would have happened had C-3PO been unable to translate for Leia Organa in disguise during the latter’s bet to save Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt.
This premise is quite similar to the long-running Marvel Comics series what ifwhich debuted in 1977 (the year of the first star wars movie came out, funny enough). what if offers insight into alternate realities where key moments in Marvel history played out differently than they did in the main continuity. In 2021, Marvel Studios adapted the comic into a Disney+ animated series titled What if…?which applies this same premise to the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leading fans to wonder if star wars could get similar treatment under the Disney banner.
the star wars: The Black Series 6-Inch Infinities Darth Vader figure will go on sale in 2023 from Hasbro.
