“The High Republic” is a collection of comics and books taking place 200 years before “The Phantom Menace.”
- Yoda features prominently as a member of the Jedi Council in “The Phantom Menace.”
- Yoda was about 900 years old at the time of “The Phantom Menace,” which would make him about 700 around the time of “The High Republic.”
So where does Yoda appear?
Yoda will be different to what we know of him in the prequel series.
- “It’s especially exciting to be able to introduce him in the era of the High Republic,” Older told StarWars.com. “The High Republic Yoda is a journeyman out in the galaxy.” According to Older, the Emperor’s “little green friend” will still be treading somewhat familiar ground — that of teacher.
- “While he’s already a respected member of the Jedi Council at this point, we meet Yoda in IDW’s ‘The High Republic Adventures’ series doing what he loves best: looking out for the young folks — in this case, a group of Padawans traveling around the galaxy to learn the ways of the Jedi with a hands-on approach,” Older said. “The Force study abroad program, basically.”
A note on Yoda’s appearance
- “Well, Yoda is not that much younger — around 700 years old instead of about 900. But we thought that with it being hundreds of years earlier, he would definitely have a different outfit, maybe even more than one,” said Alders. “His age, as far as the way that his hair and face look, is maybe just slightly younger, but fairly close to his look in ‘Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.’”
- “This mission outfit, with just tonal markings on the robe, are inspired by the Jedi Temple architectural details. Many new fans may not even notice these very subtle additions,” Alders says. “The temple attire, however, from this special time of the golden age of the Jedi, feels so right with its elegance, and we are all extremely grateful for the artists that helped us arrive at such a beautiful solution for this important milestone in the ‘Star Wars’ timeline.”
