- “The High Republic” is a series of novels and comic books set 200 years before the Skywalker Saga. The series is meant to show the Jedi Knights in their prime before their eventual downfall.
Justina Irelan and Shima Shinya will write the project with art coming from Mizuki Sakakibara.
- The outposts are located on planets throughout the galaxy on planets that don’t have a large Galactic Republic presence.
The new series was announced Monday at a live event where more details of the series were shared with the world. As I wrote about for the Deseret News, a new trailer for the series was unveiled at the event, showing the Jedi Knights organizing for a major incident that happens at the far reaches of space.
- The new series does feel authentic like “Star Wars,” though it misses several of the characters from the original trilogy. But it’s definitely new content for the community, which people will want to check out.
