Lucasfilm Publishing's STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC launches
Jan 08 2021
In this new saga, five high-profile, fan-favorite Star Wars authors tell an epic, interconnected story - across multiple publishers and formats for different age groups - establishing a new timeline of Star Wars storytelling for generations to come. Oh, and it was also announced that StarWars.com will begin a new bi-weekly show hosted by Krystina Arielle that will give an in-depth and behind-the-scenes look at The High Republic with its creators, artists, and authors.
The novel has been described as a "promising" start by critics, with many praising the portrayal of the Jedi that some felt was lacking in the prequels.
Discuss Star Wars: The High Republic, along with its many spin-off off tie-in titles, right here! The Jedi are at their height, protecting the galaxy as Republic pioneers push out into new territories. And then it all goes wrong in a mysterious cataclysmic event known simply as The Great Disaster that brings the Republic and Jedi in contact with a risky new enemy known as the Nihil. What intrigues me is how these Phases will line up with The Acolyte, the new live-action Star Wars TV series announced by Lucasfilm during the jam-packed Disney+ Investors Day panel late a year ago. A threat hides in the darkness, far from the light of the age, and harbors a secret that could strike fear into even a Jedi's heart.
In May 2020, Lucasfilm announced that The High Republic's release schedule would be delayed from August 2020 to January 2021.
