SET TWO CENTURIES BEFORE The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: The High Republic takes place during a time when both the Galactic Republic and the Jedi are at their height.
It’s composed of a series of independent but interconnected comics and novels, including Cavan Scott and Ario Anindito’s Marvel monthly Star Wars: The High Republic, Charles Soule’s novel Light Of The Jedi, and Daniel Jose Older and Harvey Tolibao’s all-ages comics series for IDW, Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures.
“This is a period that has never really been explored, either in the modern Star Wars canon or the old Expanded Universe,” says Scott. “This is an era where the Jedi have been living through a period of extended peace, which has affected the way that they operate. In fact, it’s affected the galaxy as a whole, as the Republic is going through something of a creative and technological renaissance. It’s a period of hope and optimism, but a storm is brewing on the horizon.”
“The best thing about working in the High Republic is that we don’t know what happens,” continues Soule. “Because the era is 200 years before Episode I, you get the best of both worlds. You can reference technology, institutions, planets and even some characters or families existing fans might be familiar with, but you can do hugely new things with them.”
