Star Wars: The High Republic Yoda Concept Art

The beginning of Star Wars: The High Republic may have been delayed until next year, but that’s not stopping Lucasfilm from teasing what’s in store for the major new publishing initiative set 200 years before the events of The Skywalker Saga. Though the new initiative will mostly focus on an entirely new roster of characters, there’s a certain Jedi who has been around the galaxy long enough that he was already part of the Jedi Council during this time.

An upcoming comic book series by Daniel José Olde called Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures will introduce us to a younger version of Yoda. Granted, he’s only 200 years younger, so he doesn’t look remarkably different, but he will have a new wardrobe, as illustrated in new concept art that has just been revealed. Read More »

The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

Lucasfilm Publishing has a major new publishing initiative being added to the Star Wars universe called The High Republic. Set 200 years before the Skywalker saga began, stories will unfold in a time when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at the height of their power, serving as true guardians of peace and justice around the galaxy. While Lucasfilm is still playing its cards pretty close to the vest with the upcoming stories in this older era of Star Wars, there were new details revealed during the company’s Comic-Con at Home panel today, including a new character with a connection to Star Wars canon during the time of the original trilogy.

However, if the High Republic side of things isn’t the kind of Star Wars content you’re looking for, then you might be happy to hear about the announcement of The Art of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge book that’s in the works, or maybe some new details about the upcoming collection of tales inspired by The Empire Strikes Back in the next installment of the new From A Certain Point of View anthology. Get all the details on these upcoming Star Wars books below. Read More »

Star Wars: The High Republic Jedi Characters

It’s been roughly 37 years since 2020 started, so you might have forgotten about Lucasfilm’s announcement of a forthcoming publishing initiative called Star Wars: The High Republic, previously known by the codename Project Luminous. The new endeavor will tell a series of interconnected stories told across multiple publishers in the form of novels, comics, young adult books, and more, all set 200 years before the Skywalker saga began. It’s a time when the Jedi Order were noble and respected, serving as the guardians of peace and justice. Before the dark times. Before the Empire.

Star Wars: The High Republic initially revealed some concept art that introduced us to the more regal, distinct Jedi characters who were dressed in rather grand robes and cloaks. Now they’ve properly shown off some of those Jedi Knights and Jedi Masters with new concept art and character details, including names for you to mispell and wrongly pronounce. Meet the new Star Wars: The High Republic Jedi characters below. Read More »
