New Jedi Await in ‘Star Wars: The High Republic’

When Lucasfilm announced for the first time that they were opening the “Star Wars” chronology with the introduction of a completely new time span, their ambitions were great. The action “High Republic”takes place about 200 years before the events of the” Ghostly Threat”. A time when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order buzzed with benevolent efficiency, content and confident in their good intentions and incorruptibility. The LucasBooks department has promised novels and comics for all ages that will immerse fans in a whole new era of Star Wars.

They did not joke around. In January 2021, the first three novels will appear during “Star Wars: The High Republic”. The Light of the Jedi by Charles Soul is an introductory novel for adults, Claudia Gray is for the crowd YA and the Muttest by author Justin Ireland and illustrator Petur Antonsson is for middle-class readers. I was lucky enough to get advanced copies of all three before the release, and it is clear that Lucasfilm did its due validation. All three books are so interconnected that they reinforce each other without being critical to the understanding of the other two. All three are full of knowledge and a large ensemble of actors who immediately breathe life into an environment that is both familiar and alien. Even if you usually shy away from reading books labeled “For children,” and “In the Dark” and “Trial of courage” are entertaining enough and well written for an adult audience.

The trio of books have been falling apart in the Highest Republic for weeks, at a critical moment in the Galactic Republic. When a hyperspace anomaly triggers a catastrophe that threatens the food basket of the Outer Ring, the delicate diplomacy between the republic and the border regions – basically everything from the inner ring to the outer ring — threatens to disintegrate. Looking at dozens of intelligent species in the galaxy, the Higher Republic wastes no time in demonstrating the extent of its history through the “hereditary start-up incident” and its effects in the galaxy, especially in the Hetzel system. An agricultural solar system, with a technologically improved growth times, every surface of every planet and moon in Hetzel is optimized to provide trillions of life forms in the outer Ring. Hetzel scientists are also working on advanced biotechnologies such as new applications of bacta algae.

Without spoilers below is a primer for many of the most important movers and shakers in a distant galaxy at a time when Master Yoda was not yet on the Supreme Council, and Anakin Skywalker was just a foggy prophecy in the musty Jedi archive. Some of these characters could appear on Disney+, with the recent announcement of The Acolyte, a live TV series taking place at the end of the Great Republic. A new era has begun.
