Lucasfilm to launch Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign
Star Wars: The High Republic is set centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. It takes place during the prime of the Jedi Order. The story introduces new heroes to cheer on, new worlds to explore, and new threats to face.
In the all-new era of the glorious Star Wars: The High Republic, the noble and wise Jedi Knights must face a frightening threat to themselves, the galaxy, and to the Force itself. It is an immersive new era ripe for exploration, when Jedi Knights uphold peace and justice in a galaxy experiencing a kind of tranquility as they pioneer the Outer Rim. New characters are introduced, their lives and hopes laid out for readers, only to be dashed in the next sentence as the system-wide emergency takes shape. And through it all, the Jedi emerge as heroic as the stories of old, courageous individuals rushing into the fray, prepared to do whatever it takes to bring some semblance of calm back to every last corner of their beloved galaxy.
New Stories will explore the galaxy set 200 years before the events of The Phantom Menace.
