Star Wars: The High Republic

IDW Publishing will once again venture into A Galaxy Far Far Away with a new ongoing comic book series titled Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures which explores a world set 200 years prior to the events of the well-known 'Skywalker Saga' film continuity.

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures will be written by Daniel José Older, with art from Harvey Tolibao and Rebecca Nalty. The previously-announced Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign will include comic books, prose, and potentially other media.

"In Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, the Jedi have long maintained galactic peace… but the coming of a powerful new adversary called the Nihil threatens to end it all," reads IDW's official description.

"Now, a group of Master Yoda's young Padawan learners must protect the Republic while learning the lessons that will one day lead them to become powerful Jedi in their own right."

Despite taking place hundreds of years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I, The High Republic Adventures will feature at least one familiar Star Wars mainstay: Yoda.

"Daniel, Harvey, and Rebecca have crafted a truly thrilling comic series for fans of all ages. Featuring a dual narrative that focuses on the heroic Jedi and the sinister Nihil, The High Republic Adventures has it all: a diverse group of young Padawans who find themselves in over their heads, lightsaber action, mysterious new villains, more lightsaber action, and Master Yoda, and that's just the first two issues. This one is not to be missed," states Lucasfilm Publishing creative director Michael Siglain.

Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures #1 is due out February 3, 2021.
