Star Wars is introducing fans to a new era full of adventure and darkness in The High Republic. Lucasfilm will kick off that era with a live stream event the day before the first wave of The High Republic stories release.
On January 4th at 9 p.m. PT, StarWars.com and YouTube will host an event featuring all five authors of The High Republic's launch stories: Claudia Gray (Into the Dark), Justina Ireland (A Test of Courage), Daniel José Older (IDW Publishing’s The High Republic Adventures), Cavan Scott (Marvel’s The High Republic), and Charles Soule (Light of the Jedi).
The stream will also include Lucasfilm Publishing’s Michael Siglain and StarWars.com’s Kristin Baver. In addition to insights about these first High Republic stories, the stream promises new announcements and reveals concerning the setting's future.
Star Wars: The High Republic takes place centuries before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, during the height of the Jedi Order. It is a multi-platform publishing initiative with books and comics for all ages, introducing new heroes, new worlds to explore, and new threats to the Star Wars universe.
