Introducing The Jedi Of Star Wars: The High Republic


Set 200 years before the Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The High Republic is a publishing event set to launch in Fall 2020. Here's a look at some of the Jedi of this era

"...The Jedi Knights of the High Republic are both aspirational and inspirational. In short, they’re the good guys...

...They are all different, approaching the Force in individual and unique ways and yet are united with a common goal. They serve not out of unwavering dogma, but a deep passion to protect light and life. And they’re all at different stages in their individual journeys. Some have experience on their side, some have the exuberance of youth. Some are still finding their place in the Order while others step naturally into leadership roles. Some may not have chosen to work with the Jedi they’ve been posted alongside, but all are dedicated to be a guiding light for the galaxy. Individually they are strong, together they are invincible, but like the best heroes they each have lessons to learn and challenges to overcome. Exciting times lie ahead.”

Head over to StarWars.com to find out more about the Jedi pictured in the GALLERY below.

Hmm, I thought it was marvel that published every star wars-related comic book now. To be honest I haven't been interested in any of the comic book series from this new Expanded Universe, this one sounds interesting although I was never very interested in the period of time before the Clone Wars.

Interesting that they went with IDW and not Marvel. I have been interested in this project since they first announced it. I have always liked the pre movies time period because of the freedom it offers the writers to come up with ideas.

Launching in January 2021, Star Wars: The High Republic will be explored through multiple voices and span adult and young adult novels, children’s books, and comics from a variety of publishers. StarWars.com takes a look at some of the starring villains.

The Drengir - "Sentient plant-life who are looking to reap a terrible harvest across the galactic frontier,... They are sinister, unstoppable and, as we’ll find out, inescapably linked to the fate of one of our High Republic Jedi…”

The Nihil - "..,Brutal, savage marauders, based in the Outer Rim,...The Nihil are organized into three main divisions called Tempests, each with its own captain who wields total control”


"Marchion Ro holds an important post within the greater Nihil organization — he is the Eye of the Nihil, as was his father before him. He doesn’t give the orders — that’s up to the Tempest Runners — but in a very real way, everything revolves around him”

Those ships don't look so Star Wars 'ish to me and those nihil guys look more like taken from some Steampunk or Post apocalyptic fan art, but I certainly find it an interesting project even though I never noticed any event prior to Episode I in the previous canon and at the moment other projects place the action more in the imperial or post-imperial period.
