Star Wars: the High Republic

Star Wars: The High Republic, initially promoted as Project Luminous, is a subseries of the Star Wars media franchise set during the "High Republic" sub-era of the Age of Republic, set 200 years before the events of the Skywalker saga and 800 years after the fall of the "Old Republic". In-universe, the initiating event of the subfranchise is "The Great Disaster" involving the antagonistic "space Vikings" known as the Nihil and the subsequent intervention of the Jedi at the height of their power.

History

"Project Luminous" was started in September 2018 with invitations to Star Wars authors including Claudia Gray, Justina Ireland, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott and Charles Soule to Skywalker Ranch, with Lucasfilm offering them a "blank slate" in determining the project.[1] Lucasfilm had teased "Project Luminous" in April 2019, which prompted intense fan speculation.[2]

On February 24, 2020, Lucasfilm announced a new series of comics and novels called Star Wars: The High Republic, intended to be a publisher-only multimedia project, unrelated to any films in development. A trailer was released showing events taking place two centuries before the events of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace. It shows the Jedi at the height of their power and rise of the Nihil.[3][4]

The series was originally intended to debut with Light of the Jedi in August 2020, a few days before Star Wars Celebration 2020, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic to January 2021.[5] The first chapter of the novel was released in June 2020 through IGN.[6]
