Today Star Wars officially released the new High Republic announcement trailer on their Youtube channel. Star Wars: The High Republic has also been referred to as ‘Project Luminous’ and will take place about 200 years before the events of The Phantom Menace. This is an opportunity for Lucasfilm and Disney to tell new Star Wars stories without any sort of overlap on the films or series. High Republic will allow them to explore the world of Star Wars from different perspectives- introducing new characters and adventures.
The first books and comics are set to debut at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in August 2020 with Star Wars: The High Republic: Light of the Jedi.
