A New Era Begins with 'Star Wars: The High Republic'

Coming later this year, a new Star Wars comic series joins the just-announced publishing program!

Prepare, True Believers and Star Wars stalwarts, to take your first step into a larger world.

Disney Publishing Worldwide has announced the launch of an all new publishing-led Star Wars storytelling initiative, Star Wars: The High Republic, previously called “Project Luminous.” Featuring interconnected stories told across multiple publishers, this epic saga will take place 200 years prior to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in an all-new time period.

Star Wars: The High Republic is set in an era when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their height, serving and protecting the galaxy. This is a hopeful, optimistic time, when the Republic and the Jedi are noble and respected. This multi-year publishing program will be rolled out in phases, with Phase I being called “Light of the Jedi.” This period on the Star Wars timeline will not overlap any of the films or series currently planned for production, giving creators and partners space to tell Star Wars stories in a never-before-explored timeline.

STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC, written by Cavan Scott, will be Marvel Comics' first entry to the new era. The catalyst for all these interconnected stories is that the galaxy is recovering from something known as "The Great Disaster." While details are still under wraps, it's an event that brings the Jedi together to try and help with recovery efforts.

The comic book is set on a new space station called Starlight Station, which plays a large role throughout all additional comics and books. 

STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC

The first books and comics are set to debut at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in August 2020, and select titles are available now for pre-order.
