AN UNEXPLORED ERA: The High Republic is the first time Star Wars has visited a new time period since the franchise’s acquisition by Disney. Ever since the beloved Old Republic series of games, fans have been clamoring for a return to Star Wars’ distant past. The High Republic is the culmination of years of demand.
2020 IS THE YEAR OF THE HIGH REPUBLIC: With the launch of Light of the Jedi, Star Wars books embark on an exciting multi-year publishing plan across Random House, Disney Publishing, IDW, and Marvel. The High Republic publishing program is the first step in an initiative that will grow to encompass multiple mediums including comics and video games.
CINEMATIC SCOPE: For the next few years, Lucasfilm is shifting its onscreen priorities for the Star Wars brand from films to smaller-scale streaming shows, focused on more personal stories about individual characters. Light of the Jedi is primed to deliver the galactic-level scale and space opera action fans will be looking for as they wait for the next tentpole film.
EPIC ANNOUNCEMENT: The announcement for the High Republic was a major event, receiving widespread media coverage. The trailer for the High Republic program has been viewed over 2 million times as of February, and reached #13 on YouTube’s trending videos.
