Star Wars: The High Republic is set 200 years before Phantom Menace


Star Wars: The High Republic is Disney's new Star Wars saga set 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, LucasFilm has confirmed.

This period on the Star Wars timeline will not overlap any of the filmed features or series currently planned for production, giving creators and partners a vast amount of room to tell Star Wars stories with new adventures and original characters.
Star Wars: The High Republic features the Jedi as we’ve always wanted to see them — as true guardians of peace and justice. This is a hopeful, optimistic time, when the Jedi and the Galactic Republic are at their height. But of course, into this glorious new era something wicked this way comes. This initiative will give readers young and old a new corner of the galaxy to explore through rich, meaningful stories. Plus, readers will learn what scares the Jedi.
Michael Siglain, Lucasfilm publishing creative director

The saga will debut at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, California in August alongside the following:
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: Into the Dark by Claudia Gray (Young Adult novel, Disney Lucasfilm Press)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland (Middle Grade novel, Disney Lucasfilm Press)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures by Daniel José Older (IDW Publishing comic book series)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic by Cavan Scott (Marvel comic book series)
  • Star Wars: The High Republic: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule (Adult novel)

Interesting. I have been fascinated with lasers. So, is it possible to make a light saber in real life? I get that it could be a glowing hot metal rod. That would be too hot to hold in your hands, maybe. Lasers always go from point A to point B. What? The light saber just extends to a meter length, or something.

This probably breaks laws of physics, like moving faster than speed of light or person being located in 2 different cities (at the same time).
Interesting starting place, does give them a lot of freedom to do whatever they want without messing with the current storyline. Hopefully the game turns out great.
