The past month or so, I’ve highlighted a few things about the new Star Wars publishing initiative, The High Republic, coming in 2021. This will be the last post before the first book, Light of the Jedi, comes out next week on January 5th. I’ve preordered mine, and will probably get it around the 12th (hopefully, considering the lag time with deliveries these days). So the next Hight Republic post will be a review of this first book. Until then, here’s a recap of what will be coming out on this new era of Star Wars:
- Light of the Jedi, adult novel by Charles Soule: January 5th
- A Test of Courage, middle grade novel by Justina Ireland: January 5th
- The Great Jedi Rescue, children’s book (6-8), by Cavan Scott: January 5th
- Into the Dark, YA novel by Claudia Gray: February 2nd
- High Republic #1, Marvel comic series, by Cavan Scott: January 6th
- High Republic #2, Marvel comic series, by Cavan Scott: February 3rd
- The High Republic Adventures, IDW Publishing comic series, by Daniel Jose Older: February 24th
- The Rising Storm, by Cavan Scott July 6
- Livestream event on Monday, January 4 at 9 am (PT) on Starwars.com or Youtube. This livestream event will feature all five authors of the High Republic launch initiative: Charles Soule, Justine Ireland, Claudia Gray, Cavan Scott, and Daniel Jose Older. They’ll give insights into the characters and events, as well as new announcements and reveals of what’s to come.
I’m most looking forward to the adult novels, and Claudia Gray’s YA novel, but there’s something here for everyone.
What are you most looking forward to? Let me know in the comments and we’ll talk about it!
