It was recently announced that an upcoming publishing project set in Lucasfilm’s Star Wars franchise – titled Star Wars: The High Republic would be coming in the near future. Referred to as Project Luminous, it takes place in the canonical new era called The High Republic, a setting that takes place 200 years before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and is going to be a series of novels, children’s books and also comic books.
The first release date for the first wave books and comics is expected to be launched later this fall.
In February, we’ve seen a few pieces of concept art for the project and now we’re going to know a bit more about the Jedi from this new epic multi-platform project thanks to Lucasfilm dropping new character details and character artwork.
JEDI CHARACTER DETAILS
AVAR KRISS: Avar is the brightest, most noble example of Jedi-hood. She always tries to see the good in people and situations, and never puts herself first. She is invigorated about life on the frontier and the challenges it brings and is an inspiration for those who work with her. She is compassionate, not dogmatic, and always ready to sacrifice herself over others. Avar Kriss is the best of the best.
LODEN GREATSTORM: Loden is a Twi’lek Jedi Master, and is considered to be one of the best teachers in the Jedi Order. Strong and wise, with a good sense of humor, Loden looks at every moment as a learning experience, always trying to better himself and those around him, especially his Padawans.
KEEVE TRENNIS: Keeve is a young firebrand Jedi, believed to have a great future ahead of her if only she would believe it herself. Quick-witted and more impulsive than she should be, Keeve has only been a Jedi Knight for a few weeks and is a little starstruck around Avar, knowing many of the great things Kriss has done in the past. She is determined to prove herself to Avar and the other legendary Jedi stationed on Starlight Beacon, but first, she must learn to trust in herself as much as she trusts the Force.
STELLAN GLOS: Stellan is an optimistic and well-respected Jedi Master. Stellan came up through the Order with Avar Kriss, and although they are often on different assignments for the Jedi or the Republic, when the two work together they are a powerhouse team of two noble heroes in action. Strong in the Force and a natural teacher, Stellan is currently stationed at one of the Jedi Temple outposts on the distant planet of Caragon-Viner.
VERNESTRA “VERN” RWOH: Vern is a newly-minted Jedi Knight. Vernestra, Mirialan, was Padawan to Stellan Gios. She works hard and is devoted to the Jedi Order, more so than most others her age. At sixteen she is one of the youngest Knights in a generation. She struggles to fit in with the adults while also setting a good example for the younger Jedi.
We’re excited to see where The High Republic goes from here and if it’ll have a bigger place in the Star Wars franchise beyond publishing. Stay tuned to HN Entertainment as we continue to explore further details about Star Wars: The High Republic.
