Light of the Jedi

Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Graeme McMillan interviews writer Charles Soule regarding the upcoming Star Wars: The High Republic collection of novels, comics, and more. Specifically, the whole thing kicks off with Light of the Jedi, the first novel highlighting this era. Sadly, I really wish I cared about this whole endeavor. It just isn’t sticking with me. It’s certainly ambitious. Maybe that will change as it rolls out. Meanwhile, Soule said one important thing that did catch my eye.

One of the things I remember clearly was a moment early in the first day of the first in-person meeting when the curtain was pulled back on more or less everything Star Wars had in serious development at that point across their portfolio. That stuff was and remains top secret, and learning about all of it felt very much like, “OK, we’ve made it.” The fact that this was happening at Skywalker Ranch didn’t hurt, either. We needed all of that information so we could understand the guardrails around what was already in development, but it was still pretty incredible.

So curious about what exactly is in serious development…
