Podcast Stardust #176: Villains of The High Republic and More Thrawn

by Podcast Stardust

The High Republic is right around the corner, and this week we meet the villains. Plus, more Thrawn is on the way next May.

The hype for The High Republic keeps building as more and more details about the upcoming publishing initiative are released. On this week’s edition of the news, we discuss the villains of The High Republic that were introduced on StarWars.com. After that, we discuss the upcoming celebration of 30 years of Thrawn and then get into an unusual honor for The Mandalorian and HasLab Razor Crest updates.

On this fully armed and operational episode we discuss:

  • The introduction of the Drengir,
  • The enemy of the Jedi of The High Republic: the Nihil,
  • Marchion Ro’s role among the Nihil,
  • The announcement of Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good,
  • A Mandalorian print hung in the National Portrait Gallery, and
  • Updates on the HasLab Razor Crest stretch goals.
