by Podcast Stardust

On the eve of the launch of The High Republic, Lucasfilm publishing held a livestream event with the creators of this new era of Star Wars storytelling.

The High Republic is finally here! After a year of teases, well distributed details, and unfortunate delays, fans can finally dive into the latest event from Lucasfilm publishing. On the eve of the launch of The High Republic, Lucasfilm held a livestream event featuring Charles Soule, Daniel Jose Older, Cavan Scott, Claudia Gray, and Justina Ireland. The authors of The High Republic discussed their stories, characters, and events, and shared some of their pitches and fun working together. On this episode, we go over some of the details of the news they shared.

On this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss:

  • Our favorite moments from The High Republic livestream event,
  • New books, comics, graphic novels, and manga announcements,
  • The new characters and their inspiration as revealed by the authors,
  • Our first impressions of the new The High Republic novels, and
  • A tie-in to The High Republic in Star Wars #10.
