Podcast Stardust #67: The High Republic

by Podcast Stardust

After a year of speculation, Project Luminous has finally been revealed. In this fully armed and operational episode, we discuss the announcement of Star Wars: The High Republic.

Charles Soule, Claudia Gray, Justina, Ireland, Daniel José Older, and Cavan Scott revealed the content behind Project Luminous and their ambitious plans for a new era of Star Wars storytelling with The High Republic. We are excited and eager to discuss the potential of this new publishing initiative in the latest edition of Podcast Stardust.

On this episode, we discuss:

  • The setting of The High Republic,
  • How this is set apart from other Star Wars content,
  • What existing characters could show up in The High Republic,
  • The authors and their respective projects,
  • What has been revealed of “The Great Disaster,”
  • Some character information,
  • Our initial impressions of the concept art, and
  • What we think of the series villains, the Nihil.
