STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC video teaser trailer – is this Lucasfilm’s next generation?

With STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER effectively ending the Skywalker Saga last December in theaters, many have wondered what’s next for Lucasfilm and STAR WARS as a franchise. Now we may have some idea of what to expect, thanks to the reveal of STAR WARS: THE HIGH REPUBLIC, developed by a writer’s group at Skywalker Ranch who have been working together since Summer 2018. This think tank is assisted by long-time Lucasfilm archivist Pablo Hidalgo, and legendary STAR WARS character designers Doug Chiang and Iain McCaig, helping to create a diverse and imaginative new universe for the future of the Lucasfilm legacy… this will be seen in books, various publishing and possibly more, perhaps even setting the stage for an upcoming feature film series. Some fans speculated the video game universe of THE OLD REPUBLIC would serve as a template for the next STAR WARS movie, and with THE HIGH REPUBLIC taking shape, it’s easy to see how that could very well be true. Check out the official announcement video below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Set 200 years prior to the events of Star Wars: the Phantom Menace, the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their height, serving and protecting the galaxy.

Featuring brand-new stories from five authors set in an all-new era, this is Star Wars: The High Republic.

“This period on the Star Wars timeline will not overlap any of the filmed features or series currently planned for production, giving creators and partners a vast amount of room to tell Star Wars stories with new adventures and original characters.”
