The High Republic: Light of the Jedi is an upcoming canon novel written by Charles Soule. It will be the first volume in the Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign, and it will be published on January 5, 2021 by Del Rey.

The events of the novel are set two centuries before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, and the story follows Jedi Avar Kriss as the Jedi Order faces a new threat.

Publisher's summaryEdit

Long before the First Order, before the Empire, before even The Phantom Menace. . . Jedi lit the way for the galaxy in The High Republic

It is a golden age. Intrepid hyperspace scouts expand the reach of the Repubic to the furthest stars, worlds flourish under the benevolent leadership of the Senate, and peace reigns, enforced by the wisdom and strength of the renowned order of Force users known as the Jedi. With the Jedi at the height of their power, the free citizens of the galaxy are confident in their ability to weather any storm. But even the brightest light can cast a shadow, and some storms defy any preparation.

When a shocking catastrophe in hyperspace tears a ship to pieces, the flurry of shrapnel emerging from the disaster threatens an entire system. No sooner does the call for help go out than the Jedi race to the scene. The scope of the emergence, however, is enough to push even Jedi to their limit. As the sky breaks open and destruction rains down upon the peaceful alliance they helped to build, the Jedi must trust in the Force to see them through a day in which a single mistake could cost billions of lives.

Even as the Jedi battle valiantly against calamity, something truly deadly grows beyond the boundary of the Republic. The hyperspace disaster is far more sinister than the Jedi could ever suspect. A threat hides in the darkness, far from the light of the age, and harbors a secret that could strike fear into even a Jedi's heart.

DevelopmentEdit

Star Wars: The High Republic was originally scheduled to launch with The High Republic: Light of the Jedi on August 25, 2020,[3] but the release date was revised to January 5, 2021 due to general marketplace delays.[4]

ContinuityEdit

The character Avar Kriss, who will appear in The High Republic: Light of the Jedi, first appeared in the third issue of Charles Soule's comic book miniseries Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren.[5]

SWYTlogo Star Wars: The High Republic | Announcement Trailer on the official Star Wars YouTube channel states that the events of Star Wars: The High Republic, which include the events of The High Republic: Light of the Jedi, take place two-hundred years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to 32 BBY, it can be deduced that the events of The High Republic: Light of the Jedi take place around 232 BBY.
