The High Republic Free Digital Sampler is a sampler that contains excerpts from media in the Star Wars: The High Republic publishing initiative. It was released as a digital eBook on December 12, 2020.
Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
Read the first chapters of the Star Wars: The High Republic launch titles: Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule, Into the Dark by Claudia Gray, A Test of Courage by Justina Ireland, as well as excerpts from the first comic book issues from Marvel and IDW.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- The excerpt of Light of the Jedi names the Legacy Run's owner as the Byrne Guild. However, the excerpt of Into the Dark names the same organization as the "Byne" Guild, and its leader as Scover Byne. Ultimately, the final release of Light of the Jedi confirmed the "Byne" spelling as the correct one.
- The excerpt of The High Republic 1 states that the Starlight Beacon is located in a region called the Starless Expanse. This was removed from the final published comic.
- The excerpt of The High Republic Adventures 1 refers to the Trymant system as the "Trymantian" system, and has Taris as one of the worlds highlighted on an included galaxy map. The final comic only uses "Trymant system", and the map has other worlds marked instead, including Yavin.
