hen we were first introduced to The High Republic era - way back when it was still called Project Luminous - we had no idea what the creators behind the initiative truly had in store for us.
This wasn’t just a new era in the galaxy far, far away. This was the beginning of a new era of Star Wars storytelling. We knew that, at least. We knew we were getting a handful of Star Wars books. Some comics. We knew this was going to be huge.
We didn’t know just how monumental it would become.
It began with books and comics. Then came the manga reveal. Now, with the latest episode of The HIgh Republic Show, another project has emerged: an original audiobook by High Republic superstar Cavan Scott.
The audio drama will follow Nihil leader Lourna Dee as she faces potential enemies from all directions -- even within her own ranks.
Star Wars audio dramas thus far have focused on villains and morally ambiguous chaos agents alike. Dooku: Jedi Lost tells the story behind the events that led to Dooku leaving the Jedi Order, and Doctor Aphra showcases Aphra’s tendency to do the right things for the wrong reasons.
We don’t know much about Lourna yet. But that’s about to change.
The High Republic is here to stay. And it’s only going to keep growing and expanding - which is exactly what we want, and so much more.
This new story is set to release this fall. Check back soon for more book details and pre-order links.
