    It’s been in the works since 2018.
    The idea of Project Luminous came from Lucasfilm Publishing's creative director, Michael Siglain, who individually approached each author in the summer of 2018 about getting to work on what he then called the All-Star Initiative. To Cavan Scott, Siglain revealed the project over breakfast, while both were at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, but he didn't say who else would be working on Luminous yet.[7]

    Thats the thing people forget. Yeah they're poorly written and acted. However. They're both memorable AND just campy enough to be enjoyable.

    Whereas the no ones cant even get that right. They poor acting and writing is just awkward and no one stands out.

    It's the wonder that drew me to star wars, so when 1-3 had lots of it, but 7-9 dialled way down on it, ofc iw as disappointed.

    The High Republic is a silly name. The Republic would have been better, but neither quite there

    What movie? The High Republic is starting off with books and comics. No movie or series planned yet.

    Now that I'm reading more comments, a lot of people are jumping the gun on what's to appear on the big screen.

    Its an era where the Jedi and Republic were dominant. Probably going to full of a bunch of Jedi romanticism with hints of Sith scheming since they are underground at this point. Its going to add some depth to the Jedi that isn't the broken fraction we see in the PT or the dead faction we see afterwards.

    Its only print stuff as of now. So books and comics.
    You do KNOW that TOR is way WAY before this High republic thign right?

    Because SW:TOR is playing after the Kotor are, a few years after.

    Now tell me Jar Jar poopo joke is bad and whiny Anakin is bad. Its nothing in comparison to atrocities ST was full of.

    That is your opinion, in my opinion the prequels are masterpieces compared to the trash Disney Trilogy and many share a similar opinion or flat out think all 6 movies are bad.

    Don't go and pretend everyone hates the prequels more than the disney trilogy just because you do.

    Well it was designed to make Rey stand out...all of the characters basically written to look stupid so Kathleen Kennedy's fan fiction self can stand out and above everyone else.
    Hope, the greatest power of all!

    I hate the the Disney trilogy much more than the prequels and I think 1 and 2 are trash. Revenge of the Sith is the only film I genuinly enjoyed of the six but at least Lucas was trying to make star wars movies.

    Well lets be honest...a lot of the books/comics from them has just been to connect to movies...to fill in gaps. Likely that they're being a little smarter this time, they've been launching movies then releasing books/comics that are needed to fill in gaps and people don't really care because they've already seen the movies. So instead this time launching the books before the movies so people can go in knowing everything.
    Hope, the greatest power of all!

    Agreed, SW has so many cool characters and stories- why just disregard all that and just go with (what seems like) random stories?

    Truthfully- they way things have been received so far- they need a big win with the SW fans. A killer Revan movie would be a slam dunk.

    I think they should give Star Wars a break for a little while, going to the well once too often.

    I guess im the only 1 that dont think that. The prequels were great and only a few things were really off for me. They are my fav star wars movies, especially episode 1 and 3. 2 was alright, but wasn't the best. I did like 2 more than any of the new movies tho. Not a popular thing to say but alas.. fact for me.

    Why paint themselves in a corner and restrict themselves to what could only be categorized as elaborate fan fiction? Hell even Lucas didn't consider the bulk of the EU cannon.

    If they can pull the best part of the EU and provide proper context consider this Disney Star Wars fan pleased. Just like I have been with the Mandalorian and the Star Wars books that give more detail the films.
    The worst part about the internet is that it let the truly crazy, racist, and bigots find each other easily.

    Lucasfilm has completely lost the plot.

    Someone else quoted me with a similar comment. I wasn't clear, my fault.

    Im used to using BBY/ABY as a reference, So if you were to use the destruction of the DS as you're origin then you would get to High Republic before Old Republic. I'm fully aware that HR is 200 years before the PT and the Old Republic is 'thousands' of years.

    200 years prior to Phantom Menance, height of the Republic

    We'll get to see Jedi actually be knights in shining armor

    Sounds really cool!

    Remember how wise and mysterious Yoda was? Turns out him and his buddies were morons who basically walked face-first into extinction, but here's some crappy CGI flipping to rob him of his dignity.
    Y'know that tender scene where Leia says she remembers her mother a little? Turns out that can only be her dying seconds after giving birth from a broken heart.
    "You can't beat me, I have the high ground," said Obi-wan who famously killed Darth Maul while the Sith had the high ground.
    At some point R2-D2 forgot how to fly.
    In fact R2-D2 and C-3PO were forced to forget everything because fuck the rights of possibly sentient beings (Optimus Prime would not approve.)
    That's okay because Obi-wan also forgot about the droids, possibly a symptom of the early-onset senility that made him think it was a good idea to put Luke with Anakin's only surviving family using Anakin's surname.
    As i said with all it's FLAWS is still way better than the new trilogy.

    Maybe, but it's still kinda saying a turd is better than a shit sandwich. Technically true, but doesn't actually matter too much. Both are bad.

    Personally, I think The Mandalorian and Rogue One are better than any Star Wars movie except mayyyybe Empire. So what if Disney mucked up their trilogy, they still got at least some people who can write the universe loads better than Lucas ever could. I'll see how this High Republic affair transpires.
