Star Wars The High Republic

Brace yourselves, Star Wars The High Republic content is coming to show format. So what exactly is The High Republic?

The High Republic

With the live-action miniseries The Acolyte set to come out this summer, it fits into the High Republic. So let’s dive into what Obi-Wan Kenobi described “For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic.”

During The High Republic, the Jedi were at the peak of their power. It is around the end of the High Republic when things begin to shift and Darth Bane enters as well as The Acolyte to disrupt the peace in the galaxy.

Worth noting, that it is also around this time when Darth Plagueis is introduced and could be killed by Darth Sidious. But it would be Plagueis who would be mostly in charge during this timeframe.

There are some great opportunities for Disney+/ Lucasfilm to crack wide open and dive into a pretty cool area of Star Wars. It is a time to win fans back and The Acolyte could be the springboard to do just that.

Early reviews suggest the show is solid. Releasing June 5, 2024, will be the test. If done right as The Mandalorian and Bad Batch (for the most part) have been then fans will not only be happy, but interested. 

The show holds a lot of promise and hopefully delivers. With Lucas Games redoing The Knights Of The Old Republic, a popular video games the tie-ins could be very good and could lead into some good Star Wars content.

That is the hope Star Wars fans have.
