Although with this idea of "superheroes" it sounds more like there will be a team of force users as the main cast with each varying abilities, rather than two main force sensitives as a dyad. But who knows.
Ya. Curious to see how it plays outthumb up

Quick update...

Apparently the details surrounding this event will be officially revealed on 2/24, during some sort of big SW event/Q&A panel.

It is also unlikely that we'll be seeing any games/TV shows/movies tied-into this event, as it is now being described as a joint publishing effort -- so the story will probably just interconnect through various novels and comics.

I could wait, honestly. After choking on their vanity with the Sequel Trilogy, they should've learn to slow down, and it seems they have.

I really wish I was more excited for new releases. There's the new Vader comic in terms of what's coming recently, and then the new trilogy and Kenobi series on Disney +, though that's pro'lly 2 whole years away.

It's just that Disney's not releasing anything different from what we've seen before. If they did, that would blow my mind just like the old Legends installments did, and then I'd start getting excited. I'm just gonna hope this "Luminous" thing is what I've been looking for. Until then, Star Wars in moderation is the best Star Wars.

A few possible connections involving the cover...


First off, I'm wondering if the female Jedi:

Is the same character depicted in the Holocron that one of Luke's students was studying in The Rise of Kylo Ren #3?:

Mind you, that appears to be the same Holocron that Luke found at the ancient Jedi outpost in issue #2:

And Lor San Tekka confirmed that the outpost was created during the High Republic era:

I also have to wonder if the structure featured in the background:

Is the "Starlight" that Grek referenced in Star Wars #2:

*Mind you, ALL of the above material is written by Soule as well.

A few notes from the Q&A panel...

-The Jedi of the High Republic are essentially "Jedi Knights of the Round Table". Definitely some strong Arthurian vibes.
-The main villains are called the Nihil, and are described as "space Vikings".
-The High Republic is set 200 years before the prequels, in the "Golden Age" of the Jedi/Republic. "The Jedi as we've always wanted to see them."
-The story begins with some sort of disaster/calamity that pushes the Jedi into action.
-The event will take place across several different novels and comic series', and under several different publishers.

I'm not exactly sure how to feel about a Knights of the Round Table thing for Star Wars. ...But ok I guess that's happening, at least it's something new anyway than bringing back old characters, which is what they should focus on doing moreso.

Anyway, it sounds interesting to be sure. ....Then there's the ST.

....I really can't believe this is what's what now, it's very strange.

Also that holocron is probably the Jedi yeah, if it's all written by the same guy and looking familiar.

Star Wars: The High Republic, which has previously been referred to as "Project Luminous", will be set in an era when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their zenith, about 200 years before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. This period on the Star Wars timeline will not overlap any of the filmed features or series currently planned for production, giving creators and partners a vast amount of room to tell Star Wars stories with new adventures and original characters.

"We are so excited to be opening up such a rich, fertile era for our authors to explore," says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. "We'll get to see the Jedi in their prime."

"Star Wars: The High Republic features the Jedi as we've always wanted to see them -- as true guardians of peace and justice. This is a hopeful, optimistic time, when the Jedi and the Galactic Republic are at their height. But of course, into this glorious new era something wicked this way comes," says Lucasfilm publishing creative director Michael Siglain. "This initiative will give readers young and old a new corner of the galaxy to explore through rich, meaningful stories. Plus, readers will learn what scares the Jedi."

"This was a golden age for the Jedi, and also a time of galactic expansion in the Outer Rim. So expect there to be rich tales of exploration; charting out the galaxy, meeting new cultures, and discovering what pioneer life in the Outer Rim was like. This is an incredible sandbox for our storytellers to play in, both within publishing and beyond, and we can't wait to see the great fiction they build within it," says Lucasfilm vice president, franchise content and strategy James Waugh.

So just 200 years before TPM? Where the Republic and Jedi were at their height hm? Well let's just hope it's not all screwed up in the end. Color me curious.

Though now I'm wondering if only 200 years ago before TPM, they were at their height...then what about even before that? Cause the Republic has stood for a millennia according to TPM. Unless they are gonna be changing that too, but wouldn't be the first time I guess.

I like everything that I've heard about this. I like the idea of Arthurian knights. I like that it's set only 200 years before the PT instead of thousands of years before it.

I never liked how most of the Old Republic stories took place 1000s of years before the prequels. What's the point in setting everything that far back when all the technology is all the same.

Well when you reach a certain level of technology, it’s more the internal workings then outward appearance that’s going to change.
Not all technology is going to be the same apart from maybe appearance wise.

You say that, but the technology jumps absolutely massively between TPM and the end of RoS.
