Star Wars: The Excessive Republic: three Unbelievable Deep Dive Easter Eggs and references to the prevailing franchise
The following includes MILD SPOILERS for the first series of Star Wars: The High Republic books
Star Wars: The High Republic kicks off this week; We now have the first books in a long-standing endeavor that will explore a new era of Star Wars storytelling through a variety of different media forms, namely on page. A few hundred years before the Star Wars era we know and love, the whole idea behind The High Republic is to take the shackles off Star Wars and tell original stories with new characters, new places, and even a distinctly different (but not entirely different) Jedi Order. This doesn’t mean, however, that long-time Star Wars fans who are familiar with all the ins and outs of hyperspace can’t find some names and locations that seem familiar, and they might give fans a bit more insight into some less-explored parts of the galaxy far far far away.
