What We Learned About Project Luminous and the High Republic

So there was an “event” of sorts with a bunch of the authors involved in Project Luminous tonight and with very little fanfare. StarWars.com has shared some of the details regarding the High Republic and the new books. There is also a little video that pretty much sums up what it’s all about so take a look. But very quickly and to the point, the Jedi of this period are “like the knights of the round table” and the threat is coming from the borders of the republic with the main threat known as the Nihil (pronounced Nile) who are like space Vikings. What do the Jedi fear most? Losing the light! To see the video, some concept art, and a few new book covers be sure to click through!

Welcome to the High Republic!

As we wait for the first official news of Project Luminous tonight (supposedly), we got our first look at where we will be heading. Charles Soule, writer of many of the best modern Star Wars comics, will deliver his first full Star Wars novel The High Republic: Light of the Jedi. There are also some other as-of-yet untitled Project Luminous titles listed on the Random House site, but this cover has gotten me pretty excited. Hopefully, this announcement will give us some amazing new content to look forward to. As a fan of the comics and novels, I’m personally excited to read a Charles Soule novel about a completely new era in Star Wars history, but I am also anxious to see where this goes in film/tv. Are you looking forward to moving outside of the Skywalker Saga? Let us know!

Fun Picture Of The Day

I just came across the cover for this children’s book by author Jeffrey Brown! It was released in August 2019 and you can get it on Amazon (it has a 5 star rating!). Something about the cover makes me laugh… so I wanted to share it with you.

I wonder what the intended message is…. at least everyone seems to be happy! But is it fair that Poe seems to carry most of the weight?
