PREVIEW - The High Republic, Light of the Jedi, and the state of Star Wars fandom
Feb 05, 2021

The High Republic is the new interconnected mega story from Lucasfilm Publishing set 200 years before The Phantom Menace. The first book, Light of the Jedi by Charles Soule shows us the Jedi Order as a proactive force for good in a Republic expanding into the Outer Rim.

I look ahead to what's next in this era, and sadly, look to the reactionary elements of the Star Wars fandom that became so toxic during this initiatives launch, it prompted a tweet from the official Star Wars account denouncing the racist abuse from fans. Further, I look to the conspiratorial stories Star Wars fans obsess over in the secret Shadow War happening at Lucasfilm between the forces of evil feminism and cool guy stuff.
