One of the next big pieces of content coming from a galaxy far, far away is Star Wars: The High Republic. It actually sounds really cool, but again, I must express my disappointment with the platform of choice being novels.
Why can’t it be a Disney+ series?
Not that I have anthing again books. They provided the basis for some of the best films and television shows of all-time. It’s just I’m being selfish because I don’t have the time to read. Star Wars: The High Republic is set 200 years before The Phantom Menace.
The story will feature several new, and from what I”ve read, interesting characters who happen to be members of the Jedi Order. However, a comic book titled Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, by Daniel José Older (not yet availalble) will bring a familiar face into the fold, a younger Jedi Master Yoda. Described by Older as, “A journeyman out in the galaxy.”
In the follwing concept art you can see the Jedi Master weating a new mission robe. Lucasfilm art director, Troy Alders explains below.
“This mission outfit, with just tonal markings on the robe, are inspired by the Jedi Temple architectural details. Many new fans may not even notice these very subtle additions.”
While the above image only has slight changes to what we’ve seen Yoda wear, the image below shows Yoda sporting some fancy new duds, more elegant attire, from a more civilized era which Alders called a, “Special time of the golden age of the Jedi.”
More from Alders:
“Dressing Yoda for this epic time period, and creating designs adorned with gold, using beautiful fabrics and details, is something that he and all of the Jedi very much deserve, and the end result, I think, is gorgeous, and really celebrates this exciting and visually rich, gilded era.”
A brief summary of what Yoda is doing during this time period:
“While he’s already a respected member of the Jedi Council at this point, we meet Yoda in IDW’s The High Republic Adventures series doing what he loves best: looking out for the young folks — in this case, a group of Padawans traveling around the galaxy to learn the ways of the Jedi with a hands-on approach. The Force study abroad program, basically.”
