[The High Republic] [] StarWars.com: The Makers of The High Republic: Claudia Gray

StarWars.com[External site - opens in a new window/tab] has posted an article "Inside The High Republic: Meet the Makers: Claudia Gray on Into the Dark" where they interview the author of this upcoming YA novel:

What can you talk about regarding how the book has evolved since the announcement?
"It’s not like there was an idea of the book before there was the collaboration or before there was the universe. It grew very organically out of that, like what are the different stories we need to tell in this universe? With this being a new cast of characters, and all the different starter books, we get to introduce our own people, their own situations, but it’s all part of this one big puzzle. And so I got to have a little side quest; I think the young adult novel could kind of count as that. It’s separate from a lot of the things that are going on, but there are also some setups for a lot of things that you’re going to see later. Is that vague enough?"

[The High Republic] [] StarWars.com: Meet the ships and vehicles of The High Republic

StarWars.com[External site - opens in a new window/tab] has posted an article "Inside The High Republic: Meet the Ships and Vehicles" where they have a preview of the starships and vehicles that have been designed especially for this  new era in Star Wars storytelling:

The High Republic offered creators the rare opportunity to world build in the fashion of the Star Wars films. This meant looking at what already exists in Star Wars, and figuring out what would come before. "We all found a lot of inspiration in how the prequels opened up a more refined era of the galaxy, but by virtue of those films’ proximity to the originals, it had to start showing early signs of corruption. By moving further in time, away from that downfall, we’re able to see the Republic at its height in this storytelling," says Pablo Hidalgo of the Lucasfilm Story Group. "In the Core Worlds especially, that’s reflected in fashion and technology. A lot of the visual exploration in the High Republic is taking what we know, but idealizing it."

[The High Republic] [] StarWars.com: The Makers of The High Republic: Justina Ireland

StarWars.com[External site - opens in a new window/tab] has posted an article "Inside The High Republic: Meet the Makers: Justina Ireland on A Test of Courage" where they interview the author of this upcoming middle-grade book:

The High Republic is a brand-new era, and your middle-grade novel, A Test of Courage, will be one of the first introductions to it. What was it like writing that first novel and exploring and defining a whole new era of Star Wars?
"It was pretty amazing, honestly! Imagine getting a chance to create the characters you want to see and putting them in a galaxy full of space wizards and the like? One that you’ve spent your entire life dreaming about? Yeah, amazing is the perfect way to describe it but also falls so far from the actual depth of emotion involved. All I’m saying is that if there’s ever a Vernestra Rwoh Funko Pop!, I’ll be unbearable to live with."
