New Rumor? Star Wars: The High Republic Animated Series to Be in Development

Disney+ has become home to “The Clone Wars” as well as the new spin-off series called “The Bad Batch”, but WhatsOnDisneyPlus just recently reported that a new series featuring the High Republic might be in the works as well for Disney+.


Earlier this year, LucasFilm announced a brand new publishing campaign called “Star Wars: The High Republic”, which will be set in an era when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their zenith, about 200 years before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. 

As part of this new campaign, there are multiple projects, including adult and young adult novels, children’s books, and comics.    Over the past few months, LucasFilm has been giving more details on this new era of Star Wars, introducing new characters, locations and much more.   There are some connections to the Star Wars era we are used to, as they will be introducing a much younger Yoda (well he’ll still be around 700 years old in the new era).

There are also apparently whispers of a live-action series set in “The High Republic”, which would make sense because the amount of work going into building up this period of the Star Wars timeline, has to result in more than just books, as they’ve already announced a Virtual Reality game based on the characters.

In January 2021, the first books from “The High Republic” are due to hit shelves, since there was a slight delay due to Covid.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
