This week the first installments of The High Republic, the new stage of the publications of Star Wars.
As previously anticipated, books and comics framed in The High Republic They will explore a period of galactic history set several centuries before the events of the prequels and will therefore address a period before the “Skywalker Saga”.
But, as the location of these new stories relative to the rest of the installments of the franchise could be confusing for some people, Lucasfilm decided to reveal a updated version of the timeline of Star Wars to include The High Republic.
Within the framework of a live broadcast where several publications were presented that will be part of the proposal of The High Republic, Lucasfilm revealed a timeline that places this time at the beginning of everything and divides the history of the galaxy far, far away into six periods: “The High Republic” (“The High Republic”), “Fall of The Jedi“(“Fall of the Jedi”), “Reign of The Empire” (“Reign of the Empire”), “Age of Rebellion” (Era of rebellion), “The New Republic” (“The new republic”) and “Rise of the First Order” (Rise of the First Order).
Naturally the prequels are in the time of “Fall of the Jedi”, while the original trilogy is in the “Age of rebellion” and the new trilogy is in the “Rise of the First Order”.
Unfortunately this timeline does not include years or more specific details regarding the setting of comics and novels contemplated in the new canon. In fact, the scheme also does not include all the new series that have been announced for Disney Plus as The Acolyte, Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Book of Boba Fett despite the fact that the settings of those deliveries had already been anticipated previously.
But of course, even so this serves to have an overview of the order of the current canon of the space franchise.
According to the above, Lucasfilm plans to extend the publications of The High Republic for several years and the idea of the company’s publications division is that these stories in turn are divided into different phases.
