As vast as this era in A Galaxy Far, Far Away feels already, Lucasfilm’s ambitious multi-platform publishing initiative Star Wars: The High Republic is still only partway through its first phase. And today during the [email protected] panel presentation featuring the five authors involved in the ongoing project, we found out some new information about what we can expect next in the sequence, with several new novels and comics due out at the beginning of 2022.

Arriving in January are three additional Star Wars: The High Republic novels (one each in the adult, young adult, and middle grade categories) and one comic book miniseries from talented writers Claudia Gray, Daniel José Older, Justina Ireland, and Charles Soule.

What’s happening:

  • Lucasfilm Publishing has announced the third wave of Star Wars: The High Republic novels and comic books, which are set to be released in January of 2022.
  • Claudia Gray (Star Wars: Lost Stars, Star Wars: Bloodline, Star Wars: The High Republic – Into the Dark) is writing the next adult novel in the series, entitled Star Wars: The High Republic – The Fallen Star.
  • Daniel José Older (Star Wars: Last Shot, Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures, Star Wars: The High Republic – Race to Crashpoint Tower) is writing the next young-adult novel in the series, entitled Star Wars: The High Republic – Midnight Horizon.
  • Justina Ireland (Star Wars: Spark of the Resistance, Star Wars: The High Republic – A Test of Courage, Star Wars: The High Republic – Out of the Shadows) is writing the next middle-grade novel in the series, entitled Star Wars: The High Republic – Mission to Disaster.
  • Charles Soule (Star Wars: Darth Vader – Dark Lord of the Sith, Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren, Star Wars: The High Republic – Light of the Jedi) is writing a two-part comic book miniseries entitled Star Wars: The High Republic – Eye of the Storm, focused on villainous Nihil leader Marchion Ro.
