You may have heard of the High Republic from the currently streaming Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures and the upcoming Star Wars: The Acolyte, but what is the High Republic era of Star Wars and how do you jump in to its many expansive storylines?
The High Republic era of Star Wars takes place over 100 years prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. It follows the Jedi order at their peak. These stories introduce brand new planets, Jedi, and villains never before seen in the Star Wars Universe.
It’s split up into Phases. There are currently 2 Phases with Phase 3 starting later this year with Star War The High Republic: Tales of Light and Life releasing on September 5,2023.
Each Phase consists of Graphic Novels, Adult Novels, YA Novels, Junior Novels, and even Children’s books. Each of these categories can be read on their own, or in conjunction with others to get a bigger picture of what’s going on the universe.
Below is a breakdown of each Phase, listing the books in order in each category. For a fully chronological reading guide check out starwars.com’s Star Wars: The High Republic Chronological Reader’s Guide
Please Note: Much like the Star Wars movies, the Phases are not numbered in chronological order. Phase 2 occurs first in the timeline, with Phases 1 and 3 happening afterwards. And much like the Star Wars movies you can read these in release order or chronological order and be totally fine.
