Several fan-favorite High Republic characters are making their way to the small screen thanks to Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures.
Master Loden Greatstorm and padawan Bell Zettifar, their companion Ember, and Estala Maru will all appear in High Republic crossover episodes of the series, according to IGN.
The year of 2023 has brought The High Republic into various mediums outside of books and comics, both with the premiere of Young Jedi Adventures in May and in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, which released in April.
According to the site’s interview, there will be plenty of Easter eggs for High Republic fans to spot as a “reward” for having read the books, comics, and other stories. But as always, fans can and will enjoy these episodes even if they’ve yet to dive into the High Republic era there.
The two episodes to cross over with these familiar characters will be “Charhound Chase” and “Stuck in the Muck.” These episodes are still part of the first season of the show, to air new episodes next month.
The High Republic first began in January 2021 with Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi, and has since released over a dozen books, multiple comics series and miniseries, and other stories. It was always the plan for The High Republic to expand beyond publishing. The biggest jump will be the release of the live-action Disney+ series The Acolyte, which will take place toward the end of the Star Wars era.
It has always been important for High Republic stories to cater to all ages across its various mediums, and Young Jedi Adventures is the perfect way to introduce very young fans to the characters they may grow up to love.
New episodes of Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures arrive November 8 on Disney Junior and Disney+.
