-“Mystery of the Opal Cave/Clash” November 10

According to StarWars.com, the “Life Day” episode will feature Masters Yoda and Zia Zanna taking the Jedi Younglings to Kashyyyk to learn about the Wookiee holiday of Life Day. As they celebrate the event first seen in the Star Wars Holiday Special, the Jedi will celebrate with their Wookiee friends and learn about their traditions. It has also been revealed in an exclusive reveal from IGN that the crew will be visiting Starlight Beacon and that High Republic writer Cavan Scott is a writer on the series.
Cavan Scott shared in the IGN article why it was natural to bring Bell Zettifar into the story to act as a mentor to Youngling Kai Brightstar, saying:
"“When I first read about the characters of Young Jedi Adventures – when I first read about Kai – I just saw Kai and Bell together. It just seemed a natural mix. You’ve got a young man who is so excited about his future in the Jedi order, who’s excited to become a Padawan, who then hears that this legendary master is going to be coming to their planet and bringing in his Padawan. And so there was a real chance to do a story about hero worship and anticipation and excitement about the future.We find out that Master Zia and Loden are friends of old, and he’s coming to examine the new Jedi outposts. And right from the start, Kai finds out, and he’s beside himself with excitement that Master Loden’s coming here. And he’s desperate to make a good impression, especially on Bell, because again, he sees himself as a future Bell. That’s how he wants to be. He wants to be a Padawan. He wants to go zooming around the galaxy with a master. That’s his entire life dream.”"
