A new animated series set during The High Republic era has been announced during Star Wars Celebration, confirming our previous reports.
The High Republic is expanding! On top of all the awesome book announcements yesterday, today brings news of an upcoming animated series, Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures. This confirms our exclusive story from over a year ago about an upcoming animated series, even confirming my personal scoop about it coming from ICON Studios.
The show is launching in 2023 and will be geared towards younger audiences (it’s also launching on Disney Junior so that should give you an idea), but the creators stress it’s something fans of all ages can enjoy:
The first full-length animated Star Wars series created for preschoolers, early grade schoolers, and their families, these original stories will follow Younglings as they are swept off into adventures, and start their journeys on the path to becoming Jedi Knights, learning valuable skills for our galaxy and the galaxy far, far away. The Jedi-in-training will tackle topics of compassion, self-discipline, teamwork, patience, and friendship.
The new series will be part of the era known as the High Republic, set centuries before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and currently being explored in the New York Times bestselling series of books and comics for all ages, Star Wars: The High Republic.
Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures is coming to Disney+ and Disney Junior in Spring 2023.
