But amongst the greatness, one thing you might have missed that was closer to the end of the panel was the announcement that a new bi-monthly show is coming to the Star Wars YouTube channel. That’s right, starting January 27th, Star Wars is launching The High Republic Show which will be hosted by Krystina Arielle and air on their YouTube channel.
From Star Wars dot com…
StarWars.com will welcome the initiative with a brand-new bi-monthly show. The panel introduced host Krystina Arielle, who will be taking fans on a deep dive behind the scenes with creators, artists, and authors in the new series Star Wars The High Republic Show.
Krystina, a lifelong Star Wars fan, is a cosplayer and gamer who can be seen on Pirates of Leviathan and Critical Role. She also appeared on the panel in a pre-recorded segment and had this to say about this exciting new opportunity…
“If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably got a lot of questions about this exciting new era of Star Wars. And luckily for you, I’m going to be sitting down with the creative forces behind the High Republic to get those answers.
Each episode we’re going to take a deep dive into the mythology, characters, and stories we know you’re going to love from this exciting new series.
So, whether it’s the evolution of characters, minutiae of story, or how the High Republic will be brought to life on different platforms. Nothing will be left undiscovered by me and my rotating cast of panelists and celebrity guests.”
