One such tale involves a 15-minute story from the time period of Star Wars: The High Republic. The upcoming novel series set 200 years before The Phantom Menace. A trailer for Temple of Darkness can be found below.
Vice President of Franchise Content & Strategy for Lucasfilm, James Waugh had the following to say in a statement.
“Temple of Darkness in Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge will give Star Wars fans an opportunity to step into a story set during The High Republic era on an incredibly transportive platform. It will be one of the first tales released taking place in this bold, adventurous new era for Star Wars storytelling which we intend to see traverse multiple mediums over many years. We’re so proud of what so many incredibly talented authors, developers, licensing partners, and Lucasfilm colleagues, have crafted together — it has been a labor of love.”
Below you’ll find an official synopsis for Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.
“In Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, fans play a droid repair technician who crash lands on Batuu after a pirate attack. In typical Star Wars fashion, they’ll quickly get swept up into a grand adventure on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost. Players can converse with Seezelslak (Bobby Moynihan) in his cantina and be transported to other places and times in the Star Wars galaxy through his legendary tales. They can also receive important missions to complete in the wilds of Batuu, encountering new and iconic characters along the way, like the pirate Tara Rashin (Debra Wilson).”
Why must The High Republic be novels and not a live-action series on Disney+? I love the setting and the premise, but not the medium. Though I fully acknowledge Imay be in the minority on this one.
Virtual Reality will likely become standard in the gaming world. The player will be immersed like never before. And a franchise like Star Wars is sure to be at the forefront of this technology. With an entire galaxy to explore from many different viewpoints the possibilities are nearly endless.
