A new series of books and comics to start to rewrite SW's past. There hasn't been much at all covering this period before. To mention it was a blank slate is wrong as it is only because of Disney making the old novels "Legends" that caused this. Concentrating on the jedi means we will see Yoda appear in the stories.

They mention they are going to show what the jedi fear. Jedi are taught not to fear as it leads to the dark side. Nihill can't be Sith as in TPM Maul mentions at last we will reveal ourselves. Maybe the Sith are pulling the strings in the background.

Siamese Sith, I added "The High Republic" to topic title as this is what LFL are referencing for project going forward. I moved the topic into print section as this there is no confirmation of any movies being made for this era at this stage.

Thanks Pep!
I’m gonna try and keep an open mind about this but, as you stated this isn’t a blank slate.
My initial impression was when I saw the trailer the other night, “Look at this corporate machine trying to figure out how to unlock the mysteries of Star Wars!”
Then when I saw the brainstorming ideas on that white board I laughed!

instead of dinosaurs they should have referenced dragons (ie krayt dragons). Possibly the dragons is where they thought jedi being like knight of the round table. Could how the dragon bones shown in Ep4 be explained in a story of a jedi 'fearing' the dragon and killing it to protect the locals?
