    According to Cavan Scott, one of the architects of The High Republic publishing initiative, while it is taking place at the end of The High Republic era, the upcoming Disney+ streaming series The Acolyte did not impact or alter the storytelling plans for The High Republic series of books and comics.

    Cavan Scott, the writer behind the ongoing Star Wars: The High Republic Marvel Comic and the author of the upcoming The High Republic novel The Rising Storm, recently sat down for a podcast interview with Comicbook.com. He discussed the general plan of The High Republic publishing venture, which began earlier this year and is set 200 years before the prequel trilogy.

    The Acolyte, announced at the Disney Investor Day, is being developed by writer Leslye Headland, perhaps best known for the Netflix series Russian Doll. The series, said to be a mystery-thriller, is set at the end of the High Republic era, leading some to speculate if the two are connected, or if The Acolyte impacted or altered any of the storytelling plans of The High Republic.

    Scott said that isn't the case:

    When The Acolyte was announced in December, it was described as taking place at the end of The High Republic, though there could be tangential connections as there always tends to be in various Star Wars properties. That makes sense as the overall plan for the books and comics has been set out by the collective of writers, including Scott, Justina Ireland, Claudia Grey, Daniel Jose Older, and Charles Soule.
