    Well, with the news of a further delay for films, it's good to know we still have The High Republic series to look forward to in 2021. Today we get a look at two more Jedi who will be fighting the good fight in the pages of The High Republic. Lucasfilm has already announced these novels and comics will cover and unexplored part of the Jedi history taking place roughly a century before The Phantom Menace. StarWars.com shared an exclusive look at two Jedi in this impressive lineup.


    First up, Sskeer! While you may want to pre-order whatever stuffed animal incarnation Disney no doubt has in store for this Trandoshan Jedi it sounds like he might be more keen to stand at your door with a lightsaber offering protection.

    From Cavan Scott, writer of a forthcoming The Hight Republic Marvel comic:
    I'm already a fan. Jedi like Sskeer who don't try to hold back the existential troubles of what it means to be a demigod in the galaxy far, far away. They'll probably let you know each and every time. Matt Martin, part of the Lucasfilm Story Group lending editorial guidance to writers of Star Wars, referred to him as 'my sweet lizard boy' which is a promising sign. I feel like we've found our Chewbacca of The High Republic!


    Kriss has been introduced before as 'the best of the best' and is very much affected by the cataclysm we've been promised will open this new era. Kriss has a little more exposure to fans than Sskeer, but we should be very excited. It sounds like she has a promising backstory from the 'Hero of Hetzal' story that's been teased, but beyond that we really don't know much.

    One thing that's very interesting is it's mentioned the San Tekka family are an aristocracy helping out the Republic.

    From Charles Soule, speaking to StarWars.com:
    Sounds like we are going to be doing some unpacking this January! The High Republic is set to debut across multiple publishing platforms in January 2021.

    All of these books are available for pre-order. You must do what you feel is right, of course.
