To set up the so-called golden age of the Jedi, there had to be some even further-back history set up, and we're seeing hints of it dropped by books like A Test of Courage. Punch it!

The High Republic was a golden age for the Jedi for many reasons, including a wider variety of Force-fueled abilities. It highlights just how much was forgotten or lost with the rise of the Empire, and makes you wonder how much Luke Skywalker was able to recover. Punch it!

It's interesting to consider the Nihil's goals both in isolation within A Test of Courage, as well as the larger story that includes Light of the Jedi. And also, what novels will be true "sequels" versus just the next story in the High Republic. Punch it!

A Test of Courage, the first middle-grade novel of the High Republic publishing initiative, is great fun and introduces a Jedi prodigy who has a lifetime of growth and experience ahead of her. Punch it!

Cara Dune appeared in one more episode in season 2 than she did in season 1, but her involvement was more functional in terms of moving plot along, rather having a well-developed arc of her own. Unless, of course, her false talk about not being a "joiner" is going to lead to something else down the line... Punch it!

On today's episode, we're talking about what Charles Soule referred to as a sort of "Chapter 0" to Light of the Jedi: "Go Together (Part 1)," the first of the new "Starlight Stories" for Star Wars Insider. Punch it!

It'd take you barely any time to watch them, but the two High Republic character videos so far tell a story that goes beyond simply introducing you to two Jedi from the era. Punch it!

Here's the first two videos from the "Characters of Star Wars: The High Republic" series, featuring Vernestra Rwoh and Avar Kris:

What makes the Nihil so dangerous, aside from their, um, nihilism? The "Paths." Think of it as the particular way they can hack hyperspace. We'll discuss further on today's show... Punch it!

Light of the Jedi handles the heavy lifting admirably. It has to world-build for The High Republic era, introduce a raft of new characters, and create a credible threat for the Jedi, and succeeds on nearly all counts. Punch it!

You might look at Star Wars elements of The Sims or Minecraft and never wonder whether what you're seeing is part of 'canon' storytelling. But there's a little more complexity to the story of what goes into Star Wars video games... Punch it!

Star Wars - in particular, the prequels and Revenge of the Sith - is helping me process what happened in the real world yesterday. And it was bad enough yesterday that I couldn't do the show without addressing it...
