New Star Wars Saga Reportedly Set During High Republic Era

There is little doubt that fans are now looking forward to what could happen for the Star Wars franchise now that the Skywalker Saga is finally over. Interestingly, it looks like the new films will be going back to the past. A new report reveals that the next Star Wars saga will be set during the High Republic Era.

The report comes from Making Star Wars which reveals that the next set of films will take place 400 years before the events in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. This would place the new movies in the High Republic era when the Sith's Rule of Two was first established and Yoda was still a (relatively) young Jedi.

It's an exciting thought considering that it could mean we'll see more of Yoda (not Baby Yoda) in action. In addition to that, there is a huge possibility that Darth Bane, who established the Rule of Two, will show up in a Star Wars film. Needless to say, we're already looking forward to these new movies.

Interestingly, the idea for the new Star Wars saga was actually brought in by Game of Thrones executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. However, the duo has since abandoned the project to produce exclusive content for Netflix. For now, it is still unclear who will take over for Benioff and Weiss but it sounds like Disney and Lucasfilm are both eager to pursue the projects.

The new Star Wars saga has not yet been given an official production start date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
