The new epic book series that Star Wars will be releasing is going to give us insight into the Star Wars that we have never seen before. The series will take us through the times of the “High Republic” when the Republic was at it’s strongest with thousands of Jedi all over the galaxy, doing their jobs and protecting the innocent.
One thing that we have all been wondering since we heard of this new series was what about Yoda? The 900-year-old Jedi Master that died in Return of the Jedi had been training others since he was 100 years old. That’s an 800-year wide gap of what Yoda was doing while he was on the road to achieving the title of Grand Master.
Well, it has been confirmed that we will get to meet Yoda and his younger self and see what he was up to in the times of the High Republic. There will be a plethora of interesting Jedi masters to meet that helped Yoda on his journey and taught him everything that they knew.
What Will Yoda Be Up TO?
It has been confirmed that the Yoda we will meet will be on the Jedi Council, but will not have the title of Grand Master, yet.
He will have the task of training younglings and Padawans as they travel across the galaxy learning about the universe around them, how it works, and most importantly the way the force interacts and binds everything they know.
Daniel Jose Older described it as “the Force study abroad program, basically”. So, this will be something to look forward to. I know that I enjoyed exploring the galaxy in The Clone Wars and Rebels and this will give us even more depth to the universe and planets that we know and love but in a new and exciting era.
Older has a large and difficult task ahead of him, he will be creating a new side of Yoda, a younger and even less-wise version that we have not met yet. Ever since Empire released everyone had looked at Yoda as this wise Jedi Master who was as close to perfect as one can get. Older will be giving us a version of Yoda who has not reached that point of enlightenment yet and is still searching.
I look forward to discovering this younger version of Yoda and learning about his journey to becoming Grand Master. What are you most excited for?
Thank you for reading and remember, utinni!
