"The story is huge, and we're going to move through it along all of those paths. Every book or comic has a piece of the overall story, and you can read as much or as little as you like – but the fullest experience will be if you read it all. Right now, there's an excellent middle grade novel by Justina Ireland out called A Test of Courage, and the Marvel comic series The High Republic just launched with its #1 issue, written by Cavan Scott and drawn by Ario Anindito. In just a few weeks, we'll get Claudia Gray's young adult novel Into the Dark, and Daniel Jose Older and Harvey Tolibao's High Republic Adventures comic, published by IDW. Then, in the summer, we'll see more stories released in various formats, and it'll roll on from there. And of course, there's Acolyte, the Disney + series set during the end of the High Republic, from Leslye Headland."
