This vibrant, aged-down program is set during the High Republic Era 200 years prior to 1999’s “The Phantom Menace.” It initially debuted on Star Wars Day, May 4, 2023, with the first seven chapters centering around the energetic Jedi youngling characters of Kai Brightstar, Lys Solay, and Nubs learning the ways of the Force from Master Yoda at a secret Jedi temple outpost on the planet Tenoo. Along for the wild space adventures are pilot Nash Durango and her co-pilot “backpack” droid RJ-83.
