Luke Skywalker will be Star Wars’ first time traveler

Time travel has been a part of Star Wars for years – and Luke Skywalker could become a time traveler, linked to the history of the High Republic Era.

It seems like Luke Skywalker Could become Star wars‘first-time travelers – like Lucasfilms Star Wars: The High Republic The Transmedia initiative is linked to the prophecy of the Chosen One. Time travel has actually been an integral part of Star wars for years; it was occasionally mentioned in the old extended universe, especially in Paul S. Kemp’s novel Transverse current and a Force called “Flow-Walking” in the “Legacy of the Force” series. These stories were erased from canon when Disney bought Lucasfilm back in 2012, apparently giving up time travel.

Recently, in Star Wars rebels season 4, Ezra Bridger discovered World Between the Worlds. This is another dimensional plan where two aspects of the Force meet; the cosmic force that binds the universe together and the living force that is connected with life. From World Between the Worlds it is possible to touch any moment in the past, present or even the future – although it is unclear whether it is possible to change the course of history, or whether something done through World Between the Worlds has always been destined to be. Star Wars rebels showrunner Dave Filoni clearly imagined that the world between the worlds was primarily a plot device to bring back his beloved former Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano, and so most viewers assumed it would probably never be used again. But Ahsoka The Disney + TV show logo suggests time travel that allows Ahsoka to interact with Anakin Skywalker again – suggesting that time travel will be a big part of the franchise going forward.

There is a sense that time is coming Star wars was inevitable. After all, this is a franchise that leaps around the timeline with impunity – meaning that writers will sooner or later want their characters to explore the galaxy’s past, present and future. And another opportunity may very well present itself Star Wars: The High Republic, the transmedia initiative that took place 200 years before Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

The chosen prophecy may involve time travel

Lucasfilm Publishing spent years planning Star Wars: The High Republic, and they started planting seeds for it long before it started. One of the most intriguing examples seems to have been in Claudia Gray’s Master & Apprentice, a novel that revealed countless ancient Jedi prophecies – and finally gives readers the text of the very prophecy of the Chosen One. It is crucial that it revealed that prophecy existed in a context; Qui-Gon Jinn was one of the few Jedi trained in the prophecies, and he recognized enough of those who happened around him to be cleared for the appearance of the Chosen One. At least one of these prophecies already seems to be linked to the story being told in Star Wars: The High Republic – “Only through the sacrifice of many Jedi will the Order cleanse the sin committed against the nameless,“predicted it. Concept art revealed in connection with Star Wars: The High Republic has already shown a design for a creature labeled as “nameless” while Star Wars Adventures: Ghosts of Vader’s Castle gave a sense of what might have happened to these creatures. In it, a historian discussed “records from Nameless Purge,“gives a sense of the darker context of the Prophecy of the Chosen.

Another of the mysterious prophecies surrounding the Chosen One seems to suggest a time travel aspect to it all. “When the force itself becomes ill, the past and the future must be split and combined,declared an ancient sage. It also feels as if it has a conceptual connection to events of the High Republic era because the space pirates known as Nihil use beings they refer to as Levelers against the Jedi, monstrous beings whose mere presence twists and Levelers are the ultimate Force predators, and their potential is perfectly demonstrated in Claudia Grays’ recently published novel The fallen star, where seven Levelers are located on the Jedi space station Starlight Beacon – and each Jedi on the station gradually loses their ability to draw on the Force, and perceives the Force around the Starlight Beacon as wrong in some way … even sick. Oddly enough, Lucasfilm seems reluctant to give readers a sense of what Levelers looks like – but novels have provided vague descriptions that resemble the concept art of the nameless.

Luke Skywalker seems to be experiencing the high republic era

Star Wars 20-cover Luke Skywalker Yoda Holocron

Charles Soule, the architect behind Star Wars: The High Republic, also currently writing on Marvel’s flagship Star wars cartoon, sat in between The empire strikes back and The return of the Jedi. This tells the story of Luke Skywalker’s quest to learn what it means to be a Jedi, and in Star wars # 19 he rediscovered a Holocron apparently created by Master Yoda a long time ago. The original image was indistinct, but the front of Star wars # 20 showed Yoda in the clothes he wore during the High Republic Era. It really feels as if the threads of the High Republic and original trilogy poker are being woven ever closer together.

Even more exciting, though, is that a preview was posted on Star wars website suggests that Luke will actually interact with the Jedi of the High Republic – probably through some sort of mysterious experience. It sees Luke visit the Mid Rim planet Gazian, which he believes is important to the history of the Jedi Order. There, he is thrown into a kind of mysterious world, where he interacts with another creature that is already there – recognizable as a slightly older Elzar Mann, one of the most important Jedi in the High Republic Era. It seems that different time periods really come together – in fulfillment of the ancient prophecy. Luke Skywalker’s experience feels as much like a form of time travel as anything else, and it’s safe to assume that this is only the beginning, because Star Wars: The High Republic Phase I is just about to end – and there are two more phases left.

The High Republic could bring three time periods together

Sunday Star Wars: The High Republic Phase II will go another 150 years back in time, which means it will take place 350 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. This means that there are now three-time periods in play – and that also corresponds to the mysterious prophecy about Force’s disease. “When the force itself becomes ill, the past and the future must be split and combined,says the ancient Jedi prophecy. Provided that the first period explored in Star Wars: The High Republic is at the heart of the prophecy, which means that its past is being explored in Phase II – and its future is being set up in the present series of Star wars comics, as Luke Skywalker himself is drawn into these events.

This would make perfect sense because all of these prophecies are supposed to relate to the Elect – meaning that it is rather strange that some of them take place centuries before Anakin Skywalker was born. But if Luke Skywalker were to somehow be involved in an arc that transcended time, he could learn from the Jedi in the High Republic Era – get a glimpse of the Jedi at their height, at a time when they believed in concepts as redemption. Once the adventure is over, this can be added into his overall narrative in Star wars the saga that helped explain why he was convinced that his father Darth Vader could be redeemed – despite the fact that his teachers, Yoda and Obi-Wan, did not believe it was possible. If this theory is correct, then Marvel Comics is going to tell a time travel adventure in which Luke Skywalker encounters Jedi from the past before returning to his own time to bring redemption to his father – to do Star Wars: The High Republic an absolutely integral part of Star wars saga.
