Lucasfilm Publishing revealed the Age of Star Wars line during San Diego Comic Con 2018, where it was announced that there would be 30 issues in total for the project, with each focusing on one hero or villain from each specific era. The maxi-series is split up into three sections – Star Wars: Age of Republic encorporates the prequel trilogy, Star Wars: Age of Rebellion the original trilogy and Star Wars: Age of Resistance the current sequel trilogy.

Jody Houser will reportedly be writing Age of Republic, Greg Pak is handling Age of Rebellion and Tom Taylor is taking care of Age of Resistance. The first issue will be Star Wars: Age of Republic #1 – Darth Maul.”

      It should be Age of Republic, Age of Rebellion and Age of Renewal. The third part should consist of Thrawn, the Yuzahn Vong, Brakiss, Jaina, Jacen and Anakin Solo, Lowbacca with EmTeeDee, Tenel Ka, Tahiri and maybe Zonama Sekot in the background.

        despite the complaints about the old eu at least Han Luke and Leia were treated better than the sh*tty way they were treated in the non-canon sequel trilogy

    Looking at that merged triptych poster:

    “Age Of Republic” – “Age Of Rebellion” – “Age Of Resistance”

    If Disney had told the story correctly (i.e., not trashed Lucas’ treatment for the ST), it could have and should have read:

    “Age Of Republic” – “Age Of Rebellion” – “Age Of Restoration”

    Really shows how crooked/phoney the last part of the saga is under Disney, in my opinion.
