Star Wars The High Republic - The Great Jedi Rescue Review

Book Review | Star Wars: The High Republic – The Great Jedi Rescue

The Great Jedi Rescue is a great addition to your library and a perfect supplement for Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi

The Great Jedi Rescue. For life and light! In conjunction with Charles Soule’s Light of the Jedi, another story has emerged to help introduce The High Republic era of Star Wars.

Star Wars: The High Republic – The Great Jedi Rescue | Cavan Scott

The Great Jedi Rescue was written by Cavan Scott (who also wrote the High Republic comic book previously reviewed here on The Future of the Force) and illustrated by Petur Antonsson.  It is aimed primarily at the 6-8-year-old age group.  It is 24 pages long and a perfect introduction to The High Republic for younger Star Wars fans.

Visual Style

If you are a highly visual type person, this is a great addition to your Star Wars library and a perfect supplement for the aforementioned Light of the Jedi.  Scott presents an excellent, abridged version of the first “act” of Soule’s Light of the Jedi, primarily focusing on the great disaster. And the Jedi response to it.  Specific attention is paid to the young Wookiee padawan Burryaga.

Antonsson’s artwork was incredible.  Again, for us visual folks, it helps put a face not only to the characters that were presented in the novel, but also some of the starships presented as well.

Verdict

The Great Jedi Rescue is a fun and easy to read addendum to anybody’s The High Republic library, no matter what your age.

Star Wars: The High Republic – The Great Jedi Rescue by Cavan Scott is published by Disney Books and is available to buy NOW!
