At the plot level, the series will take place ten years after the events narrated in Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, at a time when the Jedi finds himself seeking refuge after the great change in power: the Republic has fallen and now begins the period of domination of the Empire.
With Deborah Chow as lead director and Joby Harold as the main mind behind the script, the production will coincide with the 45th anniversary of the original release of Star Wars in theaters and will consist of six episodes.
