Back when Shadows of the Empire arrived – a project unfairly maligned these days but in the pre-Special Edition year of 1996 was an unexpected treasure – we were promised a marketing blitz unseen outside of a movie release, a film without a film approach that gave us computer games, trading cards, a novel, the superb Joel McNeely score, Dark Horse Comics, Kenner figures and more. With The High Republic arriving in August, just 2 days before we are supposed to reconvene for Celebration Anaheim, our pal Jordan Maison over at Cinelinx has unveiled some interesting nuggets regarding the trademark situation of the series.
Interesting smidgen of info for #StarWars: The High Republic. A glance at the trademarks reveal options for tie-in material more in line with product releases they’ve done for shows (not as extensive as films), including apps, Christmas decor, videogames, office stuff, toys, etc! pic.twitter.com/54VVoDPmzF

Here’s a closer look at the trademarks Jordan has uncovered:
It would hardly be surprising – with the advent of Disney Plus, Star Wars Kids and a healthy Star Wars YouTube channel – if a High Republic TV project, be it live action or animated were to be announced. With a much broader range of products than a non-TV project would enjoy, could we be edging closer to a 24 FPS dip into this new era of Star Wars storytelling?
