An animated Star Wars featurette introduces fans to Jedi Master Avar Kriss, a major figure in The High Republic’s books and comics.
An animated Star Wars featurette serves to introduce fans to Avar Kriss, a Jedi Master and key figure in the High Republic era.
Avar is described as the “paragon” of the Jedi Order, whose “compassion as a leader is inspiring.” She has an array of Force abilities at her disposal, the rarest and most noteworthy of which being her ability to see the Force itself as music, “eliciting tone, rhythm and a beat.” Avar also led the rescue effort for the planet Hetzal amid the galaxy-wide hyperspace catastrophe known as the Great Disaster.
Avar Kriss was introduced to the Star Wars universe via holocron cameo nearly one whole year ago in Star Wars: The Rise of Kylo Ren #3, which — written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Will Sliney — was published by Marvel Comics in February of 2020. The High Republic publishing initiative officially launched earlier this month on Jan. 5, with Avar serving as the main protagonist of Soule’s novel Star Wars: Light of the Jedi.
In addition to Light of the Jedi, Avar appears in author Cavan Scott and illustrator Petur Antonsson’s young readers book Star Wars: The Great Jedi Rescue, which also launched on Jan. 5. She can also be seen in writer Scott and artist Ario Anindito’s Marvel Comics series Star Wars: The High Republic, which released its first issue on Jan. 6.
Written by Cavan Scott and illustrated by Ario Anindito, Star Wars: The High Republic #2 goes on sale Feb. 3 from Marvel Comics.
