What Is ‘Young Jedi Adventures’ About?
Set during the High Republic era, Young Jedi Adventures follows three Jedi younglings, Kai Brightstar (Jamaal Avery Jr.), Lys Solay (Juliet Donenfeld), and Nubs, along with their friend Nash Durango (Emma Berman), as they live and train on the remote, idyllic planet of Tenoo with their master Zia Zanna (Nasim Pedrad), and face off against the young space pirate Taborr Val Dorn (Trey Diaz Murphy).
Recently, the world of Young Jedi Adventures branched out to include characters from the High Republic publishing initiative, which has spanned books and comics since early 2021. Collider’s Arezou Amin had the opportunity to sit down recently with writers Katie Kaniewski and Cavan Scott, whose episodes “Stuck in the Muck” and “Charhound Chase” featured the characters of Estala Maru (Liam O’Brien), Loden Greatstorm (Matthew Yang King) and Bell Zetiffar (Marcus Scribner) respectively. There, they talked about the process of bridging the gap between the more lore-heavy galaxy and the far calmer, slice of life story aimed at a younger audience and also teased which characters they’d bring in next.
Young Jedi Adventures is streaming now on Disney+.
