First Look at Young Yoda in Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures Comic

Well, it seems that The Child from The Mandalorian started a Yoda-boom among Star Wars fans. Starting next year, fans will be treated to even more Yoda thanks to IDW Publishing’s Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures comic. The upcoming story will feature an almost 200-years-younger Jedi Master Yoda dealing with training young Padawans.

“While he’s already a respected member of the Jedi Council at this point, we meet Yoda in IDW’s The High Republic Adventures series doing what he loves best: looking out for the young folks — in this case, a group of Padawans traveling around the galaxy to learn the ways of the Jedi with a hands-on approach,” said author Daniel José Older in a recent interview. “The Force study abroad program, basically.”

Fans will also get the chance to see a slight change in the character’s design.

“Well, Yoda is not that much younger — around 700 years old instead of about 900. But we thought that with it being hundreds of years earlier, he would definitely have a different outfit, maybe even more than one,” added Lucasfilm art director Troy Alders in the same interview. “His age, as far as the way that his hair and face look, is maybe just slightly younger, but fairly close to his look in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.”

IDW Publishing’s Star Wars: The High Republic Adventures comic will debut in January 2021. You can check out some concept art for Yoda’s attires in the gallery below.
