After we say that Star Wars has an advanced relationship with demise, it’s normally about how the franchise is unwilling to let go of its personal previous, or how a need to cheat the ultimate finish has pushed a lot of the series’ theological explorations lately. Generally, it simply means you must be persistent as hell to outlive being dragged away by large monsters into the bowels of an exploding area station.
That was the case for younger Wookiee Jedi Burryaga Agaburry, a breakout spotlight of the primary section of Lucasfilm’s prequel publishing initiative Star Wars: The High Republic. The face of a number of youngsters’s storybooks and a supporting character throughout the novels of the primary section of the initiative—set a number of centuries earlier than the Star Wars prequels—Burryaga (Burry to his buddies) seemingly met a dire destiny within the climax of section one in Claudia Grey’s The Fallen Star. There, the Padawan was hauled into the darkish by a gaggle of escaped Rathtars, the tentacled creatures launched in The Power Awakens, aboard the quickly destabilizing area station Starlight Beacon. Burry was thought lifeless when the station crash-landed right into a planet shortly after his disappearance, however excellent news! That is Star Wars and we’ll be having none of that, please and thanks.
The information was confirmed at present by Lucasfilm throughout an episode of The Excessive Republic Present, a companion webseries hosted by Krystina Arielle. Merely noting that “Burry Lives”—akin to the same declarative assertion made by Star Wars producer Dave Filoni when the destiny of his creation Ahsoka Tano was left unsure throughout the second season of Star Wars Rebels—it was additional confirmed that the main points surrounding Burryaga’s destiny shall be revealed in a brief story contained in Tales of Gentle and Life, an upcoming anthology launch making its first-to-market debut at San Diego Comedian-Con later this month.
I imply, on the one hand, I don’t need to sound like I’m advocating for the demise of a kid (Burryaga’s age has by no means been explicitly confirmed, however he’s a Padawan, so he’s presumably the Wookiee equal of a tween). On the opposite, there’s something spectacularly foolish a couple of Padawan surviving being hauled away by large monsters even additional deeply into the innards of an area station that was within the strategy of breaking in half, and then plummeting by way of the ambiance and crashing right into a planet’s oceans with excessive pressure shortly after.
Within the age of the Excessive Republic, when the Jedi have been on the peak of their energy, affect, and skill to bullshit demise itself, they really have been constructed completely different, apparently. Extra particulars about Burryaga’s destiny, and the third and final phase of the Excessive Republic publishing line, shall be revealed throughout the Lucasfilm publishing panel at San Diego Comedian-Con on July 21.
