By George Bate and Josh Reilly B.

As the spooky season arrives, so do new episodes of Andor, a brand new animated Star Wars series, the launch of The High Republic Phase II, and more. Below includes a list and description of upcoming Star Wars projects in the month of October. It is important to note all of these release dates are subject to change.

October 4 – The High Republic: Path of Deceit 

Set 150 years before the storytelling of The High Republic Phase I, Path of Deceit is a new young adult novel by Tessa Gratton and Justina Ireland. The publisher’s summary is as follows: “The Outer Rim planet Dalna has become the focus of a Jedi investigation into a stolen Force artifact, and Zallah Macri and her Padawan, Kevmo Zink, arrive on the pastoral world to follow up on a possible connection to a Dalnan missionary group called the Path of the Open Hand. Members of the Path believe that the Force must be free and should not be used by anyone, not even the Jedi. One such believer is Marda Ro, a young woman who dreams of leaving Dalna to spread word of the Path throughout the galaxy. When Marda and Kevmo meet, their connection is instantaneous and electric―until Marda discovers Kevmo is a Jedi. But Kevmo is so kind and eager to learn more about the Path, that she hopes she can convince him of the rightness of her beliefs. What Marda doesn’t realize is that the leader of the Path, a charismatic woman known only as the Mother, has an agenda of her own, and it is one that can never coexist peacefully with the Jedi. In order to follow her faith, Marda may have to choose to become her new friend’s worst enemy….”
