During the 2022 Anheim Star Wars Celebration, Marvel Comics was able to announce its plans for future comic book adaptations of the Star Wars franchise. It's also on the way, alongside two new series dedicated to the High Republic era the first comic series in which Yoda will star.

Star Wars: Yoda will be a limited series that will span ten issues Screenwriter Cavan Scott and artist Nico Leon. A bit like the Disney Plus series dedicated to Obi-Wan (here's our recap of the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi), the series will narrate the adventures of Yoda spanning his roles in the various films of the saga.

The Star Wars Series: Yoda will consist of three narrative arcs: The first part takes place in the times of the High Republic, the second just before the events of the prequel trilogy, the third and last at the end of the clone war.

"I've been fortunate enough to be able to narrate about Yoda in various projects over the years, most notably Dooku: Jedi Lost, and each time I write about him, my love for him grows."Writer Scott told StarWars.com microphones."You could say that my home studio is an altar dedicated to three Star Wars icons: there are several Obi-Wan characters; many, many, many Ewok gadgets [...]; and then there is Yoda. This little guy is everywhere, in figures, artwork and lots of LEGOs. Yoda steals the show, and being able to tell his adventures is a privilege and a responsibility I take very seriously.".

"I've always wanted to do a Yoda series ever since I started working on Star Wars titles"Added Editor Mark Paniccia."Yoda is a special character to me and everyone working on this series. We put our heart and soul into it and I hope the fans will appreciate what we do. It's a unique project and I'm proud of it".

The first edition of Star Wars: Yoda will be released in the United States next October. Below you can admire the cover of Star Wars: Yoda #1 created by Phil Noto.
