The new show is set in the High Republic era, a period of time before the main Star Wars films. This marks the first live-action Star Wars project set during the High Republic era.

The show’s lead roles will be played by Lee Jung-jae as the Jedi Master Sol, and Amandla Stenberg as the former Padawan Mae. The cast also includes Manny Jacinto, Dafne Keen, Charlie Barnett, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Joonas Suotamo, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Abigail Thorn in supporting roles.
