Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new virtual reality game for Oculus Quest that will allow fans to venture into the world of Batuu from Disney theme parks. By way of the game’s narrative, fans can also be transported to other places and times in the Star Wars galaxy when they hear tales from an alien bartender named Seezelslak (voiced by Bobby Moynihan). One of those stories will take us way back to the time of The High Republic, the setting for Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars publishing initiative that takes place 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. You can get a sneak peek at what’s to come in the first trailer for this Tales from Galaxy’s Edge High Republic story.

Star Wars: Tales from Galaxy’s Edge High Republic Story Trailer

The High Republic adventure within Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is called Temple of Darkness, and it seems like this is the main reason that Frank Oz was brought in as Yoda. This part of the VR experience is a 15-minute story that finds players controlling Ady Sun’Zee (voiced by Ellie Araiza), a Jedi Padawan studying at a remote Jedi research facility on Batuu. A mysterious relic unleashes a torrent of evil inside the temple, and Ady is the sole survivor. After sending an urgent distress signal to the Jedi Council, she must work alongside Jedi Master Yoda to confront the darkness that now lurks within the temple walls — and within herself.

In the trailer above, you can see red vines have taken over part of this Jedi Temple, making it look like the aliens from Steven Spielberg’s War of the Worlds have stumbled upon the Star Wars galaxy. There are also some nasty creatures lurking about that you’ll probably have to dispatch with using your lightsaber skills.
