Nothing is safe on the internet. Not even the super secret Star Wars project known as Project Luminous. Del Rey Books and Star Wars official channels were all set to reveal the next chapter in Star Wars history tonight, but before the official word could come down, Random House Publishing let the secret slip through their fingers.

The slip up by Random House has since been re-covered, but it was up long enough for the internet to grab all the info it needed. Here we go.

The first release of Project Luminous will be a brand new novel set in the High Republic era called Star Wars The High Republic: Light of the Jedi.

As you can see above, the novel is written by Charles Soule, the person behind the new Star Wars 2020 comic series and The Rise of Kylo Ren series. The description of the pre-order page reads as follows:

The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. Until. . . .

You can technically pre-order the book now using this link:

Based on the information provided on the site, it will release on August 25, 2020.

Another day, another Star Wars reveal spoiled by the internet gods. One day we may live to see a true Star Wars reveal that actually surprises people!
