Lys Solay, a young Jedi initiate during the High Republic era, invites you to join her as she Walks on the Wild Side and meets a trio of GFFA creatures. Make sure you’re wearing sturdy but comfortable footwear…. Spoiler: Background for Lys Solay and the show "Young Jedi Adventures:" It’s aimed at preschool and early school-aged children and set during the High Republic Era. Kai Brightstar (Human), Lys Solay (Pantoran), and Nubs (Pooba) are friends and initiates at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. They and their classmates are sent to the Jedi outpost on planet Tanoo, where they are mentored by Master Zia (Human) and (occasionally) Master Yoda. They have a non-Jedi friend named Nash Durango (Human), who is a pilot and has a small droid buddy named RJ-83. The kids all look to be about seven or eight years old. Reviews of the show can be found here and here. The plots are simple, the color palette is bold, and the kids are adorable. Actually, pretty much everything in this series is adorable – even the “dangerous” animals, the greedy businessman, and the pirates. (In one episode, I fully expected the pirates to break into a GFFA version of “I’ve Got a Dream” from the Disney movie Tangled.) The violence is negligible – other than a head cold and a sprained ankle, no one gets seriously hurt, or even dirty. The Jedi younglings use practice lightsabers which allow them to spar, but can’t cut through or actually burn anything. Lys is a wildlife enthusiast who has the Galactic Guide to Creatures pretty much memorized (if you’re a fan of the Galaxy of Creatures animated shorts series, you’ll recognize a couple of guest stars in one episode of Young Jedi Adventures). All three of my stories will feature Lys (and friends) interacting with various animals. In keeping with the tone of the series, these stories are short and simple.
