Know your lore: The Celestials, Rakatan Infinite Empire and Unification

Hello, Star Wars and SWTOR fans! I am here today to share an awesome video from one of my favorite Star Wars YouTube channels, Star Wars Reading Club. It’s actually from back in 2017 but I don’t know if you have ever come across it and it’s so good, we figured this was a great time to highlight it.

If you did see it back in 2017 when it first came out, it’s still worth another watch. Plus, they have a bunch more videos you can check out now, too. This one is a complete history of the Celestials, Rakatan Infinite Empire and Unification.

If you’re a big canon, SWTOR and Star Wars history nerd, you’re going to love this. If you love the Old Republic, you’re going to love this.

About this video:

In our first Prelude episode of Star Wars The Old Republic: A Complete History multi-video series, I discuss the era before the signing of the Galactic Constitution in 25,053BBY, which ushered in the era of the Old Republic. We’ll examine the influence that the mysterious Celestials and the Rakata had on the millennia during this era. Further, I will demonstrate the connections between the brutal enslavement of the galaxy by the Rakatan Infinite Empire and the unification of the galaxy’s Core Worlds, which laid the foundations for the Galactic Republic.
