Project Luminous has been mentioned for a long while now - since around April of 2019.

Charles Soule, Daniel José Older, Cavan Scott, Justina Ireland and Claudia Gray are the main people involved in the project - so it has potential for some high quality work.

Details finally emerged on the project today, with ‘Project Luminous’ being revealed to be the Star Wars: The High Republic publishing campaign (books and comics). More information can be found below…

In short (the blurb from the above Star Wars website article)

'Later this year, Lucasfilm will launch an epic new era of Star Wars storytelling that will be explored through multiple voices in adult and young adult novels, children’s books, and comics from a variety of publishers including Disney Lucasfilm Press, Del Rey, IDW Publishing, and Marvel.

Star Wars: The High Republic, which has previously been referred to as “Project Luminous”, will be set in an era when the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order are at their zenith, about 200 years before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. This period on the Star Wars timeline will not overlap any of the filmed features or series currently planned for production, giving creators and partners a vast amount of room to tell Star Wars stories with new adventures and original characters.’
