But not all are happy with the Jedi's involvement or ready to concern themselves with peace. Rumours begin to swirl that the Jedi bring war in their wake. The distrust and anger that for for so long fuelled he Forever War now threaten to corrupt the communities of Jedha. When violence breaks out on the sacred moon, the war that was meant to end on Jedha may soon engulf the entire world .
