It's 2023, which means our beloved Jedi Academy is turning 20 years old. It's hard to believe it has been this long, but at the same time, 2003 feels like a lifetime ago. For some people here, that is literally true, for others it defined a childhood or young adult life. If you are reading this, chances are high that this game meant a lot to you at some point and hopefully still does in some way. Nobody can be expected to hang on to one game for 20 years, but it is safe to say that if you played this game 20 years ago, you have probably returned to it more than once over the last two decades. There's something magical about Jedi Academy that keeps us coming back.
This page's goal is to give you a rundown of everything we and the rest of the community have done and are planning on doing to celebrate JKA's birthday. Some things are still in the works and have not been added to this page, so stay tuned to our news section and social accounts for updates.
Here's a recap and a big thank you to all who participated in the contest and server event and who were and still are a part of this game's community.
