Ian McDiarmid Reacts To The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Trailer

A new series of films from The Last Jedi writer-director Rian Johnson are still in work, so are the films from Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D B Weiss. And while Lucas oversaw the original trilogy and then returned to the well in the late 90s to bring his prequel trilogy to fruition (to somewhat mixed results...), the third and final trilogy in his Star Wars franchise moved ahead without his direct involvement.

EA has a history of shoehorning in loot boxes and microtransactions into its games, so the news that Fallen Order will be omitting these "features" is good news.

The lack of micro transactions in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes as welcome surprise since the game is being published by EA who have focused heavily on micro transactions in recent years.

Jedi: Fallen Order is an action-melee game.

Jedi: Fallen Order's story falls on the timeline of Star Wars canon shortly after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. George Lucas famously first conceived of, wrote, produced, and directed Star Wars: A New Hope, changing the faces of cinema and fandom forever.

Cal is played by Cameron Monaghan, who has been in shows such as Gotham and Shameless.

Warriors start playoff road, without LeBron there at the end
Even though the last game was a blowout, the series between Denver and San Antonio has stayed fairly competitive. It was the fifth time in his career to achieve that, but that wasn't enough for Heat to get into the playoffs.

An antagonist is the Second Sister Inquisitor, who is also a Force-sensitive, so it's not like Cal is going to be overpowered.

Jedi: Fallen Order takes place following Episode III and the institution of Order 66, which mandated the extermination of the Jedi.

"This movie had a very, very specific challenge", Abrams told IGN at Star Wars Celebration. With LucasFilm Games being spun up again, maybe we'll start getting more, and hopefully better, games. Respawn Entertainment CEO Vince Zampella confirmed this during the presentation, also reiterating that Jedi: Fallen Order is a single-player-only title - no multiplayer modes available.

It looks like Cal is joined by a robot companion named BD-1. They were very tight-lipped beyond that, but it was made explicitly clear that this particular lightsaber will play a major part in the game's story.

The end of Force Awakens, we felt like 'Oh my god, we did it.' But we still didn't quite know what it would even look like, in a way.
