With Star Wars Celebration wrapped up for another year, there was still more information to come from the wider scope of that galaxy far, far away.
"Lucasfilm is thrilled to expand its relationship with the talented and creative folks at IDW to bring Star Wars comics to kids", said Michael Siglain, creative director of Lucasfilm Publishing.
"These new lands at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will transport guests to a whole new Star Wars planet".
This is an interesting step for the franchise, signalling that the developers of Star Wars Battlefront 2 are interested in cultivating a proper story rather than stringing together some cool missions and calling it a day.
"Our goal as we set out on this journey, was to create a place that was so authentic, so real, that when our guests stepped inside, they're there. It's this remote frontier outpost".
As a Star Wars fan who believes that the main saga centers around the Skywalker family tree, I really hope the answer is the former. Speaking about the project, Iger said: "I am thrilled to announce the next chapter in the long and exciting history between Disney Parks and Star Wars".
Lucasfilm would like to thank the ReedPOP team for working with us on Celebration and helping make the show a successful and safe experience for the fans. Coincidentally, that makes it the flawless place to hide, especially those trying to escape the growing reach of the First Order. You may be asked to do tasks for one side or the other in a bar and, whether you choose to do it or not, could affect your park experiences. Johnson says that the mineral planet will end up playing a major role in the film, hinting at a "pressing and immediate threat", which means that the scene in the ride will probably be a kickass, blood red battle royal. Likewise, because the campaign from Star Wars: Battlefront II will follow the events of Return of the Jedi, it's possible that the campaign and novel will have some details from the previously released, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
