Sure I won't be getting some exclusive pre-order content, but it's more important to encourage game companies not to pull stunts like that with their releases. Experience rich and living Star Wars multiplayer battlegrounds across all three eras: prequel, classic, and new trilogy. Set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope - Rogue One eat your heart out - the George Lucas-backed show was pitched as a "much darker" and "more character-based" adventure than its cinematic peers.
While our first inclination is to assume the next trilogy might be about Rey and/or Finn, Lucasfilm seems fairly clear in their declaration of intent.
Recently, some Star Wars merchandise for the Japanese has emphasized the characters of The Last Jedi ahead of the movie's release at the end of this year.
Disney on Thursday (Nov 9) announced plans for a new "Star Wars" trilogy as it builds on the beloved and profitable science fiction film franchise. This is different from writing, and it's different from directing - it's also apparently different from producing.
"We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on The Last Jedi", Johnson and producer Ram Bergman said in a joint statement.
Lucasfilm and Disney haven't announced any additional details on the cast, production dates, or when they expect the first film of the new trilogy to open in theaters.
For everyone who doesn't pre order the game, Star Wars Battlefront 2 arrives on November 17. You can become the master of your own Star Wars hero's journey. Like all things Star Wars in this modern age, one wouldn't be remiss to look to the master behind the master.
