Big News for Star Wars Fans this Weekend
This weekend in Chicago was the annual Star Wars Celebration. It is the ultimate meeting for Star Wars fans to show off their fandom through cosplay, gather to discuss the various Star Wars story lines (comic books, novels, etc.) and learn the latest news from the Star Wars universe.
This year brought some big news for the movie lovers, Star Wars gamers and the TV show that will be available on Disney+.
First, we got the first teaser trailer for the final installment in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. From the looks of the trailer, we are in for a treat for the final story. You can watch it above.
Second, we got news of the latest Star Wars video game, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. This will be an original story that takes place after the events of Episode III. You play a young Jedi who has survived Order 66. You must stay "under the radar" of the empire as you progress through the game. Watch the trailer below.
There is some hesitation with this game, though. E.A. (Electronic Arts) has the rights to make Star Wars games. However, E.A. doesn't have the best reputation in the gaming world right now. Mainly from the over use of micro transactions and loot boxes in their games. E.A. claims they won't use them in this game but everyone is skeptical.
Third, we got news of the first live action Star Wars TV series that will debut on the Disney+ streaming service, The Mandalorian. No official video has been released yet except for some awful cell phone video of the screening at Star Wars Celebration.
It's an exciting time to be a Star Wars fan right now. May the Force be with you.
