Watch the touching tribute to Carrie Fisher screened at Star Wars Celebration
Lucasfilm closed out the 40 Years of Star Wars panel at Star Wars Celebration with a touching tribute to Carrie Fisher, recognizing her iconic role as Princess Leia throughout the franchise.
Fisher, who passed away last December , has been an integral part of Star Wars from its inception, and the video serves as a brief but moving look back at both her work as Leia Organa, and her tremendous presence off-camera. The tribute also includes appearances from various cast and crew members from the original trilogy and the new films, many of whom highlighted how Fisher’s character has been an inspiration both for their own roles in the films as well as for millions of fans.
Composer John Williams made an appearance to close out the tribute by...

Star Wars Celebration: Watch Moving Carrie Fisher Tribute Video
This year's Star Wars Celebration kicked off in Orlando, Florida with a star-studded look back at 40 years of the blockbuster franchise. The discussion ended with a moving tribute to Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the series and died in December last year.
Star Wars creator George Lucas and Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy spoke warmly about Fisher's impact on their lives, before Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd introduced a video tribute to her mother. Watch it below:

In his tribute to Fisher, Lucas explained what the actress brought to the character of Leia. "She played a part that was very smart, and she was having to hold her own against two big lugs, goofballs that were screwing everything up," he said. "She was the boss. It was her war and when I cast it, I said I want somebody young to play the part. I want somebody very young.
"When Carrie came in, she was that character. She was very strong, very smart, very funny, very bold, very tough, and there really wasn't much of a question. There are not very many people like her. They are one in a billion. For this particular part, it was absolutely perfect... she wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest in the group.
"At the same time she was fun to be with. She was very challenging in terms of pointing out that certain pieces of dialogue were a little hard to say. She was brilliant and obviously we will all miss her, but she will always be the princess who took command and never backed down. Never was in jeopardy. She was always helping the other guys get out of the messes they created. We'll all love her forever and ever."
The 40th anniversary panel was hosted by Warwick Davis, who played Wicket the Ewok in Return of the Jedi. The event brought together many stars from the original and prequel trilogies, including Mark Hamill (Luke), Harrison Ford (Han), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Billy Dee Williams (Lando), Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), and Hayden Christensen (Anakin). There were also video messages from Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn) and Samuel L Jackson (Mace Windu).

Watch Star Wars Celebration’s Moving Tribute to ‘One in a Billion’ Carrie Fisher

The Star Wars franchise honored Carrie Fisher Thursday with an emotional montage showcasing the far-reaching impact she had on the galaxy far, far away. During the 40th anniversary panel of this year’s Star Wars Celebration , Lucasfilm aired a tribute to the late actor, who began her journey as the now iconic Princess Leia in 1977’s A New Hope.
Both her daughter, Billie Lourd , and director George Lucas spoke about what Fisher meant to them leading up to the video, with Lucas remembering how he knew she was right for the role of Leia. “She was very strong, very smart, very funny, very bold, very tough, and there really wasn’t much of a question. There are not very many people like her. They are one in a billion,” he said . “She wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest one in the group.”

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' teaser trailer is finally here
It's going to be a Force-filled Friday: Lucasfilm has finally dropped the long-awaited first trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII, also known as The Last Jedi. And millions of fans around the world are already dissecting every second.
The movie picks up exactly where The Force Awakens left off with a cliffhanger on the cliffs of the planet Ahch-To, where Luke Skywalker had gone — and covered his tracks — in search of the first Jedi temple. But Rey disturbs that retirement by presenting Luke with his original lightsaber, the one lost on Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back.

Here's the Teaser Trailer for 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'
Here's the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, which looks to be another Good entry into a Good series of movies that you're probably familiar with. Most importantly, we have what we believe to be the first line of dialogue from Luke Skywalker since Return of the Jedi. This is Luke talking, right?
We've got no new answers from the trailer, only new questions...Is Luke still the Last Jedi? Is Rey? Why do we need the Jedi to end and what comes next? Having just binge-watched all of the movies but didn't know this trailer was coming out, I must say A surprise, to be sure, but not an unwelcome one.

Our first look at The Last Jedi has arrived. Today at Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm debuted the trailer for for the long-awaited sequel to The Force Awakens.
There’s a lot to take in from this brief teaser. Much of the action is set on Ahch-To, the planet that Rey discovered Luke on at the end of the previous film, and it appears that she’s spending some time there training. At the end, Luke has a foreboding message: “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
In addition to Rey and Luke, there are glimpses of Finn in a pod (presumably still healing from his wounds), Poe Dameron running to his fighter, which is caught in an explosion, and a couple of big battles: one on the ground against what looks like First Order Walkers, and a dogfight...

The first Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer finally sees Luke speak
Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) might not have said a peep at all in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he's the only voice we hear in the entire Star Wars Episode VIII trailer as the Last Jedi.
Just as we hoped, Luke will be teaching Rey (Daisy Ridley) the ways of the force and as she's trains with a lightsaber on the familiar cliffs where Episode VII ended.
Finn is still recovering from some serious lightsaber cuts to the back. Elsewhere, it appears not is all is well for the Resistance as laser fire rains down on a base where Poe Dameron is stationed and there will be a massive space battle at some point in the film
Throughout the trailer, Luke recites the same lines Ben Kenobi said during his own training. However, the short teaser ends ominously on this line; “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end."
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters December 15, 2017.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is basically an explosion of awesome
The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is amazing. I mean, did you really think they would make a crappy trailer?
Disney just dropped the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi as part of this week's Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. (You can watch a livestream of the Last Jedi panel here .) Suffice it to say that it looks amazing and delivers pretty much everything you'd want in a teaser—just a peek with extremely low spoiler levels.
First of all, our main characters are back. We catch a glimpse of Finn in some kind of medical pod, looking alive and well. Poe is in full hunky resistance fighter mode racing around with BB-8. Kylo is glowering out of the shadows like a Marilyn Manson fan circa 1995. And the Millennium Falcon is swooping around like the modded, overclocked machine that she is. There are snippets of battles and one shot of a fantastic-looking flight across the surface of a planet where giant red plumes arc out of the desert floor behind some ships. It looks very Mad Max: Fury Road, and I mean that as a high compliment.
Best of all, at least to this viewer, we see Luke doing what appear to be Yoda-esque "use the Force" exercises with Rey on the island where we left them at the end of The Force Awakens. Rey is learning to levitate little rocks and using her mind to feel the balance of light and dark in the Force. (Tearful moment as we glimpse the back of Leia's head when Rey mentions "the light.") There are also some ancient books and maps in Luke's monk cave, which is interesting—I don't recall seeing any Jedi books in paper form before, though we saw lots of augmented reality classrooms in previous films.

'The Last Jedi' poster has a striking similarity to 2 iconic 'Star Wars' posters
Disney/Lucasfilm
The INSIDER Summary:
Lucasfilm released the first teaser poster for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." It shows Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren faces split down the middle by a lightsaber held by Rey.  The artwork looks like a remix of posters for "A New Hope" and "Revenge of the Jedi," before it was renamed "The Return of the Jedi."

Disney and Lucasfilm released the first teaser poster for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," and if you're a fan of the series it looks awfully familiar. 
Disney unveiled the first poster at "Star Wars: Celebration" in Orlando, Florida Friday morning. 
Take a look at it. 
Disney/Lucasfilm
The poster shows Luke Skywalker, his nephew Kylo Ren, and Rey front and center. Luke and his nephew's faces are split down the middle by, what we presume is, Luke's original blue lightsaber that Rey acquired in "The Force Awakens."
If you started getting nostalgic vibes, it's because it feels like a partial homage to one of the posters for the original "Star Wars" film. 
Take a look:
Fox
In the poster, Luke is brandishing the lightsaber against the looming presence of Darth Vader, who we later learn is his father. Is "The Last Jedi" trailer trying to hint that Rey is the source of hope for the galaxy not only against Kylo Ren, but also Luke Skywalker? Skywalker, like Vader, is also the largest figure on the new teaser poster. Is it also suggesting a parental relationship between Skywalker and Rey? We'll have to wait to find out.
Here are the two side by side.
Fox/Lucasfilm
But that's not the only poster "The Last Jedi" resembles. It also looks like the original poster for "Star Wars: Episode VI," back when it was called "Revenge of the Jedi." The title was changed weeks before the film's release because creator George Lucas pointed out that it's against the Jedi way for them to seek revenge. It was later renamed "Return of the Jedi." 
The poster for "Revenge of the Jedi" is shrouded in red. 
20th Century Fox
The only hint of light comes from a lightsaber battle between Luke and Darth Vader, creating a purple hue, similar to the one seen at the center of "The Last Jedi" poster. Both "The Last Jedi" and "Empire Strikes Back" are the second films in "Star Wars" trilogies. 
Here are those two posters side by side. 
20th Century Fox/Disney, Lucasfilm
Finally, take a look at all three. 
Fox, Disney/Lucasfilm
Shortly after unveiling the new poster, Disney and Lucasfilm debuted the first trailer for "The Last Jedi." You can view it here . "The Last Jedi" will be in theaters this December.
A previous version of this story incorrectly stated "Revenge of the Jedi" was the original title for "Empire Strikes Back."

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer: What does it all mean?
The second movie of the original Star Wars trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back, focused on Luke Skywalker's Jedi training. 
So it makes sense that The Last Jedi, the second movie of the sequel trilogy, would focus on Luke training the still mysterious Rey.
Image: lucasfilm
"Breathe," Luke says at the start of the teaser trailer that dropped Friday, after Rey doubles over on the rocks of Ahch-To and does just that — breathing too hard, too fast. Just like Finn in The Force Awakens trailer, in fact. 
That opened with a vista of sand; this time we get an unhurried close-up of rock. Rock that Rey now has the power to lift in the air, just as Luke once made boulders float for his master, Yoda. Read more...

The trailer opens with what at first looks like a star field, but quickly reveals itself to be rocks on Ahch-To, the planet where Rey found Luke living by himself. It’s a neat visual trick.

That moment takes us right to Rey who is gasping for breath as she falls to the ground. Its reminiscent of the times in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke was training on Dagobah, out of breath from his training. Rey appears to be in the same...

Meet Rose from 'The Last Jedi,' the newest major character in the 'Star Wars' universe
Disney/Lucasfilm
“Star Wars” fans were introduced to a major new character Friday: Rose.
The newcomer, portrayed by actress Kelly Marie Tran , was introduced at the “ Star Wars: The Last Jedi ” panel at the “Star Wars” Celebration event in Orlando, Fla.
“[She] has the biggest new part in the movie and ironically is played by the smallest actor,” director Rian Johnson said while introducing the actress.
“She’s part of the Resistance, and she works in maintenance. I can’t wait for you to meet her,” said Tran, an Asian American comedian known for her digital shorts.
“She’s not a soldier,” Johnson explained. “She’s not looking to be a hero, and she gets pulled a very big way into an adventure in this movie with Finn [John Boyega].”
Judging by the prolonged hug she had with Mark Hamill, Rose and Luke Skywalker may share screen time as well.
Tran was a fan of the space saga before landing the role. She had to keep the role secret from her family.
“They didn’t know for four months,” Tran explained. “I told them I was doing an indie movie in Canada. At one point, I actually got some maple syrup so I could bring it back to them so they actually thought I was in Canada.”
It’s unclear if Tran’s humor will be reflected in character, but Johnson said he was really excited about her addition to the cast.
“She’s pretty rad,” Johnson added.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens December 15, 2017.

We need to talk about Luke's last words in the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer
Luke Skywalker is finally talking again ... and what he has to say might shock you.
The first Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer finishes with a dramatic voiceover from Mark Hamill in character as Luke. "I only know one truth," he declares. "It's time for the Jedi to end."
Say what?

If the point of that quote is to stun fans, well, mission accomplished. 
The title of the next movie has long made it clear that the Jedi are this close to disappearing altogether. But we'd always assumed the threat would come from a dark side villain.  Read more...

Will Luke Skywalker admit the Jedi are a bad idea in The Last Jedi?
In the highly-anticipated first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi , we get a lot of glimpses into the saga’s next chapter. Rey is training in the ways of the Force with Luke Skywalker on Ahch-To. General Leia is still leading the resistance. Kylo Ren is alive and angry, and the First Order, despite a crushing defeat at the end of The Force Awakens, is still terrorizing the galaxy.
Most importantly, we hear Luke speak for the first time, and he hints at a newfound relationship with the Force. For him, “it’s so much bigger” than the balance between light and darkness. Which leads to his most stunning confession:
“I only know one truth,” he says. “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
Luke’s lines speak volumes about where the franchise is...

A play-by-play of the new 'Star Wars' trailer for people who can't watch it
Here’s a description of exactly what happens.
Sometimes people with real jobs can’t watch movie trailers at work because a) they’re actually working or b) their bosses sit really close to them. If you are one of those people, don’t worry: My coworkers and I watched it at our office for you, because Star Wars is sports.
I will now describe what happens in the trailer so that you can feel like you’ve seen it, even if you haven’t. But here’s the trailer, if you’d rather just watch it. Consider this your parachute ripcord if you want to avoid the rest of this blog:
Still here? Welp, let’s enter this free-fall together, then.
I’m not going to give you any context other than to just describe what is going on so that you can really feel like you’re watching it, too.
A DESCRIPTION OF THE STAR WARS TRAILER WITH NO CONTEXT OTHER THAN TO DESCRIBE EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENS
We begin in darkness. Ominous music plays. All of a sudden, we cut to Rey, who appears to have just landed on a rock from a fall. She’s wearing gray sweater sleeves that do not appear to be connected to the sweater itself, her hair is kind of messed up (but, like, sexy messed up), and she’s breathing hard.
Now we are soaring over what looks like an ocean, approaching what I’m pretty sure is an island made of rock, because most islands are, and also Rey fell onto a rock moments ago. I took Geology 101 junior year of college to fulfill the science requirement, so I’m basically an expert: Please believe me when I tell you this rock is definitely volcanic.
Rey is standing on Volcanic Rock Island looking out at the sea.
A man’s voice kind of whispers, “What do you see?” as the camera pans over the back of an old woman or man’s head. Well, sir, now I see a smoldering pile of rubbish, because that’s what the camera zooms in on next. Now I see more darkness. Now a light is shining on a map and it looks like Mordor but I know it isn’t because this is Star Wars: The Last Jedi, not Lord of the Rings: The Fifth Million Film.
We’re back on Geology 101 Island, where Rey, in her Bill Belichick-sleeve sweater, is practicing her lightsaber skills on a cliff overlooking the sea. It looks pretty dope, if a little lonely.
“THIS CHRISTMAS” flashes onto the screen.
Now we see big-ass drones flying across a desert. They’re shooting out red stuff, so they look like they’re bleeding. Now there’s a guy in a space suit. Now there’s another guy in a space suit, and he’s running through the halls of a space castle, I’m pretty sure. Now more hovercrafts are shooting stuff.
Darth Vader and some other Bad Dudes with lightsabers show up briefly to march across more darkness. R2D2 is also there. He’s standing in front of civilization, which appears to be burning, which feels less like a Sci Fi film and more like our current global reality.
Soaring music plays, and “STAR WARS THE LAST JEDI” flashes across the screen.
The trailer ends.
I don’t have any thoughts beyond the fact that I still have no idea what to expect from this movie besides lots of darkness and drones, but here are a few key takeaways from my colleagues:
Ryan Nanni: “My prime takeaway is don’t run with a lightsaber.”
Seth Rosenthal: “But do practice your lightsaber skills on a beachside cliff.”
Ryan: “I mean, all you can take away is that if you become a Jedi, you will eventually go off the grid. You become some back-woodsy guy who’s like, ‘Yeah, I keep gold under my bed.”
Seth: “All Jedis read Infowars.”
Ryan: “Jedis don’t have checking accounts.”
Seth: “They’re like, ‘Ever heard of bitcoin?’”
Ryan: “They’re like, ‘I live by myself in some remote-ass destination.’”
And there you have it folks! A complete description and some brilliant analysis of the new Star Wars trailer! Happy Friday!

The best part of The Last Jedi trailer is that we have no idea what’s going on
The first long-awaited teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here. But while this tantalizing two minutes of footage has finally given fans the first glimpse of the upcoming sequel, it’s as deliberately vague as the various teasers for The Force Awakens were. Yes, the cinematography is beautiful. The flashes of Rey’s training are intriguing, and the few brief seconds of space battles are thrilling, but there’s almost no context for anything that happens in it.
The Star Wars franchise as a whole seems to have undergone a dramatic shift in its most recent incarnation. It’s become one of the film industry’s most secretive franchises, a move that especially stands out in today’s spoiler-hungry culture. And I think the reasoning for that...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser Trailer Breakdown

Star Wars Episode 8, otherwise known at The Last Jedi, isn't due out until December this year. But at the recently held Star Wars Celebration event in Orlando, director Rian Johnson and the film's cast revealed the very first teaser trailer for the sure to be upcoming box office juggernaut.
Sure, it's only a teaser, so there aren't major plot details revealed. But this teaser does confirm a lot of fan theories, as well as give all of us a tantalising glimpse at what's in store for Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, BB-8, Kylo Ren, and even the reclusive Luke Skywalker. It looks like Skywalker will indeed take on the role of mentor to Rey, training her on that mysterious planet that we saw in the very last shot of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But what other secrets and plot details does this teaser trailer hold? Let's dive in to find out.


Hello Rey! The first shot of this teaser shows a rock, before Rey's hand slams down on it and the camera moves up to reveal her stressed face. This is the costume that we last saw Rey in, when she arrived on the planet Ahch-To to confront the reclusive Luke Skywalker at the end of The Force Awakens. Is this the start of Rey's formal Jedi training? Luke's voiceover during the next section seems to lend credence to this fact, as he says: "Breathe. Just breathe. Now, reach out. What do you see?"


Waves are crashing on Ahch-To as Rey stands pensively looking out to the horizon. This island Luke has stationed himself on looks pretty desolate, which begs the question: where does he get all his supplies from? Is there more to this island than just being a bare rock with no trees?


Yep, Rey is totally using the Force here. Is she sitting cross-legged in the background, though? Is this within the same scene as the previous shot, and therefore could possibly be part of Luke's training?


Here, apparently, is the start of Rey's answer to Luke when he asks: "What do you see?" This is General Leia Organa, standing in front of some sort of star map on the bridge of a ship. and if you listen very, very closely to the audio at this point, you can faintly hear the line: "Help me, Obi-Wan." Is that merely a callback to the original trilogy? Or does it have some deeper meaning?


This looks to be Kylo Ren's destroyed helmet. The panels behind it hint that this location being some sort of First Order facility, but what exactly has happened here? Is this a flashback to the previous film and Starkiller Base? And there's another audio hint playing softly here, with what sounds like Obi-Wan Kenobi saying "Seduced by the dark side". Again, what's the link?


Is this some sort of bookshelf? Our guess would be that this is within Luke's home on Ahch-To. But what exactly are these tomes? And as if there weren't enough audio hints in this trailer, it sounds like Yoda's voice can also be faintly heard here saying "Train, you will."
Or, here's another bit of speculation: could this bookshelf actually be on Dagobah instead?


This book is clearly very important to Jedi lore. But what is it? Could this be the famed Journal of the Whills, an ancient book that allegedly recounts the major events in galactic history? And whose hand is that? It's clearly gloved, so it's probably neither Luke nor Rey. Is it a pilot's glove?


If you had any question as to whether The Last Jedi would see Luke train Rey, then this shot should serve as your answer. This looks like Luke training Rey as she wields a lightsaber.


This could be a shot of a brand new planet to the Star Wars universe. According to previous interviews with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, there will be a planet called Crait in the upcoming film, a mineral planet on the outskirts of the galaxy that will play a key role in the struggle between the First Order and the Resistance. The red dust kicked up by these ships (sadly, they're not podracers) seem to indicate mineral deposits, and with the preceeding shot to this show First Order AT-ATs in the distance, it seems like a fight is definitely on the cards here between the two forces.


Here's our first look at ex-Stormtrooper Finn, and it looks like he's still in pretty bad shape after the events of The Force Awakens.


Here's Poe Dameron and BB-8, running furiously through what seems to be a ship or base that's under some sort of attack.


In the next shot, it looks like our heroes are indeed in the dock of a ship in space. Things aren't looking good, however, with that explosion seemingly taking out Poe's custom paint job X-Wing.


And here's the Falcon, seemingly engaged again in combat within a planet's atmosphere. Who's flying this, we wonder? If Rey is training, could someone else be at the helm?


Is Rey running to a fight, or is this part of her training with Luke?


Fresh from committing patricide (woops, spoilers), here's Kylo Ren looking all pensive and rocking that facial scar he received from Rey in The Force Awakens.


This shot is likely a flashback scene to when the Knights of Ren destroyed Luke's Jedi training facility, which was the catalyst for him to disappear from the face of the galaxy in the first place.


Is that Captain Phasma leading those troopers? Looks like she survived that trash compactor she was supposedly placed in at the end of The Force Awakens.


These look like the new Nebulon-B escort frigates, but we're not quite sure where this battle is taking place. What is that planet in the background? UPDATE: We may have a pretty good guess as to what this planet is: could it be where the Resistance base was located in The Force Awakens?


The Resistance base was on a planet called D'Qar, and we noticed that in the last few frames of this shot, you can see an asteroid belt surrounding this green planet. And if you cast your mind back to The Force Awakens...


Here's a shot of D'Qar taken from The Force Awakens. Notice any similarities? So does this mean that The First Order manages to track down the Resistance base in The Last Jedi?


Did Luke really just say "It's time for the Jedi to end?" What happened to him during his long isolation? What type of man is he now? Also, this interior looks like the inside of a tree. Could this be definitive proof that the mysterious bookcase we looked at before is at the same place?

Star Wars Rebels Trailer Is Epic, Warwick Davis Joins The Cast
Fans of Star Wars Rebels were treated to a rollercoaster of emotions at Star Wars Celebration today, which is fitting since the convention took place in the theme park capital of the world, Orlando. After hearing that Season 4 of the series would be the final one , convention goers at the Rebels panel on Saturday morning got to check out the first trailer for the upcoming season. Check it out below.
The cast of the show, who sat in for the panel, were relatively tight-lipped about what fans can expect from the upcoming season. There we still a few pretty big announcements from the panel though.
Forest Whitaker will show up as Saw Gerrera, a character who has appeared in the animated Clone Wars television series, as well as Rogue One. His appearance will help bridge the character gap and give fans a full arc.
In addition, Warwick Davis (Return of the Jedi) will be playing Rukh. The character is from the novel Heir to the Empire as Thrawn's assassin bodyguard. You can check out what his character will look like in the image below.
Tiya Sircar, who voices Sabine Wren, revealed the possibility of a familiar face from the Star Wars universe popping in for the next season: "If there are any Mandalorian fans out there, you will be happy with specific episodes this season. You might be surprised where we go and who... I'm very scared right now.... Who might show up."
The most famous Mandalorian in Star Wars lore is Boba Fett. There was no confirmation that this was the character who will show up, but it's tough to think of another Mandalorian during the Galactic Civil War.
Season 4 of Star Wars Rebels will air on Disney XD this fall.

Star Wars: Battlefront II’s official trailer is all about the single-player campaign
Earlier this week a teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II leaked online , but here at Star Wars Celebration EA has revealed the real thing — and it includes quite a bit more than the leaked version. The centerpiece of the trailer is the single-player campaign, which focuses on an elite TIE Fighter pilot who is spurred to vengeance against the Rebellion after she sees the second Death Star blown to smithereens while on the forest moon of Endor.
It appears to be a darker take on the Star Wars mythos, putting the Empire in the heroic role most traditionally occupied by the Jedi or characters like Han Solo and Princess Leia. But the trailer also teases the expanded multiplayer version of the game, with Darth Maul, Rey, and...

The trailer debuted at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando during the Battlefront II panel, which featured representatives from Criterion, Motive Studios, DICE, and Lucasfilm. As shown in the trailer, the game features heroes and situations from all eras of Star Wars canon.
Like the leaked version, the full trailer is narrated by Imperial commander Iden Versio and includes Darth Maul, Yoda, Luke, Rey, and Kylo Ren. This full version adds more action and more insight into Versio's character.
Star Wars Battlefront II is launching on November 17 for PS4 , PC , and Xbox One .

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Multiplayer Preview
Where Battlefront II’s new single player mode is attempting something different (both the mode and its content), the focus for the returning multiplayer component seems to be more about refinement. The last Battlefront got a lot right, but it also occasionally felt like gorgeous blueprints for something better to come. This could well be it.
Burnout creators Criterion have stepped in to take on the game’s vehicles and head up a much-requested new feature; a full space combat mode. While the first game’s baby steps into providing material from films other than the original trilogy have become a bold jump, this will be the first Star Wars game to include material from all three film eras (although Gungans have been studiously absent from the footage we’ve seen - make of that what you will).

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Story Will Let You Play As Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren
Star Wars Battlefront II 's single-player campaign will include missions where you can play as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren, among other heroes.
During the official Battlefront II panel at Star Wars Celebration, representatives of the teams working on the game confirmed that, while the story stars a new character, it will also include parts from other perspectives.
The new character, Iden Versio, is an Imperial commander, and the story is mainly told from the side of the Empire. But Game Director Mark Thompson of Motive Studios mentioned that switching perspectives from protagonist to antagonist is a staple of Star Wars storytelling as well as what makes Battlefront stand out, so the teams worked to include missions starring established heroes. It's currently not clear how many of these missions will be in the game.
