3 Planets We’re Expecting to See in The Last Jedi

We’ve finally stopped watching the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi on a loop. The trailer – released to satisfy fans’ eager excitement until the December 2017 release date and ticket sales – threw up more questions than it answered. From the circumstances surrounding Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa’s exit following the actress’s untimely death in late 2016 to the fate of Kylo Ren. While some fans were also quick to point out that the poster design resembled the face of Star Wars legendary villain Darth Vader. But we have one other burning question: which planets are we likely to see in the film and how will this impact the spate of games that follow it? One of the most exciting aspects of Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefront 2 is the variety of locations from the Star Wars canon that allow us a new planet to explore and battle…

The moment Star Wars fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. Fans have been itching for and asking for a film about Obi-Wan Kenobi and now it’s officially been released. We now have confirmation that an Obi-Wan Kenobi film is in the works. It’s at the planning stages and Stephen Daldry is negotiating the project.

The new films are operating on the same level of secrecy and this means it’s difficult to find anything but rumors when it comes to the making of the films. However, since rumors abound and leaks hit Episode 7 just months before it was revealed, some wonder if Disney is operating a campaign to be one step ahead of potential leaks. So some question the number of leaks coming out now and the potential that Disney could be running their own smoke and mirrors campaign to throw people off track. One of…
