Star Wars is massive, and with damn good reason so it so should be no suprise that the first trailer for this years release has everyone talking. And now its here for you. Continue reading
This weeks recommendation is one of the most highly anticipated games of the Winter season, in the form of DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront. This game is a massive online multi-player shooter set in the Star Wars universe around the time of the original Rebellion, and not only does the game look and feel like Star Wars but its so much fun its difficult to log off once you get on.
This may seem like an odd recommendation given the length of time these have been out and that some of the stories have been done in the ‘Clone Wars’ animated series, however I still feel that the original trade paperbacks based between Episode II and Episode III contain some great stories and some great character work in a brilliant world.

Disney have officially announced that everyone’s favourite movie droid will indeed be back for the forthcoming Star Wars movie. This is a great move as ever since R2D2 appeared in the first scenes of 1977’s Star Wars: A New Hope he has long been a fan favourite and i have to say I couldn’t see the series without him- you could even argue that the original trilogy is basically a tale of two droids, R2D2 and C3PO.
The folks over at Jedi News have been invited to attend the Disney brand licensing for Star Wars within Europe, and have come away with some great news.
Not only have they got the release date for TV specials, but also the release date for Episode VII
So as you can see the J.J.Abrams movie will get its release in the summer of 2015, and at the end of 2014 we get a Darth Vader special which I expect to be a nice lead in to the new animated show Rebels.
Bring on 2015 is all I have to say
Get your first look at the ‘Inquisitor’ in the video below who will be the main villain in the upcoming series. He is tasked by Darth Vader himself to hunt down and destroy all remaining Jedi.
I have to say he looks pretty menacing, so I’m hoping for good things- just like we got from Asajj Ventruss in the ‘Clone Wars’
The new animated series from Lucasfilm, is set between Episode III and Episode IV and takes place during a time where the empire is beginning to cement its power across the universe and the rebellion is beginning to form. The first trailer for this has arrived, and its clear from the outset that the influence of original star wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie’s work has been as big an influence as we heard it would be.
The series is set to début on Disney XD in 2014- and will hopefully be as entertaining as the Clone Wars series has been. No information is available yet to the characters that will appear in rebels- but im hoping for a few small references to some of the characters that appear in the later movies, Han Solo anyone?!
This isn’t the only Star Wars television news recently– but it is the only concrete news and the only teaser we’ve seen so far. And the teaser does promise us the rise of the the Jedi- so if that doesn’t sound exciting I don’t know what does.
