The Last Jedi Season Is Coming - Electronic Arts

The Last Jedi Season Is Coming - Electronic Arts

Disney has just closed a deal with director Rian Johnson to develop a new "Star Wars" trilogy, and it is planning a live-action "Star Wars" TV series to air on its entertainment streaming service that is expected to launch by the end of 2019.

This is huge news for Star Wars fans, and should generate additional interest in "The Last Jedi" since the film clearly pleased Lucasfilm enough to give them the confidence to entrust the biggest Star Wars cinematic universe since this three-episode Skywalker saga wrap to Johnson.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is expanding a galaxy far, far away. He's the only writer credited for The Last Jedi, and that's the first time that's happened with a Star Wars movie since creator George Lucas did it with the prequels.

There are no release dates for the new trilogy yet, but we'll keep you posted.

Players will have to choose between the First Order and The Resistance, and will unlock special challenges tailored to those factions.

As DICE announced your choice will allow you to take part in "special challenges that will grant your faction specific rewards". For now, read MMORPG.com's preview of the new DLC content HERE. Also, a new hero ship will be playable: Tallie Lintra's RZ-2 A-wing from The Last Jedi.

Behind the lens, Johnson will reteam with Ram Bergman (Looper, Brick) and Lucasfilm brass Kathleen Kennedy, who recently confirmed that the Powers That Be have been planning for the next decade of Star Wars beyond 2017. "Star Wars is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it".

We're excited for you to get your hands on Star Wars™ Battlefront™ II, and even more excited to continue bringing new Star Wars experiences to you.
