"I mean, [the news is] coming from the EA Star Wars Twitter handle, so it's certainly part of the plan, but I don't know whether it's implicitly referencing previous comments they made after our project was killed?" A slip of the tongue from General Grievous voice actor and Skywalker Sound editor Matthew Wood, along with sources for Eurogamer, indicate that a new game is indeed in development.

Amy Hennig is happy for Respawn, but she thought EA's now infamous tweet on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a bit unusual. The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal (Narcos) in the title role as a lone Mandalorian gunfighter, alongside Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Emily Swallow (Supernatural), Carl Weathers (Predator), Omid Abtahi (American Gods), Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man), and Nick Nolte (Warrior).

"There's a lot of conflict in this movie, but I think where it goes and the resolution is very hopeful", she added. Thousands of Star Wars fans gathered at McCormick Place in the Windy City to courageous the wind one day and the snow another (we're going to call that "Hoth Appreciation Day"). Then Rian Johnson arrived and wrote The Last Jedi entirely. Star Wars, not only do we cut between villains but we also cut between multiple protagonists.

We have until late this year to see the fruits of their labor with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but if there's any team under the EA banner that I trust to finally put Star Wars back on track, it's Respawn.

Kennedy hinted that the new stories might actually be taking place set in the distant past in the Star Wars universe, "Yes, absolutely". Do you think this is a good strategy to map out the saga instead of ruing what appears to be a patched together trilogy?
