Lucasfilm announced today that fans will get a first look at EA and Respawn’s Star Wars: Fallen Order on Saturday, April 13 at Star Wars Celebration Chicago. In Fallen Order, gamers will meet a Padawan who survived Order 66 and explore the galaxy in the time after the fall of the Jedi Order. The discussion will feature never-before-released details ahead of the game’s fall 2019 release.
Beyond this debut, fans can invade the exhibition floor to try out other games including: Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, a game of strategy, skill, and squad building; and Star Wars Pinball, Zen Studios’ innovatively immersive take on an arcade classic.
And Star Wars: The Old Republic, one of the longest running games set a thousand years before the rise of the Empire, will be hosting a special event with more details to come.
Lucasfilm also announced that Jon Favreau’s live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian has wrapped principal photography. The Mandalorian is written and executive produced by Favreau, with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) directing the first episode and serving as executive producer alongside Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson.
Additional episodic directors include Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
Ludwig Göransson, an acclaimed composer and record producer, will write the score for The Mandalorian. Göransson has composed soundtracks for films like Black Panther, Creed, Creed II, Venom, and Fruitvale Station, as well as TV series like Community and New Girl.
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).
The highly-anticipated series will be exclusive to Disney+, The Walt Disney Company’s upcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service, which is set to launch in the U.S. in late 2019.
