Daily Video Clip #2

Today's second new video is the Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Someone You Can Count On - The Lost Commanders Preview. The critically-acclaimed animated series, Star Wars Rebels, is set to debut new episodes starting Wednesday, October 14 (9:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.

In Star Wars Rebels Season Two, past lives will be revealed and the destiny of our heroes will be changed forever. The transformative new season resumes with Imperial oppression on Lothal growing stronger and the Rebels seeking out new allies and additional resources to sustain their fight against the evil Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost enlists some old friends: ex-clone troopers who fought in the Clone Wars. As the Rebels grow in number, so do their enemies. New Inquisitors are dispatched by Darth Vader and sent to crush any threat of rebellion. Through dangerous rescue missions, thrilling space chases, and spectacular lightsaber duels — the bond of our Rebel crew will be put to the test like never before.

Before watching Season 2, be sure to get caught up on all the events that brought the galaxy to the brink of civil war. Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One is available on Blu-Ray and DVD next Tuesday, September 1 and delivers all 15 action-packed episodes plus never-before-seen bonus material including cast and crew interviews revealing the magic behind the making of the hit series.

Battlefront's Battle of Jakku

EA's Star Wars Site has provided some information about the Battle of Jakku. As debris from battles above shower the desert ground, the feeling of chaos is intensifying. A Star Destroyer has just crash-landed and some of its engines are still smoking. The battle has just begun…

This is the first visual glimpse of The Battle of Jakku, coming to Star Wars Battlefront on December 1st, 2015, for all who pre-order, and a week later for all other game holders. The Battle of Jakku was the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet.

Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

A Star Destroyer has crash landed, and from the belly of this battle-scarred metal giant, a myriad of Imperial ground troops have evacuated and engaged with Rebel troops, also strangers to this desert planet.

Star Wars Battlefront's Boba Fett

According to the Electronic Arts Star Wars page, gamers will enjoy playing Boba Fett! All fans of Star Wars - not just DICE developers - have a special place in their hearts for this one particular bounty hunter. As one of the iconic villains playable in Star Wars Battlefront, Boba Fett is designed to be a dreaded force in battle. His mobility and deadly cache of weaponry should send you fleeing if you see him on the battlefront. Conversely, the chance to walk in his boots and try out his arsenal is the fulfillment of a quintessential Star Wars fantasy.

His jetpack lets Boba Fett fly around the maps, making him extremely mobile and gives him the ability to take shots from the air with his EE-3 Carbine Rifle. He comes equipped with two wrist launchers, one armed with a rocket – perfect for long-range attacks – and one with a Flame Blast attack for when things get up close and personal.

Depending on your preferred play style, Boba Fett may very well become one of your favorite Hero/Villain characters. If you favor charging with melee attacks, characters like Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader might be better. However, if you want to move around swiftly, keeping some distance from your enemies, Boba Fett is for you. Mastering Boba Fett’s airborne abilities will allow you to escape death above the ground battle on vertical levels such as the tree huts on the forest moon of Endor.

Your chance to try out your tactics with Boba Fett comes November 17 when the Heroes and Villains experience of Star Wars Battlefront arrives. More info on other characters is coming – so stay tuned.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 Preview at New York Comic-Con

The Official Star Wars Site has announced that on October 8, attendees will receive an exclusive sneak peek of what’s to come in the second season of Star Wars Rebels, along with a panel featuring special guests and a preview of two new episodes from the series.

As the second season of Star Wars Rebels opens, the crew of the Ghost is now a very real threat to the Empire. That’s bad news, because Darth Vader’s been assigned with the task of mopping them up. Undeterred, the rebels seek out old friends and new allies, hoping to rally the formidable alliance which began to crystallize at the end of Season One. Vader will dispatch new agents to counter their growing coalition, but the Sith Lord’s battle with the Rebels could be more personal than anyone realized.

The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes on the same stage from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolffe — three clones from the hit animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from the show, Ahsoka Tano, who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of Season One.

Star Wars Rebels returns with new episodes this fall on Disney XD.

Colin Trevorrow To Direct Star Wars: Episode IX

The Official Star Wars Site has announced that Colin Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX, which is set for release in 2019.

While production won’t begin for a few years, Trevorrow is heading to Lucasfilm this year to begin working with artists and his fellow Star Wars directors. “Colin is someone I’ve been interested in working with ever since I saw Safety Not Guaranteed,” says Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy. “The power of that film paired with the enormous success of Jurassic World speaks volumes about his abilities both as a storyteller and skilled filmmaker. We are thrilled to have such an incredible talent as Colin join our family and step into the Star Wars universe.”

Trevorrow states “This is not a job or an assignment. It is a seat at a campfire, surrounded by an extraordinary group of storytellers, filmmakers, artists and craftspeople. We’ve been charged with telling new stories for a younger generation because they deserve what we all had—a mythology to call their own. We will do this by channeling something George Lucas instilled in all of us: boundless creativity, pure invention and hope.”

Star Wars: Episode IX will conclude the third trilogy of Star Wars movies that begins with Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.

Rogue One Cast Announced

“ROGUE ONE”—THE DARING MISSION HAS BEGUN

Resistance Fighters Unite to Steal Plans for Death Star

The Official Star Wars Site has announced that their first film in the new standalone Star Wars stories series, “Rogue One,” has begun principal photography. Gareth Edwards (“Godzilla,” “Monsters”) is directing “Rogue One,” which tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. The film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and is slated for a December 16, 2016 release.

The filmmakers have assembled a stellar cast, including Felicity Jones, nominated for an Academy Award® for her leading role in “The Theory of Everything”; Diego Luna, who was featured in 2008’s Oscar®-winning “Milk” and the critically acclaimed “Killing Them Softly”; Ben Mendelsohn, recently nominated for an Emmy® for his leading role in “Bloodline” and co-starring in the upcoming “Mississippi Grind”; Donnie Yen, Hong Kong action star and martial artist who starred in “Ip Man” and “Blade II”; Jiang Wen, who co-wrote, produced , directed and starred in the award-winning “Let the Bullets Fly” and “Devils on the Doorstep”; Forest Whitaker, recently featured in the critically-acclaimed Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” and winner of an Academy Award® for his leading role in 2006’s “The Last King of Scotland; Mads Mikkelsen, who starred in “The Hunt” and was the memorable villain from 2006’s “Casino Royale”; Alan Tudyk, who plays a performance-capture character in “Rogue One,” stars in the soon-to-be-released “Con Man” series and “Trumbo,” which releases this November; and Riz Ahmed, who was recently featured in “Nightcrawler” and starred in the BAFTA-winning film “Four Lions.”

“‘Rogue One’ takes place before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope and will be a departure from the saga films but have elements that are familiar to the Star Wars universe,” says Kathleen Kennedy. “It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential Star Wars feel that fans have come to know. Gareth is such an innovative director and I’m so excited to be working with him and the extraordinary ensemble cast he’s selected for ‘Rogue One.’”

Veteran ILM visual effects supervisor John Knoll, who shares a long history with the Star Wars movies, dating back to the mid-1990s, originated the idea for the movie. Allison Shearmur (“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Cinderella”), John Knoll, Simon Emanuel (“The Dark Knight Rises,” “Fast & Furious 6”) and Jason McGatlin (“Tintin,” “War of the Worlds”) are executive producers. Kiri Hart and John Swartz (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) are co-producers.

To create the lived-in, realistic feel of “Rogue One,” Edwards chose Greig Fraser (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “Foxcatcher”) to be his director of photography and Neil Corbould (“Black Hawk Down,” “Gladiator,” “Saving Private Ryan”) to be his special effects supervisor. Star Wars and Lucasfilm veteran Doug Chiang (“Star Wars: Episodes I-II,” “Forrest Gump”) and Neil Lamont (supervising art director for the “Harry Potter” series, “Edge of Tomorrow”) will be the production designers. Additional crew members will include stunt coordinator Rob Inch (“World War Z,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”), creature effects supervisor Neal Scanlan (“Prometheus”) and co-costume designers Dave Crossman (costume supervisor for the “Harry Potter” series, “Saving Private Ryan”) and Glyn Dillon (costume concept artist for “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Jupiter Ascending”).

I am loving this new "Golden Age of Star Wars!"

Supremacy Gameplay Mode For Star Wars Battlefront

The EA Star Wars site has announced the latest new mode for the game! The multiplayer modes of Star Wars Battlefront span many different types of experiences. From close-quarter battle situations, to all-out clashes on huge maps with ground troops, vehicles, Heroes and Villains joining the fight, you’ll find the Supremacy mode in the latter category.

Supremacy centers on five control points scattered across the map. The objective is gaining control of all five, or the majority of them, before the 10 minute round is over. Each team starts the match controlling two of these control points, initially fighting for control of the fifth one in the center. After this is determined, the control points need to be claimed in a set order. This means the action will be taking place on two control points at a time – one for each team.

An intense mode for players that know their way around the battlefront, Supremacy is ideal for those craving all-out multiplayer action. According to Lead Level Designer Dennis Brännvall, this action will be both immediate and intense.

“When you spawn into Supremacy, you don’t have to move far to see a lot of friends – and enemies. You’re thrown into a massive frontline, where your screen is filled with adversaries: infantry, Heroes, Walkers, and starfighters. You can prepare for very heavy and focused Star Wars action,” Brännvall says.

If you’re the defending type, Supremacy will guarantee many enemies assaulting your control point. If you’re an attacking player, you'll surely find them trying to defend their control point from capture, ensuring constant frontline action.

Almost all vehicles in Star Wars Battlefront will take part in the fight, so keep an eye on the sky for TIE fighters and X-wings soaring through the sky to assist the quest for supremacy at each location. Heroes and Villains will also join the fight, and their unique abilities will help both sides in different ways.

“Using a character like Darth Vader to secure control points is great, as he can take increased damage before going down. Luke Skywalker and Boba Fett are great for moving swiftly between attacking and defensive positions, and giving you the edge against opponents in battle,” Brännvall explains.

As for map size, Supremacy will offer the largest fighting grounds that Star Wars Battlefront has to offer; the vast maps, alongside the ability to capture key areas, may seem similar to DICE game fans.  Brännvall, as member of the Battlefield team, can confirm the similarities between Supremacy and the signature mode from the game, Conquest.

“Supremacy is a game mode that will excite fans of the Conquest mode from Battlefield. That said, we’ve made several tweaks to improve the formula. You will always spawn close to the action when you enter Supremacy, so you’ll never feel isolated from the fight. By focusing on one key point at a time, players not playing the objective and camping on a hill somewhere will be a rare sight.”

With the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire clashing, the vehicular action around you, and iconic Star Wars characters joining the fight, Supremacy is a multiplayer mode that will deliver exhilarating battles for players.

I know I can't wait to play this new version of my favorite game!
