Daily Video Clip #2

Today's second new video clip announces that Star Wars Battlefront Playable First on Xbox One. Star Wars Battlefront is widely considered to be one of the most anticipated games of 2015. With that in mind, EA may have made one of the most compelling cases for picking up an EA Access subscription yet, as head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, confirmed that the shooter will be made available to EA Access subscribers on Xbox One before launch. 

Players can pick up an EA Access subscription for $4.99 a month or $29.99 for the entire year. In addition to giving players the ability to play games from EA before launch, the subscription also grants a 10% discount on all digital purchases of EA games on Xbox One, as well as unlimited access to several games in EA's Vault. As of now, the service is exclusive to Xbox One.

Star Wars Battlefront Will Offer The Force Awakens’ Battle of Jakku

We begin Day 2 of Star Wars Celebration with a bang! /Film has a story that excites me as an avid Battlefront gamer. "The rumors about a link between EA’s game Star Wars Battlefront and Star Wars The Force Awakens are true. At Celebration, it was revealed that three weeks after the game’s November 17 release, they’ll offer a free piece of downloadable content called the Battle of Jakku, the desert planet in the latest Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer. This will help explain how and why all those X-Wing Fighters and Star Destroyers are abandoned on Jakku.

Scenes like that will be explained by this DLC.

The Battle of Jakku will be available on December 8, unless you pre-order the game, then you can get it December 1.

Like most games these days, Battlefront is is broken down into multiple modes, but primarily it’s an opportunity to create your Star Wars battle fantasy. So, for example, when we think of speeder bikes, you think of Endor in Return of the Jedi right? Well, in Battlefront, you can play as Boba Fett, on a speeder bike, on Hoth if you want. It’s totally customizable and fun like that.

But will your actions change scenes you see in The Force Awakens? Probably not. What will be cool though is Battlefront is a game that encourages exploration. In theory, that means you’ll be able to uncover some secrets about the film, or at least learn more about the world where Kira lives.

Another note, the shots above in the trailer look like the Imperial shuttles have been there for years. So, while the Battle of Jakku will be a prequel to The Force Awakens, it’s probably closer to the events of Return of the Jedi rather than The Force Awakens.

Star Wars The Force Awakens opens December 18. Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17 and be available for PlayStation 4 and XBox One.

Here’s the official info on the Battle of Jakku:

Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. 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. Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one-week early starting on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free content on December 8, 2015."

SWCA Exclusives

Joe Corroney and Brian Miller sent me an email about their great pieces of art that will be available at Star Wars Celebration. Be sure to check it out at booth #1111 during the event!

Hundreds of artists were considered for the Star Wars Celebration Art Show, in the end Lucasfilm and the panel of judges selected 35 to create exclusive new illustrations for the event. Some of the artist chosen are known for their work in film and special effects while a handful like Alex Ross, Cat Staggs, Katie Cook, & Ken Lashley are recognizable for their work in comic books. Two such artists are the duo of Joe Corroney and Hi-Fi color design's Brian Miller who frequently collaborate on cover illustrations for sci-fi comics like X-Files, Ghostbusters, Star Trek, and Doctor Who as well as Star Wars art for book covers, Star Wars Insider magazine, Topps trading cards, and Star Wars collectables for ACME Archives.

Joe Corroney and Brian Miller each chose to represent the Dark Side of the Force and more specifically Darth Vader in their Star Wars celebration exclusive illustrations titled, "The Inquisitor's Gift" & "Remember the Death Star". Joe had this to say about his choice of characters, "Darth Vader is my favorite Star Wars character and hands down my favorite character to illustrate. But I hadn't yet done a print for Celebration that just focused on him".

When asked about his artwork for Celebration Miller says, "I wanted Darth Vader to be larger than life and more of an iconic representation of the Empire. In a similar vein to how Uncle Sam was portrayed in many propaganda posters. They type and  design elements were chosen to serve as a powerful recruitment tool for the Empire".

Both artists will be attending Star Wars Celebration Anaheim April 16-19 where their artwork will be featured in the Celebration Art Show. A limited number of official Lucasfilm prints of the artwork are being made available exclusively for attendees as well. "Even though I've been working as a comic book and sci-fi illustrator with Joe Corroney for over a decade this will be my very first Celebration," comments Miller, "I feel like the young Padawan to Joe Corroney's Jedi Master and I look forward to spending time  our Celebration booth meeting fans & collectors". Joe Corroney adds, "There's definitely a camaraderie among all of us Star Wars artists. it's great fun to catch up with each other at these events".

As officially licensed Lucasfilm artists Joe Corroney and Brian Miller also participate in Celebration programming for the fans. Joe will be sketching Star Wars characters at Booth #1111 and Brian will be participating in the Star Wars Kids art program. Kids can learn how to draw droids with Brian during the "Drawing R2-D2 and Friends" event on Sunday.

New Star Wars Fanfare

A new Lucasfilm fanfare has replaced the 20th Century Fox fanfare. When Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, 20th Century Fox retained the distribution rights to the original Star Wars that we have all learned to know as Episode IV: A New Hope. I am guessing this fanfare will also be used for the new Star Wars movies moving forward. I am not all that impressed really. The Fox fanfare is hard to replace for an old Star Wars fan.

The Clone Wars “Bad Batch” 4-Episode Arc At Celebration

The Official Star Wars Site has announced that we will see more of the unfinished Star Wars: The Clone Wars series! See the return of Echo in these previously unreleased episodes!

In a special March 2014 StarWars.com blog post celebrating the Netflix release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions, series supervising director Dave Filoni thanked fans for their continued support, and shared his own sketches and concept art. He ended his post with one teaser image and note, addressing one of the show’s unanswered questions: “Yes, Echo is alive.” Finally, fans of the clone trooper will find out how and why.

StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that a previously unreleased four-episode story reel, “Bad Batch,” telling the story of how Captain Rex and company rescued Echo, will screen exclusively at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim. The unfinished episodes (similar to the Utapau arc that appeared on StarWars.com) feature complete, final voice performances, specifically by Dee Bradley Baker, who voices the elite clones of “Bad Batch” group.

The screening will take place at the Digital Stage on Friday, April 17, at noon. A Q&A with Filoni, Baker, and writers Brent Friedman and Matt Michnovetz will follow. So mark your calendars, and prepare to welcome back one of the clone army’s greatest warriors!

I can't wait for those of us that can't attend Star Wars Celebration to be able to see these great new stories. Patience we must have.
