If the game's panel at Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 didn't give you enough information, Respawn Entertainment video game director Stig Asmussen sat down with website GamingBolt and gave a little more information. While last week fans were high on the anticipation of Star Wars 9-which we now know is titled Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker-the excitement was undercut a tad when Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that after Skywalker, the films will be taking a bit of a hiatus.

EA has multiple teams of developers that have worked on Star Wars games before in the past, and they were passed over in favor of Respawn. She adds, "We're not just looking at what the next three movies might be, or talking about this in terms of a trilogy".

"And unanimously, my team hands down, everybody was interested in working on a Star Wars, even though we were really interested in the other game that we were working on, we saw this as an opportunity".

Murray works closely with tourism organisation Explore Inishowen and saw the name change as the flawless way to promote the region's ties to the franchise.

Abrams, who is coming back to the helm after directing "The Force Awakens" four years ago, said he nearly didn't sign on board to oversee the last film. That's the Star Wars DNA, right?

What a difference a letter makes: with one small change, a Co Donegal road has been renamed in honour of one of Star Wars' most famous characters. "There had been a number of scenes, we filmed and had not used for 'Episode VII.' I compiled the footage and watched it".

Further verifying this statement, however, is Eurogamer who has "heard word of the title from sources close to its production", and that it is "an ambitious project". And then you look at Rogue One, the animated show Rebels, those are ensemble stories. I think that that's absolutely on the horizon.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an action-adventure game set after Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith™. We all just loved her.
