Today’s D23 Expo has already unleashed a peek behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and now we’ve got a closer look at another highly-anticipated project from a galaxy far, far away: Star Wars Battlefront II.
This “Behind the Story” video is exactly that, fleshing out how it will approach the world of Star Wars from an Imperial perspective. Lucasfilm creative executive Steve Blank explains, “The story of Battlefront II is absolutely an essential story... and we’re going to see it from this Imperial point of view. [Main character] Iden is presented with an extreme challenge: the destruction of the Death Star II and the death of the Emperor. What sort of choices would somebody in that situation have to make about who they are, and what the galaxy was going to become?”
Star Wars Battlefront II will be out November 17.
