A new Lego Star Wars game is reportedly on the way

No Caption Provided

The last game in the series to release was Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The news hit the interwebs days after JJ Abrams admitted there wasn't an over-arching storyline planned for the sequel trilogy and that each director was given the freedom to take their episode in whichever direction they saw fit. The video was sadly entirely CG, with no actual gameplay being shown off, but it was still a confident step forward and - along with the interviews with Respawn developers - it's painted a pretty clear picture of what the game is going to be. 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.

Star Wars had previously announced that Rian Johnson would be working on his own trilogy in the Star Wars universe while Benioff and Weiss would be working on their own Star Wars films.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy also spoke to "GMA" and called "The Rise of Skywalker" the "epitome of good versus evil". She adds, "We're not just looking at what the next three movies might be, or talking about this in terms of a trilogy".

She also acknowledges the change of management in EA following her departure, saying "Both Patrick Soderlund and Jade Raymond have left in the meantime, and Laura Miele, who was the franchise general manager for Star Wars when I joined, is now in Patrick's role". "I didn't know I was going to want to help bring to a close this thing we started with 'Episode VII'".

Firefighters believe the blaze is "potentially linked" to the renovation work of the building, reports Le Figaro . US President Donald Trump has suggested "perhaps flying water tankers" to extinguish the fire.

So what does the next phase of Star Wars look like?

Kennedy would go on to confirm that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson and Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be central to this process, "As they finish Game of Thrones, they're going to segue into Star Wars. We're looking at: What is the next decade of storytelling?"

Speaking about that Palpatine surprise, Kennedy told Polowy that the Emperor's inclusion had been in the works for "a very long time". Electronic Arts as a company is generally known for packaging games with post-release monetisation, be it multiplayer, season passes, DLC, or loot boxes, but the publisher has been actively trying to spread the message that these usual aspects of its games will not be present in Fallen Order. We assume Luke is a force ghost, but one can never be sure with "Star Wars". That's the Star Wars DNA, right?

"I think that that's absolutely on the horizon", said Kennedy.
