Star Wars Battlefront

This weekend’s Star Wars Celebration held this year in Anaheim has seen a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which we revealed here at borg.com earlier this week, and today new previews just dropped for the coming season of Star Wars Rebels and a new video game, Star Wars Battlefront.  It makes sense that Disney and its new company Lucasfilm would be pulling out all the stops in this banner year for the franchise.

Since Disney took over the Star Wars brand, we’ve seen new canon universe novels (Star Wars: A New Dawn, previewed here, Tarkin, previewed here, and Star Wars: Heir to the Jedi, previewed here, thanks to advance copies from LucasBooks).  And we saw a record for bestselling comic book release with this year’s new Marvel Comics Star Wars monthly, discussed here.  We can only expect more from now until the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December.

Stop everything.  It’s another <<Day a New Star Wars Trailer is Released>>. 

The rest of the Internet can shut down for the rest of the day.  Nothing else matters.  Move along.  Or, that is, watch the trailer and then move along.  But we don’t think you can watch it only once.

And look who is featured in this second of the previews released by Abrams & Co. so far.  Luke and R2-D2, Chewy and Han.  And all those new guys from the first preview.

A chrome stormtrooper?  Neat.  A downed Star Destroyer?  Also neat.  White TIE Fighters?  Oh, boy.

What circumstances would result in someone holding Darth Vader’s charred helmet?  Is some part of Anakin Skywalker still alive?  Do the Sith have a katra?  Did Abrams forget he was making a Star Wars, not a Star Trek, flick?

Questions, questions.  Just watch the trailer over and over after the break, and check out the new poster art floating around Twitter today, as well as how to see live streaming of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim…
