New Star Wars Trilogy Being Directed by Rian Johnson

Lucasfilm has scheduled a brand new "Star Wars" trilogy.

On December 13 - two days before the movie release - business really starts to pick up with the launch of free downloadable content.

Single-player can only be enjoyed to a certain point, however, the title's multiplayer modes are fully available. Specifically, you will have to make the monumental decision between aligning with the First Order or Resistance.

Things kick into high gear on December 13: Your favorite stormtrooper-turned-hero Finn joins the fight for the Resistance and Captain Phasma steps on to the Battlefront for the First Order. Captain Phasma and Finn will be joining the fight, and whichever faction completes the most challenges that week will receive a special reward for either Finn or Phasma.

The 13th will also bring new maps and vehicles tied into The Last Jedi.

Star Wars Battlefront II storms onto PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 17.

No word yet on when the films would be released, but it'll be after "The Last Jedi" (Dec. 15), "Solo: A Star Wars Story" (May 25, 2018) and, most likely, Episode IX (Dec. 20, 2019).

In Kennedy's interview with "The Star Wars Show", she proudly said that Johnson has done an "exceptional job" in handling the new characters together with the iconic ones that will definitely move fans to the "next place".

Called The Last Jedi Season, this first season of additional content for Star Wars Battlefront 2 will begin on December 5th and carry throughout the entire month.

Throughout December, faction choices will continue to matter, and players will be able to see each faction's progress reflected in-game.

But Johnson proved to be a hit with just about everyone involved with The Last Jedi, and the cast gave him high praise during last spring's Star Wars Celebration.

As mentioned above, Battlefront 2's Season 1 will run through December 29 and will include both daily and weekly challenges.
