News / Star Wars The force Awakens
Today, CBR News has the exclusive first look at a new planet you'll get to explore in Disney Infinity 3.0's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" playset (and thus see in the movie): Takodana. Like previous "Star Wars" playsets, Takodana will let you enjoy the adventure of the new movie with some cartoony hack & slash action. Along with an exclusive shot from the game, we also have a previously unseen piece of concept art offering a bit of insight into how the game's developers create its settings.
SPOILER-FREE REVIEW: "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" Exceeds the Hype.....
According to the playset's official description, "Takodana is a forest planet. It's home to a band of smugglers and traders. The players quickly discover a great way to get what they need is to help the locals solve their unique problems not all of which are on the up and up."
Not surprisingly, the "Force Awakens" playset is not the only place where you can explore Takodana. The planet also appears in the mobile strategy game "Star Wars: Commander," though that game is actually set between the events of "A New Hope" and "The Empire Strikes Back," and not during the time of "The Force Awakens." It's also the setting for Landry Q. Walker's ebook story "The Face of Evil," which will be included in the upcoming anthology "Tales from a Galaxy Far, Far Away," which will be published on April 5, 2016. Though we wouldn't be surprised if it was also one of the battlefields added to the "Star Wars: Battlefront" next year.
The "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" playset for "Disney Infinity 3.0" arrives today on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, WiiU, iOS, Android, and Apple TV....
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” director J.J. Abrams revealed that there would be no new footage of the upcoming “Star Wars” installment at D23, though we should expect a new trailer in the fall, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“It is true, we are showing no footage, behind the scenes or otherwise,” Abrams explained. “In the fall, there’ll be a trailer.”
“We’re thrilled to go to D23 and meet the fans, but it’s a tricky thing to try and rush [footage] for a convention or preexisting event that would, of course, be fun to show something at,” he added.
Directed by J.J. Abrams, the film stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong’o and Gwendoline Christie.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens Dec. 18.
