You have to hand it to Disney. After Activision's $5.9 billion purchase of the developers behind Candy Crush
, Disney looks like they acquired the entirity of the Star Wars
franchise for little more than a song. It should come as no surprise then, with the imminent release of Star Wars Battlefront
and the movie release soon to follow, that Star Wars
fever is everywhere.
To add to the hype, a new live-action trailer has been released for the game. No, all those people disappearing doesn't mean the rapture is upon us. The vanishing acts are a reference to a certain Jedi's death in the films.
Star Wars Battlefront
brings the force to consoles once again on November 17th in the US, the 19th in Australia, and the 20th everywhere else.
