Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the forthcoming action adventure game from Respawn Entertainment, will be revealed at Star Wars Celebration this April, Lucasfilm announced Wednesday.

The game will be shown off during a special panel on Saturday, April 13. (Star Wars Celebration 2019 runs April 11-15 in Chicago.) The game’s story involves “a Padawan who survived Order 66,” and it is set “in the time after the fall of the Jedi Order.”

That, of course, references the events of 2005’s Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, when Emperor Palpatine exterminated the Jedi. So this game will be set in an era explored by films such as Rogue One and video games like 2008’s Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and its 2010 sequel.

The official Star Wars Twitter account also announced Wednesday that principal photography on The Mandalorian, the live-action TV series coming to the Disney Plus streaming service, has been completed. More on that may be seen in the video embedded below.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was first announced in 2016, and formally named at E3 2018. The game is part of Electronic Arts’ long-term exclusive deal with Disney and Lucasfilm to make Star Wars video games, although in January EA canceled an untitled open-world game that Visceral Games had started back in 2013.
