Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order Art Leaked Before Celebration Panel
Size matters not.
Respawn has taken the wraps off of its next game, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, at a panel during the annual Star Wars Celebration. We received lots of new details from the first story trailer and panel. , but not before an online retailer inadvertently put up a teaser image with key art.
The online store Amazon mistakenly put up a listing for a commemorative t-shirt, which showed the piece of artwork. It's been since removed, but not before fans secured the image for posterity. It shows a Jedi wielding a blue lightsaber and ascending a mountain, accompanied by a small droid that appears to be scanning. In the background, crashed into a landscape full of waterfalls, is what appears to be a Republic-era Star Destroyer.
Before the leak occurred, we already knew the story of Jedi Fallen Order will revolve around a Jedi Padawan who escaped the Emperor's purge as depicted in the film Revenge of the Sith. The game is said to take place in the Dark Times as the Emperor consolidates his power over the galaxy and hunts down the remaining Jedi. This image itself doesn't appear to shed much new light on the story, but it does look pretty cool. And hey, we know there will be t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Episode 9 trailer has revealed that Palpatine is back in some capacity for the movie, though we're not sure exactly how the Emperor pulled it off.
Respawn began teasing its impending announcement with a social media post that showed a shrouded, broken lightsaber. It was accompanied by the words "Don't stand out," a possible reference to the story of Jedi in hiding.
