I am a big gamer, and so is my entire family. We are also huge Star Wars fans so when I found out that the new Star Wars game Jedi: Fallen Order was going to have a panel at Star Wars Celebration, I had to be there. What I saw at the panel, has me so HYPED for this game. I cannot wait to get it in November and take a week off to just sit and play it (I wish). The story line, the characters, and those Purge Troopers won me over.

One of the coolest things about the panel was the announcement of the voice of the main character Cal Kestis. Cameron Monaghan is known for his roles in Shameless and Gotham, and he is now stepping in to the Star Wars universe. He came out on stage to talk about his experience doing the motion capture and voicing of his character, and we even saw some awesome video.
The Purge Troopers
You guys know I love me some villains. I totally lean toward the dark side. Seeing a new type of Trooper had my heart racing. Then they came out on stage and it was everything. To see them in action was super cool. I foresee these guys becoming a hit costume for future Star Wars Celebrations, mark my words.
About Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Cal Kestis – one of the last surviving members of the Jedi Order after the purge of Order 66 – is now a Padawan on the run. Experience this all-new single-player Star Wars™ story from Respawn Entertainment and EA Star Wars on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC this holiday season.
Players will meet Cal on Bracca, a brand-new Star Wars planet and one of several new locations introduced in the game. Cal is hiding from the Empire in plain sight but is forced to go on the run when he exposes his Force powers. Along the way, Cal will make new friends, like his mysterious companion Cere, as well as run into some familiar faces, all while being accompanied by his faithful droid BD-1. Cal’s flight from the Empire is made even more dangerous as he is being pursued by the Second Sister, one of the Empire’s elite Inquisitors, who seeks to hunt Cal down and extinguish this surviving Jedi. Assisting the Second Sister are the terrifying Purge Troopers, special Imperial forces trained to seek out Jedi and aid the Inquisitors in their dastardly work.
