I’m elated to be working with Lucasfilm Games again to tell interactive stories in this galaxy that I love.” Her passion for developing the new game is clear and it will be thrilling to watch the development cycle proceed through the years until fans are graced with the latest adventure in the Star Wars Universe. The team also will have a lot of creative freedom with the story due to the fact that it is to be an original story for the franchise.
