    I actually had the same thought. Maybe we get flashbacks somewhere in the game and Eno is played by Amendonla?

    I heard somewhere that the very beginning of the game takes place pre-Order 66. Guessing a prologue.

    Well that would set the tone for you as a survivor of Order 66.

    Honestly, I didn't notice either...but it seems like an odd oversight for them to make.

    I did notice it looked a little different, but then lightsaber blades always seems to change a little with each iteration. Som of that is down to the different optical VFX techniques attempted back in the day, but even the modern movies that use mostly CG blades (pretty sure even the practical glowing blades are replaced) still managed to look distinct from the also CG prequel blades. See also the change in styles from TCW to SWR.

    So no, I never really thought twice about it either.

    Yeah, the glowing blades are just for lighting effects, they are replaced.

    Some scenes in the ST they used actual glowing duelling blades, similar to what you'd get from third party lighersaber builders (and probably what you get from Galaxy's edge now) that are enhanced in post.

    With polycarbonate blades for combat capable lightsaber props, a clear blade will look more like an OT blade, while a milky white blade will look more like the PT blades.

    New trailer:

    So it looks like Cal is trying to track down some kind of Jedi artifact or temple or something.
    Definitely looking forward to this one, it looks awesome.

    The Ninth Sister from the Vader comics is also in the trailer.

    If you listen carefully you can hear Darth Vader's breathing when Cal enters the Jedi Temple.

    Can't see his face, but I'd put money on that hologram being Amendonla @0:53.

    It does look like it could be Amendola.

    So far most of the reactions to this seem to be good, I'm pretty excited for it.

    Anybody got this yet? It came out today.
    I'm not sure when I'm going to get around to playing this, I already got the year subscription to Disney+ on Tuesday and that was already more money than I should be spending right now.
