Brett's Production Diary #1

Announcing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

February 13, 2007

Get an Insider's look at the making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed every week from Assistant Producer Brett Rector. Formerly editor-in-chief of Star Wars Insider magazine, Brett's been a collector and fan of Star Wars since 1977.

With the release of Revenge of the Sith in May 2005, the circle and story of Darth Vader was believed complete. Yet while there are no more movies on the horizon, there are certainly more tales to tell in that galaxy far, far away -- because as we all know Star Wars is forever. To add tangible context to that statement the crew at LucasArts are right now hard at work on the next link in the mythological chain; a link so strong and powerful it will greatly illuminate a crucial time during not only the rise of the Empire, but the dark lord himself.

To chronicle this huge event, we are pleased to announce a series of production web diaries for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. Each week, fans will be given a first-hand glimpse into the creation of the next chapter in the Star Wars saga, similar to the set diaries that appeared on Hyperspace by Lucasfilm's Pablo Hidalgo during the making of Revenge of the Sith.

Within these installments, we will relay all the details that go into game's creation, including behind-the-scenes accounts from concept to design to tools development--straight on through to release. And you know that the info is legit as it's coming right from the source --

We'd like to start this regular feature with one big reveal: the story revolves around a completely new character, Darth Vader's Secret Apprentice. For now, we're going to let your mind wander and ponder just what we might have in store for this character. But be here next week as we begin our full-scale assault on the making of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
