Disney has just announced the next Star Wars mobile game: Star Wars Uprising.

Uprising is the first game that takes place after Return of the Jedi and helps build a bridge between the original trilogy and The Force Awakens.

You can play as a bounty hunter, a smuggler and even a diplomat as you travel through the Anoat System (home of Hoth and Cloud City) in the wake of the destroyed Death Star and fallen Empire.

Uprising is a role playing game so along with going on missions and creating new characters you will learn new abilities and collect new items as you progress.

The game hasn’t been released yet, but you can pre-register for it at (Playstarwarsuprising.com) which allows you to vote on in-game content and win prizes.

According to Lucasfilm, Uprising is official canon (meaning its story is part of the official Star Wars universe). Not sure how that will work with a video game, but it will be interesting to find out.

Do games like this get you more excited for the movie?


Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.
