ISIS take over Tunisian Star Wars locations

ISIS take over Tunisian Star Wars locations
Today, 08:27 AM

Tourists are being warned to stay away from popular Star Wars sites in Tunisia as the terrorist organisation known as Islamic State, commonly referred to as ISIS, has begun using the area as a waystation for recruitment.

Tataouine, which lent it's name to the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker, is roughly 60 miles from the Libyan border and several reports have emerged detailing Jihadist activity in the area. ISIS have recently been in the news for the destruction of historically significant archaeological sites, such as the site of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, so it is unknown what the ultimate fate of the Tunisian Star Wars sets of locations like Mos Espa may be.

England Rugby has teamed up with Disney to deliver a new advertising campaign featuring Darth Vader and other Star Wars characters alongside members of the England Sevens squad.

The 30-second video spot will be accompanied by a print and social media campaign centred around the 2015 theme, which is 'galactic', in the run up to rugby's Marriott London Sevens, an annual event held at Twickenham Stadium in London. For the past few years, the Marriott London Sevens has also been the final part of the HSBC Seven World Series on 16 and 17 May.

EA has revealed that the upcoming Battlefront reboot from DICE will be only be available on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, in a move that may leave owners of the previous generation of consoles out in the cold. Developers say that dropping the older consoles will allow them to make full use of the Frostbite 3 engine upon which the game is built.

More details about the game are due to be shared at Star Wars Celebration next month, where fans hope to see an official trailer for the game and see some of the gameplay.

The new Battlefront is said to be a reboot of the franchise rather than a continuation, is scheduled for release at the end of 2015 to coincide with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline

Check out the timeline! It's still under construction!

In the continuity of the Star Wars saga there are eight clearly defined eras into which every story fits, and you can see these listed below.

The earliest stories occur Before the Republic, and tales of the Sith Wars and Jedi Civil War take place during the Republic era. The time of the Star Wars prequels are nestled within the Rise of the Empire era, which comes to an end with the Battle of Yavin and the start of the Rebellion era. After the fall of the Empire comes a New Republic, but the galaxy is changed again when the Yuuzhan Vong invade the galaxy at the start of the New Jedi Order era. The future is unclear, but many tales have already been told in the Legacy era...

The final publishing category is Infinities, which are often alternate universe or other stories considered non-canon. We currently have not included these stories in our timeline.

As new stories are always being added, this is a continuous work in progress, so if you spot a mistake or omission please let us know!
