5 out of 5
I knew I recognized that voice and then when I saw the images play out on the trailer there was something familiar about her. I could not get it out of my head. I kept saying. I've seen her in a movie somewhere before, a TV show or something. Something about her.
True Blood, she was a were wolf.
Janina Zione Gavankar is now voicing Commander Iden Versio in the upcoming game Star Wars Battlefront II. This game promises to make up for the rush job that was its predecessor. I managed two months before the trade in for store credit. For shame Disney, For Shame EA, For Shame Lucas.
But here we have a New Hope. A campaign that promises a lead role from the Imperial side of the war. The ones who ended slavery in the galaxy. The Emperor who brought true peace. I once said during a commentary of Clerks the movie. I believe when the Death Star blew up there were plenty of imperial ranking officers on R & R on party planets. Probably spending time with their mistresses living their part time double lives. To see it their main lives end in a flash. Watching in horror as their home base blew up. I believe, without any apology, that many of them lived on the Death Star with their spouses and children. But that's my version of the movie that will likely never be told. I'll create a fan fiction story soon.

It seems that Star Wars is shifting to women and I couldn't be more excited. Now that we have a completely new take on a video game where the entire campaign is from the perspective of the Empire, I am very happy that they're also going lead female as well. To show that the Empire didn't just see diversity as just height or shoe size.
Thirty years, from the the Return of the Jedi to the Last Jedi. It seems that we're going to go on a full canon story and finally see the reason why the First Order or The Empire may have a few points to ad to the board of antagonism. Will this be the pendulum swing that brings fans to the ways of the Empire. Will this become Palpetines final revenge?
I'm also excited that the game will have a mode where we can mix and match heroes from different eras. The multiplayer and coop modes seem like it will push the envelope from any other battlefront games from the past. The fans have spoken and now it seems like we have been heard. This seems like a step in the right direction. I have plenty of faith in what I'm seeing so far. Congratulations to Janina. I can't wait to play the game and kill the rebel scum with you.
