Some very “opening crawl” style text from a new Star Wars: The Force Awakens game.

Today a game was found on store shelves that features miniature X-wing fighters. The game itself isn’t something I find that interesting, but the text on the back on the box is very informative of the state of the galaxy in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away….

It is a time of uncertainty.  Unrest grips the galaxy as the influence of the First Order spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic forces of the Resistance. As they struggle against the dark might of the enemy, these brave heroes may yet awaken the skill and strength needed to forge a new future…

I really do doubt that any of the opening crawl would end up on a miniature game. But it certainly seems to capture the essence of what a crawl for the movie could be. I find it to be a good general synopsis of the climate of the opening of the film.

Is this a truncated version of the opening crawl or does that game just really have a good writer on the marketing team? Just a few months to go…
