A Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order behind-the-scenes clip shows how the game’s lightspeed planet transition look from the outside of the Stinger Mantis.
A new behind-the-scenes clip from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order provides an interesting look at what the game’s lightspeed planet transitions look like outside of the Stinger Mantis. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order earned much praise from Star Wars fans and gamers alike when it launched in 2019 amid EA’s divisive run as the former sole owner of the Star Wars gaming license thanks to a solid single-player narrative, engaging combat, and an impressive presentation that captured the look and feel of the famous Star Wars galaxy.
This includes the ability to travel between several famous Star Wars planets, as Jedi: Fallen Order’s story took Jedi padawan-turned-outcast Cal Kestis and his newfound friends across the galaxy in search of the lost remnants of the old Jedi Order in the wake of Order 66 and the onset of the oppressive Galactic Empire. From their S-161 “Stinger” XL luxury yacht, dubbed the “Stinger Mantis,” players could jump from one world to another, either to advance the main plotline or return to old planets to backtrack and discover the many secrets hidden in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. This involves Cal and his crew sitting down in the cockpit of the Stinger Mantis as the classic lightspeed visual from the Star Wars films plays out in front of them, and now fans can see how developer Respawn recreated this iconic visual in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.
Reddit user CrossingEden recently posted a behind-the-scenes GIF of how Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s lightspeed travel looks outside the Stinger Mantis. This brief clip features the Mantis taking off in the sky above the grassy world of Bogano as the game world darkens around it. A small circle then forms in front of the ship as the scene transitions into the dark void of space, leading to a flash of stars zooming past Fallen Order’s Stinger Mantis followed by the glowing blue-and-white tunnel that represents lightspeed travel in various Star Wars media. The camera then zooms out from the Mantis, causing the tunnel to condense into a single glowing light as the clip ends.
The Stinger Mantis will fly once more in the currently-untitled sequel to Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which was officially confirmed alongside two other EA-published Star Wars games back in January. The plot of this new sequel is still largely unknown, but Cal Kestis’s actor Cameron Monaghan recently expressed hope that the next Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game will take his character in a darker direction as he struggles to find his place in a galaxy at war. Gameplay-wise, some fans believe that Fallen Order 2 could benefit from implementing the dismemberment and lightsaber combat stances from old games like Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
One element from the first Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order game that is sure to return for the sequel is the ability to travel between planets in the Stinger Mantis, and seeing how the ship’s lightspeed travel works is fascinating for fans who have marveled at the phenomena throughout multiple Star Wars movies, shows, and video games. The near-seamless transition between planets in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is as visually impressive to see on the outside as it is to experience in-game, and is just one of the many ways that the game manages to recreate the look and feel of the Star Wars galaxy as players step into the role of a Jedi outcast trying to save it at its darkest hour.
