The official Star Wars Twitter account just dropped a teaser trailer for an upcoming crossover event with Epic Games’ Fortnite, set to kick off on May 3, one day before Star Wars Day.

The trailer hinted at new content for LEGO Fortnite, Fortnite Festival, and the classic Battle Royale mode, though it didn’t specify details.

However, a reliable Fortnite insider, @HYPEX (via Insider Gaming), shared some juicy details on Twitter. They mentioned possible comebacks for lightsabers and force powers, plus a cool-sounding new weapon called the “Wookie Bowcaster” and even a potential Chewbacca skin.

While these leaks aren’t confirmed, @HYPEX has a solid track record, so fans are buzzing with excitement.

Considering how essential lightsabers and force powers are to anything related to Walt Disney Company‘s DIS Star Wars, it’s not hard to believe @HYPEX’s info. Plus, they’ve been spot-on with leaks before, like the recent Avatar Elements collab.

This Fortnite x Star Wars mashup might also connect with earlier rumors about a Mandalorian tie-in, hinting at even more Star Wars goodness to come.
