The suite of products is expected to span almost every genre of wireless entertainment and include a wide range of content from the entire Star Wars saga, including the popular Star Wars Trilogy and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

"We look forward to working with THQ Wireless to offer fans around the world an immersive Star Wars mobile experience," said Casey Collins, Director of Domestic Licensing & Retail Marketing at Lucasfilm Ltd.
