A flirtatious rivalry spanning from childhood into adulthood brings to life EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II in Sony PlayStation’s live action trailer.

The spot by BBH New York begins as a boy playing with Jedi action figures peers through his window at a girl—donned in black and holding a Darth Vader action figure—moves in next door.

As they grow older their glares intensify, along with the good versus evil pranks the play on each other. He sends her a note showing the destruction of the death star … she replaces his football helmet with that of a stormtrooper … he covers her car with an R2-D2-shaped snowman ...

The rivalry continues as they wind up inside the game for a story layered with wrath and passion, and the appeal of a galaxy far, far away—accessible November 17 on PlayStation.
