Breakdown:

Quote
-Celebration Edition of SWBF2 to be available for $39.99, which includes all the content released so far and in the future, and all non-event appearances, emotes and victory poses (in other words - those that can unlocked via credits or crystals) already unlocked. Existing players can pay to upgrade the game for $24.99
-Four new reinforcements for the ST - two Resistance, two First Order. Resistance gets the Gunner and Spy, while the First Order will get the Jet Trooper and the Sith Trooper
-December 20th will see Ajan Kloss, the jungle planet seen in the recent trailers, added to Co-Op. Jakku, Starkiller Base and Takodana will also be added.
-Rey, Kylo Ren and Finn will all receive new appearances based on TROS
-In January, Ajan Kloss, Jakku, Starkiller Base and Takodana will be added to both Capital Supremacy and to Instant Action.
-BB-8 and BB-9E will also release as new heroes in January.

No, that last one is not a joke either.

As for the Celebration Edition, it's great for new players, and TBH to unlock all 150+ appearances, 100+ emotes and 90+ victory poses, $24.99 doesn't sound like a bad deal, especially since I feel DICE have really turned the game around this past year. Plus, it's a much smaller price to pay than paying for all the crystals needed to unlock it all.

The real kicker for me will be the expansion of Instant Action in January - which means that the only era without representation will be the OT, and I'm sure that the OT will get some love next year too on that front.
Works in Progress:

--Star Wars: Battlefront 1.25: "First Order-Resistance War Expansion" (2020)
--Main Play Mod Reboot (TBA)
--Star Wars: Battlefront Legacy Phase II (TBA)
