Disney have announced, as expected, the next universe to be added to their Infinity games will be Star Wars.
Disney have also announced that they will be launching 3 playsets covering episodes I-III, IV-VI & VII. From promotional material you can see this is going to cover everything from the Clone Wars version of Anakin Skywalker, Darth himself, Luke, Chewie, Ewen McGregor's Obi-Wan & the hardcore version of Yoda. There are going to be a lot of characters taking the stage and they'll be periodically released with the episode VII stuff likely to coincide with the film's release in December. Interestingly they have also confirmed all Star Wars characters can be used in all Star Wars playsets.
In addition, Disney have been keen to make sure the other areas of the business get a look in with new Marvel & Classic characters.
New versions of Mickey & Minnie have been confirmed along with AT-AT loving Olaf and new franchise Inside Out which is out next month.
Disney have been quite quiet about the new Marvel items. They have no confirmed what exactly will be involved apart from a Hulkbuster Iron Man which is likely to come in the form of a bigger figure like Venom or Green Goblin from the current series. In my opinion, I think that the set will be an Age of Ultron theme as it's the biggest film out in the phasing. Ant-Man just doesn't seem prestigious enough and Civil War will be too far away. Plus, the prospect of having an Ultron figure seems just too special to pass! It just better be voiced by James Spader.
The official trailer is below.
