Star Wars Characters Teased for Disney Infinity in 2015

We may end up seeing Star Wars content introduced to the Disney Infinity series next year.

The wealth of properties owned by Disney--and thus, fodder for its Disney Infinity series--is staggering, but no doubt one of the biggest is Star Wars. The franchise may be the next to be brought into the digital world of Infinity, if a tease from the game's developer is any indication.

As part of an interview with Newsarama, developer Avalanche Software CEO John Blackburn and Infinity executive producer John Vignocchi talked about teasing future content. Vignocchi said, "My favorite character is one that has not yet been announced. It's a female character. A Disney character. And we will not tell retail who it is for a very long time in order to keep it a secret!" This prompted Blackburn to say, "I like your other tease better: 'We can talk about the future, but that's far, far away.'" In response, Vignocchi said, "2015 is not so far, far away anymore, is it?"

Subtle as it is, the two were clearly referencing the opening crawl from the Star Wars films, which sets up their story as taking place "[a] long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…."

Infinity is Disney's Skylanders-like series that consists of a game and collectable, physical figurines that can be used to unlock in-game content. It has already expanded beyond its original scope of content from Disney and Pixar properties like Cars, The Incredibles, and Pirates of the Caribbean--the upcoming entry in the series, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes, introduces content from the Marvel universe. Some of the figures that will be available for the game, which launches in September, include Iron Man, The Hulk, and Captain America.

If you're not already a fan of Infinity, would Star Wars content be enough to get you interested in a future Infinity game? What figures would you most want to get your hands on? Let us know in the comments below.

C3PO and R2D2 are my answer to the ending question.

Why tease it.  Everyone knows that Disney will do it.  They did it with Marvel so obviously, they will try and run Star Wars into the ground.

No sorry, this is not a case of it may happen... It WILL happen.

Not sure if kids will be interested in the character Han Solo with a blaster in one hand and a walking stick in the other, but then again Yoda gets away with it.

I have to admit, I was really iffy on Disney Infinity until they popped it out on PC for free and decided to give it a shot. Honestly it's not that bad, other then the obvious pay wall you run into if you want to buy the figures and such. Fun little game.

Yes, this is exactly what we've all been asking for!

I would like Star Wars to become more dark and have a more adult theme to it, but I think that will not happen anytime soon.

Cool. More to look forward to after getting Infinity 2.0 for the PS4 in September.

I'd really want them to include Darth Maul in it. Here's hoping!

This isn't particularly surprising and I've seen worse already (Star Wars Kinect), so go ahead.

Holy Jeezus Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Wars characters in the same game my brain is going to explode.

Look...  Disney Infinity is an awesome game, I already have my Marvel figures pre-ordered,  and I'll gladly get Star Wars figures as well as long as Episode 7 is good.  Someday Wreck it Ralph could be punching an Ewok in the face,  this is a future I think we can all get behind.

Meh, they own the rights and can do whatever they want with it.  Star Wars is dead to me anyways.

@Spartan-1657 Yes include the most sinister and awesome looking villain in a kids game makes sense. Disney will kill Star wars they already started by having Cross overs with their Cartoons.

@sonyonly4 Where've you been?  That happened ages ago when the MPAA wanted to give the first movie a G-rating, because it was a kids movie.

@xisiuizado @burnettaj I don't know if we watched the same movies. The wars were about tax laws and representation among other things. Adult themes are all over the place. The only 'kids movie' stuff I see is the hocus-pocus of the force and the lack of real gore.

@Llama345 @xisiuizado @burnettaj

Adult themes <> adult movies. It isn't any different than all of the adult references in Pixar films. Also, when I say kids I am referring to teenagers who can grasp the geopolitical intricacies, not just little tikes. :)

That is why the Prequels failed... What kid is interested such tedious subjects, actually not many adults are.

@xisiuizado is correct the original Star Wars movie and it's two sequels were intended for children.

I'd prefer to call them Family Films though.
