Disney and Lucasfilm announced Friday the newest Star Wars TV characters are joining the Disney Infinity universe. The toybox platform welcomes the Star Wars animated TV series characters Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren and Zeb Orrelios into the already character filled world. The Star Wars Rebels join the already announced cast of Star Wars characters from the original trilogy, adding to the ever growing library of characters from Marvel, Pixar and other Disney storylines.
Each Disney Infinity character comes with its own set of powers and each of the newcomers come with their unique set of abilities:
Jedi turned rebel fugitive, Kanan Jarrus leads his team in secret operations to help overthrow the Galactic Empire. He defends the innocent with his blaster and Lightsaber™ and guides his Padawan, Ezra, in the ways of the Force™.
Growing up on his own, Ezra Bridger relied on his street smarts – and subconscious Force abilities – to survive on Lothal. That changed when he met the Ghost crew; Ezra came to believe in their cause, and with the help of Kanan, began to learn the ways of the Jedi, using his custom Lightsaber to undermine the Empire and inspire the rebels.
Sabine Wren has explosive talents for art and demolitions alike, and she won’t hesitate to use them against the Empire. She can stealthily approach and sabotage the enemy or stand alongside her rebel allies to lend her twin blasters to the cause.
Zeb Orrelios is as strong a brawler as he is headstrong. He stands alongside his fellow rebels with his bo-rifle in hand, ready to take on the Imperial forces.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack (sold separately) includes the Star Wars Twilight of the Republic play set and the Disney Infinity 3.0 base. The best part is that the Rebel characters can be played on each of the new Star Wars play sets. Which is great as each new character adds a different dynamic to the game.
The Disney Interactive team has been busy with a huge batch of recent announcements. Which makes sense since the Disney Studios has been busy with a pretty huge slate of films hitting theaters this year. We know additional Star Wars characters and play sets will be released shortly so stay tuned for thos.
