In what might be considered a major spoiler, numerous sites (via ComicBook.com), stemming from an advertisement that is now taken down via order from Disney Interactive, are reporting that a new group of characters are coming to Disney Infinity 3.0. Not surprisingly, the new characters are from the Star Wars universe. However, what is surprising, is that the characters seem to be from The Clone Wars animated TV series. You know, the one that we all loved, then Disney bought Lucasfilm, and the series got cancelled despite having great ratings and unfinished stories. Yeah, that one. The figures appear to be based on the appearances of the characters in Clone Wars.
This is doubly curious when you consider that Star Wars Rebels is not only a fully owned Disney show, but it’s doing just as well as Clone Wars was doing, if not better in some ways. This could be seen as a peace offering to those who still hold Clone Wars in high regards.
So, what characters can we expect? Well, according to the pic above, we’re confirmed to get Anakin Skywalker and Ashoka Tano, who were two of the main characters in Clone Wars. However, that doesn’t mean this will solely be a Clone Wars only grouping. If you look on the box art, you’ll also see: Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and C-3PO. While some resemble their counterparts in Clone Wars, Leia and Vader were never in the series. So this could simply be the first step into a larger world.
