Disney Infinity, J.J. Abrams Comment and Prequel Appreciation Day

Star Wars Prequel News This Week

It was officially announced just days ago that the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition will include the Star Wars universe as well as Marvel and Disney Pixar. There will be three Star Wars playsets where you can play as: Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Darth Maul, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, Chewbacca, and Darth Vader. One of the playsets will be released later this year which will be based on The Force Awakens.

The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack will now sell for a lower suggested retail price of $64.99 and will be available this fall. The Starter Pack includes the Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano Figures, and the new Toy Box 3.0. In addition to that, 3.0 Power Discs will come in labeled packs instead of blind packs.

I've never tried Disney Infinity but I've read not-so-great reviews and have heard from many people that it's over-hyped and that the game play isn't that great. I don't know if by now it may have gotten better? I was absolutely shocked to see that Disney included prequel characters in this game! That's the one thing that I'm most excited about and I hope that it's a sign that they haven't forgotten that there actually a lot of fans who love the PT and The Clone Wars cartoon!

Star Wars Prequel News This Week

In the latest Vanity Fair issue that EVERYBODY is talking about, J.J. Abrams makes a comment that has left fans of the prequel trilogy upset...

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS - HIGHLIGHT TO READ*

Director J. J. Abrams revealed that he’s thought about killing off the very controversial Jar Jar Binks. Sitting in an edit bay at his Bad Robot production office and pointing to a frame of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Abrams told Vanity Fair contributing editor Bruce Handy, “I have a thought about putting Jar Jar Binks’s bones in the desert there. I’m serious! Only three people will notice, but they’ll love it.

That just seems downright cold hearted to me and really unnecessary. I'm not the biggest fan myself but I wouldn't just throw that into the movie just to make the haters happy. Honestly, that would seem so out of place and very purposefully done.
