The Disney Infinity video game franchise could be heading to galaxy far, far, away if the latest hints of a studio executive are to be taken to heart. The game series, which sees various characters from Disney franchises brought together into a single world, has consistently expanded with Disney's latest acquisitions.
Recently, we heard that Disney's Marvel characters would be added to next months second generation release, but now there's hints that the Star Wars gang could also be joining the fun in the not too distant future.
In an interview with Newsarama, John Blackburn, CEO of Disney Infinity developer Avalanche Software and Infinity executive producer John Vignocchi dropped some heavy hints that we could be seeing lightsabers and blasters in Disney Infinity by next year. Blackburn reportedly told Vignocchi, "I like your other tease better. We can talk about the future, but that's far, far away." To which Vignocchi replied, "2015 is not so far, far away anymore, is it?"
Of course, the phrase 'far, far away' has long since come synonymous with the Star Wars universe as each of its movies start with the title: "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."
With this in mind, I think we can take this as an extraordinarily strong hint of what to expect. This isn't terrible surprising, Disney has been eager to incorporate almost all of its properties into Disney Infinity including its Pixar creations as well as Pirates of the Caribbean, The Lone Ranger and the move mentioned Marvel.
With [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) also releasing in 2015, it seems like the ideal time for a bit of cross-over promotion, don't you think?
