It seems the biggest spoilers these days are coming from electronics consumer websites. In the tradition of posting something for pre-order way before it’s even been announced, it looks like German electronics retail site Saturn have spilled the beans on a forthcoming Star Wars themed Disney Infinity starter pack. The site, which has since pulled the item, posted a pre order for the pack across all gaming platforms, with a release date of August 20th 2015!
The story was originally posted by a Disney fans news group, who were then asked to pull the story by Disney Interactive. Which means there is probably something to the story. The starter pack was shown to come with two interactive figures, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker and is marked as Disney Infinity 3.
Interestingly enough, they seem to be styled after the Clone Wars animated series, which was one of the first casualties of Disney’s buyout of LucasFilm. You would think that Disney would focus on Star Wars Rebels themes, or the movie characters at least. Sure, Ahsoka is part of Rebels, but standing next to Anakin one can only think of the Clone Wars. Either way though, the set and box art look pretty freaking cool.
One does wonder if Saturn may have spoiled a big announcement that would’ve been around the corner with May the Fourth upon us. Hopefully, in the light of the spoil and with Star Wars Day rapidly approaching, an official announcement will be made sooner rather than later.
