Just a short while ago, Disney Infinity SVP & GM, John Blackburn, announced that they have decided to discontinue the production of Disney Infinity. Their final retail releases will be coming out in the next month or two but that is it for the toys-to-life brand. As you may or may not know, Disney Infinity 3.0 was the home to Star Wars line and that’s why LEGO Dimensions didn’t have any expansion packs based on the theme. At E3 2015, Disney vice president of production John Vignocchi also stated that Star Wars will never come to LEGO Dimensions.
Does this announcement of Disney Infinity being cancelled pave way for the Star Wars franchise to come to LEGO Dimensions? If you recall, there was a rumor last year from a fairly reliable source on Eurobricks that there could be LEGO Dimensions Star Wars expansion packs coming in late 2016/early 2017.
There’s no actual correlation between today’s announcement and the rumors but who knows if there’s already a deal between LEGO and Disney/Lucasfilm to produce expansion packs for Dimensions. This could also mean that other Disney franchises could also be coming over to LEGO Dimensions. Stay tuned as I’ll definitely update if there’s any news, especially with E3, San Diego Comic Con, and Gamescom coming in the next few months.
