Back in June, there was a statement by Disney vice president of production John Vignocchi during E3 about if fans would ever be seeing Star Wars coming to LEGO Dimensions and his answer was pretty much no. However today over on Eurobricks, Sir von Lego, who has been known to have insider information, has reported say that they have heard about LEGO Dimensions Star Wars expansion packs coming in late 2016/early 2017.
If you’ve been following anything Star Wars gaming-related, you would know that Disney will be releasing Star Wars characters as part of their Infinity 3.0 line which was announced back in May. Currently, there will be at least two waves of Star Wars Infinity 3.0 characters released this year but no word on any future expansions beyond that at this time.
Could LEGO and Disney have an agreement in place for Star Wars to come to LEGO Dimensions after 2015? Possibly, considering that the LEGO Star Wars license will be running until at least 2022 and there has been high interest from fans for LEGO Dimensions even before its release. Also keep in mind that Sir von Lego has been true to their word the past few years regarding rumors of future LEGO products so it’s pretty hard going against their word. If this rumor is true, we might hear something official at E3 or San Diego Comic Con in 2016 so stay tuned.
