Josh Brolin to Play Thanos in Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'


By Dave Bouressa

Many movie-goers left the after-credits scene of Marvel's 'The Avengers' with curiosity as an unknown helmeted, pink-faced being turned to the screen and smiled, but in every screening, there was sure to be that one person who was involuntarily peeing themselves at the appearance of Thanos.


Joss Whedon has made it clear that that Thanos will not be appearing in The Avengers 2 and will not face the group until the third film in the trilogy. However, Thanos will be appearing in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy.

A source from Latino Review had this to say:


"An article on James Gunn's post-production process reported a scene with Thanos on a rocket throne in Act 3, which suggests an appearance long enough that someone is going to have to voice the Mad Titan, someone that could take the part into Avengers 3 as a major villain. 

That meant Marvel was looking for an actor of some caliber, someone that could give a performance to a very complex, but very purple-skinned alien villain.Our sources tell us that person is JOSH BROLIN!! He'll be providing the voice of Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and with a name and reputation like that, it's likely he'll join James Spader and Tom Hiddleston as actors who have tried to kill The Avengers."

It does make sense for Thanos to be appearing, because one of the major characters in the film is the space pirate Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, who is the daughter of Thanos. Also, Thor: The Dark World's after-credits scene left us with The Collector collecting gems for the Infinity Gauntlet-Thanos' weapon of choice, if and the Infinity Gauntlet is coming, Thanos won't be far behind.

J.J. Abrams On Set of Star Wars Episode VII


By Dave Bouressa

J.J. Abrams is currenly in Abu Dhabi for the shooting of Star Wars Episode VII, which just began a few days ago. However, Abrams is not the only one to make an appearance-as an upcoming alien (which will probably be a mere background character) walks into view, showing that puppets and live action creatures will be primarily used for the film, as opposed to strictly CGI.





In the video, Abrams announces "Force For Change", a brand new initiative dedicated to finding creative solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems. The first Star Wars: Force for Change campaign will raise funds and awareness for UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and its innovative projects benefitting children in need.

By contributing to a small donation, you (yes, you reading this) will have the opportunity to have a part in the upcoming film. Be sure to check out www.Omaze.com/StarWars to do your part to help someone in need and be a part of history.

New Trailer for Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'


By Dave Bouressa

If you weren't excited for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy before, you will be now. After much build-up and anticipation, Marvel has finally released its latest trailer for the next chapter in its superhero saga. Check it out.



“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team — the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. 

Aside from being every kind of awesome imaginable, this trailer gives us two things that people have been clinging on to the most, and the two characters that will make or break this film-Rocket and Groot. Rocket looks absolutely incredible, and with Bradley Cooper voicing him, it is sure to be a massive hit. Fans will obviously be upset that Rocket doesn't have his signature accent, but I'm sure Cooper will fill the role nicely. And as far as Groot, we finally get an "I am Groot", and the only thing that comes to mind is "Yep...that's Vin Diesel".

New Trailer for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

By Dave Bouressa

Paramount has just released a brand new trailer for its upcoming addition to the Michael Bay Transformers Universe, Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. Check it out!




The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn, but with the world saved. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history... while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. In an incredible adventure, they are swept up in a war of good and evil, ultimately leading to a climactic battle across the world.

No Shia LaBeof, no Megatron, no Megan Fox, giant dinosaurs... could this be the turn-around that the "Bayformers" need in order to pull the franchise out of its infamous hole, or is Bay just replacing one big problem with another big problem? We'll just have to wait and see this summer.




Transformers 4: Age of Extinction stars Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer, and Sophia Miles and hits theaters June 27th, 2014.

First Look at the CW's "The Flash" Television Series


By Dave Bouressa


After two full seasons of Arrow, the CW has decided to give us a look into its latest venture into the DC universe with The Flash. Although shaky in its first season, the second season of Arrow really dived into the characters of the DC universe by giving us Black Canary, Speedy, Deathstroke, and yes, even young Barry Allen himself. Now, young Barry will be getting a series all to himself.

Check out the teaser trailer.





After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.


It is unknown whether or not this show will follow more along the lines of Arrow or Smallville, but it raises another question entirely. We all know that Batman Vs Superman is quickly becoming a Justice League film, with the inclusion of characters such as Wonder Woman and Cyborg. One can only wonder if this series will lead up to the film, or even include the same actor, should The Flash be added to the already large roster.



Does Warner Brothers and DC have the foresight to not only pull this off, but compete against their rival, Marvel, which not only built Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D so it would flow along side with Captain America 2, but also have the next 17 of their films planned? We will have to wait and see.

First Look at Ben Affleck as Batman


By Dave Bouressa

When Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for the upcoming Man of Steel sequel, people weren't sure how to react. How would the man who played Daredevil (which was a cinematic flop) play possibly the most famous superhero of all time?

Well, for now, we'll just have to wait and see. However, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder graced us with a first-look into the official new look for the dark knight via his twitter account.


Here is an up close and personal look.


Could this be a turn-around for Batman? Could you really see this man facing off against Superman in what is to be DC and Warner Brother's boldest move yet? Is "Batman Vs Superman" in good hands? Let us know what you think! 

Man of Steel 2, or "Batman Vs Superman" comes out May 6, 2016



Live-Action 'Frozen' Characters Coming to 'Once Upon a Time'


By Dave Bouressa

"Let it go....let it go...."

Months and months after the initial release of Frozen, the world is still in the middle of "Frozen fever" with its music still being played on radio stations, DVD sales through the rough, and live cast performances continuing to this day-even as the summer months quickly approach.

However, if there is anyone who is refusing to "let it go", it's Disney-who decided to give us a look the upcoming villain for the next season of ABC's hit fairy-tale series, Once Upon a Time.



Once Upon a Time is not strictly based around characters in the Disney film universe, but around other fairy tale characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Dr. Frankenstein, and the Wicked Witch of the West (which is hilariously ironic if you know anything about Idina Menzel), but with Disney's ownership of ABC, it is no wonder why Once Upon a Time is rich with characters such as Captain Hook, Snow White, Mulan, Pinocchio, and many more, including the latest addition to its incredible Disney line-up.


It has been confirmed that Elsa will be playing the lead villain for the upcoming season, so it is likely they will be using the character much closer to the initial concept of the film, where she would become evil, which is more along the lines of the story the film is loosely based upon-The Snow Queen, written by Hans Christian Anderson. Whether or not other characters from the film would be appearing has yet to determined.



Be sure to catch Elsa as she brings a chill to Storybrooke in season 4 of Once Upon a Time, coming this fall to ABC.

Star Wars Episodes I,II, and III Edited into a Single Better Film




By Dave Bouressa

When Topher Grace announced last year that he was going to test out his editing chops by condensing the three Star Wars prequels into one single film, the internet went into a frenzy. Unfortunately, Grace has stated that he is not doing so to disrespect Lucas, but to merely test out if it can be done, and it will most likely never be seen except for a chosen few.

HOWEVER, taking the same idea, someone has taken a crack at condensing down the prequels into a single film called "Star Wars: Turn to the Dark Side", and boy, does it flow much better. We all know that you have every line of every movie memorized-forget it, because otherwise you will be sitting there thinking "Oh, they took this out" or "What about this part". In the words of Yoda, "You must unlearn what you have learned". This version takes out all the nonsense and focuses what the prequels were supposed to be about-the rise and fall of Anakin Skywalker.

And if you aren't convinced yet, The Phantom Menace takes up the first five minutes-and that's it.



Here is the description of the video.

A re-imagining of the Star Wars prequel trilogy edited into a single compelling movie, based on the structure conceived by actor Topher Grace. As a critique of episodes 1-3, many large plot pieces have been removed or changed the strengthen the core relationship between Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidala. More than 100 video and audio edits heighten the main character's tragic fall from grace.


Much like with Grace's announcement, fans of the prequels went balistic. "How dare you try to take something I love and chop it up into tiny pieces and glue it together". As someone who also prefers the prequels (I don't think they're better, I just find them more interesting), I raise this argument. If the final product ends up actually working better, do you still have a reason to be upset?

Let us know in the comments.

20th Century Fox Reveals Final Trailer for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"


By Dave Bouressa

Early this morning, 20th Century Fox gave us the latest look into its upcoming film, "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", and judging from the trailer, it is easy to see how the Apes take over. They are getting smarter and growing and number, while humans are becoming more panicky and after dying from the virus introduced in the first film, have been fighting and killing each other because hey, what else do you expect us to do? Help each other?

Long story short, everything is going to hell, and it's being lead by a chimp on a horse.



A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" hits theaters July 11th, 2014 and stars Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrigue Murciano, Toby Kebbel, Kirck Aceveda, Judy Greer and is directed by Matt Reeves.

Nintendo Announces Pokemon Ruby and Saphire Remakes-Omega Ruby and Alpha Saphire



By Dave Bouressa

Following in the footsteps of Pokemon Fire Red and Leaf Green, along with Pokemon Soul Silver and Heart Gold comes the latest installment in the Pokemon franchise- Pokemon Alpha Saphire and Omega Ruby. Ruby and Saphire were the first Pokemon games to come to the Gameboy Advanced, and are considered to be fan favorites of the series.
"Confirmation" of their remake has become the butt of many jokes among the internet for quite a few years, but now the joke is on them-because (and I can't believe I'm going to say it)...  HOENN REMAKE CONFIRMED!!!


Pokemon: Alpha Saphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby hit shelves November 2014.

Star Wars Battlefront Footage To Be At E3 This June


By: Bailey Casello

If you're anything like me, it will be hard to contain fanboy/girl squealing after reading the news that Battlefront III is going to be making an appearance at this years E3 conference. 

According to CEO Andrew Wilson "Battlefront will be among the games EA shows off at E3 in June, but whether it will be playable or simply seen in video form was not revealed." -Gamespot

"EA signed a deal last year with Disney to create "core" Star Wars games. The  developer of Dead Space, Visceral is currently at work on a new reportedly open-world Star Wars game, which is being written by former Uncharted writer Amy Henning. Meanwhile, DICE has been tasked with developing Battlefront."

EA's E3 conference is scheduled for Monday, June 9th. It is not known whether the gameplay will be seen here or at a console conference. And for those of you keeping tabs on what is and isn't canon, the new Battlefront III story will be considered canon, as will anything Star Wars released from this point on.
I am just excited to have a new Battlefront game, hopefully its just as good as the first two.

At Least Three "Confirmed" Star Wars Spinoffs


By: Bailey Casello

What was once speculation has now been "confirmed". There will be at least three Star Wars spinoffs that will be released in between the movies of the new trilogy. Read the article here at warped factor.

I think we can safely assume that Boba Fett and Han solo will have their own movie, although even that is not confirmed. The question is, who would they be doing a third movie on? Could it be something to do with Asajj Ventress since the internet seems to be blowing up with that rumor. Perhaps instead of having Ventress in Episode VII we will get her in a spinoff.

The world may never know...

Stan Lee Thinks Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury Should be More "Samuel L. Jacksony"


By Dave Bouressa

At the C2E2 convention a few weeks back, Stan Lee, the famous co-writer for basically all of the Marvel Universe (along side Jack Kirby), had some things to say about the latest cinematic representation of his comic book universe.

First, he revealed what the letters of S.H.I.E.L.D. actually meant to stand for: "Supreme Headquarters, International Espionage, Law-Enforcement Division", as opposed to the well known "Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division". Lee goes on to state that he has no idea why it was changed.

Secondly, he mentioned Samuel L. Jackson's portrayal of Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"Sam Jackson can do the best angry, tough guy you could imagine, and everytime I see him in the movie he's so quiet and soft-spoken, and I'm waiting for him to get excited and yell at people and he never does, so I don't know why they don't make him more like I picture him being".




In other words, Nick Fury needs to call more people "mother fuckers. I am ok with this.

Unsure of what good old Stan is talking about? Check out this iconic scene from "Pulp Fiction" and just picture Nick Fury in his younger days. 


SAY "HAIL HYDRA" AGAIN! SAY "HAIL HYDRA" AGAIN! I DARE YOU! I DOUBLE DARE YOU, MOTHER FUCKER, SAY "HAIL HYDRA" ONE MORE GOD DAMNED TIME! 

Poetry. Simply poetry.

First Look at Chewbacca in Star Wars Episode VII




By Dave Bouressa


Word has been spreading throughout the internet of the possible first picture from the set of Star Wars Episode VII, and it is of none other than everyone's favorite furry friend, Chewbacca with Disney CEO Bob Iger.


This picture comes to us from the official Star Wars Instagram, and can't help but put a smile on our faces. Clearly the one in the suit is Peter Mayhew, because nobody quite has that perfect combination of height, head tilt, and big adorable eyes that makes Chewbacca perfect. Every day closer to the release of the film, I can't help but think "It's actually happening!!!" and jump up and down. 

To those of you who are saying "Shouldn't he have a little gray in his hair or something?", time to hand in your fan card. Wookiees can live up to 700 years or so, and Chewie is only around 200 in the Original Trilogy. 30 years is like nothing, and he doesn't look a day over 150, and at the risk of having your arms ripped out of your sockets, be sure to tell him that!

EXCERPT: Star Wars: A New Dawn

By: Bailey Casello

As we all know, the expanded universe was announced as non-canon. Which means the dawn of a new era of books (see what I did there... pun?).

Randomhouse, and John Jackson Miller have given the fans a mini excerpt of the coming book A New Dawn, set to be released September 2, 2014. Set between Episode III and Episode IV, during the Dark Times, the story follows how our two new heroes from Star Wars Rebels come to cross paths.

Let it be known that there is an emphasis on the mini. It may only be a paragraph, but it is something.

Here is the excerpt from Star Wars Books on Facebook:

"It was time to move. Hera picked out the identifying transponder signal of a ship in the convoy. One button-push later, her ship was that vessel, as far as anyone trying to watch traffic was concerned. With practiced ease, she weaved her freighter into the chaotic flood of cargo ships heading to the moon. None of these guys can fly worth a flip, she thought. It was just as well it wasn’t a recruiting trip. She probably wouldn’t have found anyone worth her time."

TRAILER: Star Wars Rebels



By: Bailey Casello

It is finally May 4th, which means there should be a lot of updates to look forward to. Seeing as I'm currently unable to sleep I was able to catch the new full minute long trailer of Star Wars Rebels! I have to say that this cartoon is showing some promise.



Within the first seconds we hear the Imperial March, and we see a brief shot of what (hopefully) is a new planet. We also get to see some of the humor that will be incorporated into the show. Out of everything in the trailer though I would have to say my favorite bit was the very end. Not only do we see the hologram of the Inquisitor, but then shortly after you hear "Focus your fire on... the Jedi." Not only did that give me goosebumps, but then you see Kanan put his hilt together. I'm happy to see that they are now tinkering with the designs of lightsabers.
Well, enough of my babbling, here it is folks: Star Wars Rebels: The Full Trailer

Showtime Partners with Xbox for 'Halo' Television Series


By Dave Bouressa


According to a report from Variety, the Showtime network is in talks with Xbox and Microsoft for an upcoming television series based on the Halo video game series, and apparently are close to making a deal.

Xbox has been working on this series with Steven Spielberg and is pushing the series to screen with screenwriter Stuart Beattie. However, this series will not go directly to Showtime (assuming the deal breaks through). Xbox hopes to use the series to help "enhance the Xbox platform as an entertainment service for its base of 48 million subscribers".

In other words, if the series does get picked up, it is going to be Xbox exclusive for the beginning of its run, hence why the deal with Showtime is still being worked on. Sources have stated that Showtime plans to have the series on its network before coming to Xbox, but details are still being worked out.

Fans of the series have wanted a Halo film for quite some time but due to technicalities involving right ownership should a film atually occur, it appears that a television series is perhaps the next best thing. And thanks to a fan-made high-budget mini series from Machinima, "Halo: Forward Unto Dawn", we have now seen the incredible feats that can come when great people with passion and a high budget come together.



After viewing this series, one can only imagine what we could be seeing with the backing of a full studio and Steven Spielberg behind it. Stay tuned for more information.

'Attack on Titan' Comes to Toonami on May 3rd


By Dave Bouressa

'Shingeki no Kyojin', or more commonly known as 'Attack on Titan', has made an incredible name for itself and has become a titan in and of itself. After having only one season under its belt, the series has skyrocketed to fan favorite almost immedeately. After it's initial Japanese release on Netflix, fans wanted more, and if you were one of the lucky ones to attend Anime Boston, you got to see the reveal of the English Dub of the series.

Now, the English dub of 'Attack on Titan' is coming to Toonami-Cartoon Network's Saturday night Anime block on May 3rd.




When the man-eating giants called Titans first appeared, humans retreated behind massive walls. After a hundred years of safety, a colossal-sized Titan smashes through the defenses, unleashing a flood of giants and carnage in the streets. Eren Jaeger watches helplessly as one of the creatures devours his mother.

He vows to kill every Titan walking the earth. Eren and his surviving friends enlist to fight against the insatiable monsters. The future looks bleak, but there's more to Eren than meets the eye: he may be humanity's last hope against extinction. From the director of Death Note and High School of the Dead comes the series Anime News Network calls "an intense, visceral, and graphic thrill ride." The Titans have come to feast. Anything can happen. No one is safe.





Attack on Titan comes to Toonami on May 3rd at 11:30pm.

Doctor Who's Matt Smith Joins Cast of Terminator: Genesis


By Dave Bouressa

According to a new report from Deadline, the latest Terminator film has a new addition to its cast-and what better person to cast in a film about evil time-travelling robots than the Time Lord himself, Matt Smith, fresh off from his 3 year run as The Doctor on Doctor Who.

Skydance Productions confirms this on their twitter account.


It is being said that Smith will play a significant role for this film that will circle back into the second and third films (like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff). How exactly it will play out has yet to be determined, but it has been stated that his role will be major in the film.

Joining Smith on Terminator: Genesis are Emilia Clarke (Sarah Conner), Jason Clarke (John Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Day Okeniyi (Danny Dyson) and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

New Teaser Trailer for 'Star Wars: Rebels'


By Dave Bouressa

Following the wake of the announcement of the full trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels' coming on May 4th, Lucasfilm has graced us with yet another teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars series coming to Disney XD.

Check out the teaser trailer from Empire Online.




When asked about the upcoming series, Executive Producer Dave Filoni had this to say.

"I think it’s important that Rebels be its own thing," said Filoni. "We created a monster in Clone Wars and there is a generation of kids now that love those characters, so you can imagine that when we’re in the story room I am pitching connections here and there. And to be honest [fellow executive producers] Simon [Kinberg] and Greg [Weisman] have watched Clone Wars and they are excited by it. Star Wars is such a universal thing. I think people would be disappointed if there wasn’t some connection, but at the same time I want the Star Wars Rebels characters to shine in their own right, and I want them to capture a new generation of fans as each, you know, moment in Star Wars storytelling does. They need their own space as well."

But what about the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII? Is there a sort of Star Wars High Command to determine that the series and the movie (which are both canon) don't clash?

"The answer would be yes. I am aware of things that are going on all over the Star Wars galaxy. The same story team that is working on collaborating with the creatives on the feature collaborates with me, so I have a direct link to everything going on, which is incredibly exciting and incredibly stressful because of all the secrets that we now carry inside our astromech units. You know, I think it’s important. I love working with creative teams that appreciate that and take the time to make it all happen, because you can imagine that it’s a tremendous effort to have all these stories going on the whole time."



'Star Wars Rebels' premieres this fall with an hour long special on Disney Channel, followed by an upcoming series on Disney XD.

'Star Wars: Rebels' Full Trailer to Debut on May 4th


By Dave Bouressa

Lucasfilm is no stranger to the fanmade holiday "Star Wars Day"-May 4th, as in "May the Fourth be with you", so over the years, they have adopted this day as an unofficial holiday for the franchise and have used it to reveal tidbits about Star Wars content coming our way. One of these tidbits is the first full trailer for the upcoming Star Wars television series: 'Star Wars Rebels'.

Check out a clip below of one of our main heroes, Hera Syndulla, piloting her ship, "The Ghost".



The full trailer for 'Star Wars Rebels' will debut on Disney XD during the showing of the new Star Wars Lego Special, 'Star Wars: The New Yoda Chronicles' at 7pm. Along with this announcement, several pictures have been released to build up anticipation. (Click to Enlarge)


However, while we wait for the full series trailer, be sure to check out the two teaser trailers.





Be sure to stick around on May 4th for the full trailer for 'Star Wars: Rebels'. 'Star Wars: Rebels' comes to Disney XD this fall. May the Fourth be with you.




Marvel's "The Avengers" Makes Their Way to Disney Infinity



By Dave Bouressa

In a recent announcement, Disney has announced that they are adding the Marvel Universe to their "Disney Infinity" game and toyline.




Announcing Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition)! Bring many of your favorite Marvel Super Heroes into an even bigger Toy Box and all new Play Sets. Unlock the freedom to create worlds and combine Marvel and Disney characters in ways never-seen-before in the Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy Box. Disney Infinity Just Got Super-Powered.



Of course you'll be able to fly through the skies as Iron Man, or smash a city with The Hulk, but it is also important to notice the inclusion of Rocket Raccoon and Groot, from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film coming later this year. And in an odd turn of events, Spiderman makes an appearance near the end. Considering Sony owns the film rights to Spiderman, we will never see Spiderman in the Avenger cinematic universe. This inclusion of Spiderman also brings question to the inclusion of The Fantastic Four and The X-Men, both of whom have their film rights owned by Fox.

With the inclusion of the Marvel Universe, one can only wonder what Disney has in the works for their recently obtained Star Wars Universe. Representatives from Disney have stated on several occasions that at the moment, they have no current plans to include Star Wars into Disney Infinity, but as we get closer to the released date of Episode VII, coming December 18th, 2015 (a week before Christmas, I might add), who knows what we will be seeing-especially since a lightsaber easter egg already in the game. Click HERE to find out how to get a lightsaber in the game.



However, with "Star Wars Day" quickly approaching, and Lucasfilm putting out more and more news about the future of Star Wars everyday for the past few days, it is very possible we could be hearing something about Disney Infinity coming in the near future.
