Clone Wars To Invade Disney Infinity 3.0

April 30, 2015

Not only is the Disney Infinity game including Star Wars characters, the first round of characters will be from…Clone Wars. You know, the show that got the hook once Disney took over. First two figures to come with the game pack will be Anakin and Ahsoka.

AMC To Run A Star Wars Marathon?

April 30, 2015

Reported across the internets is the (as of yet unconfirmed) news that the AMC multiplex chain will run a marathon of the Star Wars films in December, leading up to the release of TFA. Some guy who writes for Star Wars Action Figure News found this out from an AMC manager.

It would be interesting to see if the prequel films will be in 3D since those 3D versions exist.

It remains to be seen if other chains will do something similar. (Come on, Arclight and Cinépolis!)
