Which Creates Despair out of Our Rogue One Desires
This past December, Rogue One dominated the box office; hither, maintaining that Star Wars financial success. Yet despite the revenue of Disney movies like The Force Awakens, or the excitement brought by Doctor Strange, the cancellation of Disney Infinity means we won’t see more unique toys that were evidently in development.
Latest toy leaks come from none other than artist B Allen, who had been working on several figures before Infinity’s cancellation. For those who don’t know, the cancellation of Disney Infinity occurred last May, with lead developer Avalanche Software falling under the axe and losing 300 jobs. Rumors point to mismanagement, in lieu of ratings for series itself. Nonetheless, few people know for certain.
But what does seem certain is that Rogue One, Moana, and Zootopia toy lines were in the works. Not only that; several figures were completely finished when news came that production would stop. Reports say a Disney Infinity 4.0 was in development, with a plot that would have combined characters from recent Disney films. From there, would have expanded the roster with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Cars 3, and more.
Along with Darth Vader, a larger line of toys was planned for release alongside Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. We know Jyn Erso was in the mix, along with K-2SO and other members of the rebel band. For all we know, the entire main crew would have come together in Disney Infinity’s next story. We may never know.
However, we would like to know what you think. Does this seem like a missed opportunity for Disney? Is it a shame that these characters never got their figures? Or would you have preferred not knowing about them? Comment down below and let us know.
