We’re probably about to see plenty more of the crew of the Ghost from Star Wars: Rebels, and not just in the upcoming Season 2 premiere on June 20.
A recent leak from a German retailer apparently reveals that several characters from the Disney Channel show will be making their appearance in the upcoming video game Disney Infinity 3.0.
It’s unclear exactly when these characters may become available. Disney Infinity involves purchasing real-life toys that are then downloaded into playable characters. The game will come with a starter pack of options, but there will also be additional playsets based on each of the trilogies.
The Twilight of the Republic playset will be set after Episode II and feature characters from the prequels. It will be part of the starter pack, set for release this fall at a price of $64.99. It will automatically include figurines of Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano.
Meanwhile, Rise of the Empire will take place during the classic trilogy. There will also be a third The Force Awakens playset, although there aren’t many details on what levels or characters will be included. Both of these should be released toward the end of the year.

This begs the question of when players will be able to acquire these Rebels characters, if they are indeed part of the game. It’s likely that there will be an entirely separate playset revolving around the characters and landscapes of the show. If the Rebels characters are instead lumped in with Twilight or Rise, it would be kind of awkward, as Ezra and crew don’t naturally fit into any of those time periods.
The lack of some key characters is also a bit odd. Although there may be more characters unveiled in an official announcement, the absence of Hera or the Inquisitor seems egregious. We’ll have to wait and see what Disney’s plans are for incorporating the TV series.
