Today Disney revealed that Star Wars Rebels characters are coming to Disney Infinity 3.0. A few weeks go we got some leaks that Rebels characters were coming. Now we have it confirmed, complete with figures and screenshots!
Today, on Twitch, Disney Infinity provided some live-looks and gameplay of the Rebels figures. They also noted that they will be giving away 9 figures at E3 next week. Not all nine will be Star Wars characters, but Star Wars will be included.
Also on Twitch, they mentioned that Sabine is the most complicated model due to the helmet, her hair and all the various pieces of her armor. The armor pieces aren’t painted on, but are actual individual pieces. They even discussed charging more money for Sabine. Looking at the character models, Sabine really is highly detailed and extremely well done. She immediately popped out to me and the Stormtrooper helmet is a perfect accessory. I wish she was cradling her Mando helmet but I guess we can’t have everything. Sabine is possibly the coolest figure in the whole Star Wars line.
Finally, on Twitch, it was specifically noted that these four are the “first Rebels characters” to be included. I’m sure that Hera and possibly some Inquisitors aren’t far behind. Fingers crossed for a Rebels Ahsoka!
Below are images of the figures:
Note that these figures are for use within the three playsets that will be available. Rebels will not have its own playset.
Sabine and Zeb fighting side by side with Obi-Wan! Chewie and Zeb! Ezra and Kanan in the throne room! Ezra surrounded (and clearly about to be killed) by Vader and a squad of Snowtroopers! Disney Infinity… where Star Wars mash-up dreams live.

Star Wars Rebels™ Characters Join Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Lineup
Introducing Four Star Wars Rebels™ Characters, Unlockable Across All Three Star Wars™ Play Sets and Immediately Playable in the Toy Box
LOS ANGELES, Calif. – (JUNE 12, 2015) Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm today announced that some of the Star Wars™ characters from the popular animated TV series Star Wars Rebels™ are joining Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition. Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, and Zeb Orrelios will be joining other Star Wars, Marvel, Disney and Disney•Pixar characters in Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition’s Toy Box. Additionally, all characters are unlockable within each Star Wars™ Play Set.
In an effort to thwart the evil plans of the Galactic Empire, these characters are key players in the fight against the forces of the dark side, providing a unique addition to the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition experience.
· Jedi turned rebel fugitive, Kanan Jarrus leads his team in secret operations to help overthrow the Galactic Empire. He defends the innocent with his blaster and Lightsaber™ and guides his Padawan, Ezra, in the ways of the Force™.
· Growing up on his own, Ezra Bridger relied on his street smarts – and subconscious Force abilities – to survive on Lothal. That changed when he met the Ghost crew; Ezra came to believe in their cause, and with the help of Kanan, began to learn the ways of the Jedi, using his custom Lightsaber to undermine the Empire and inspire the rebels.
· Sabine Wren has explosive talents for art and demolitions alike, and she won’t hesitate to use them against the Empire. She can stealthily approach and sabotage the enemy or stand alongside her rebel allies to lend her twin blasters to the cause.
· Zeb Orrelios is as strong a brawler as he is headstrong. He stands alongside his fellow rebels with his bo-rifle in hand, ready to take on the Imperial forces.
The Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Starter Pack, rated E10+ by the ESRB, will be available this fall for $64.99 and includes the Star Wars™ Twilight of the Republic Play Set, the Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition Base, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices.
Star Wars Rebels Season Two premieres Saturday, June 20th (9:00.m. ET/PT) on Disney XD.
A Play Set based on Disney•Pixar’s upcoming film Inside Out and a Marvel Play Set featuring Hulkbuster, Ultron, and other Marvel characters will also be available. Additional Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition figures and Play Sets will be announced in the coming months.
