Looks like Disney is starting its pre-Episode VII marketing campaign with the release of Star Wars Commander for iOS. I’m sure we will start to see more releases like this leading up to the much anticipated Episode VII movie. In the meantime, the studio will feed us this little specks of Star Wars goodness to keep our interests peaked just enough to keep it in our heads. Right now it appears to be only for iOS but an Android version should be coming, if the video below is correct. You can hit the link after the video to get it on the iTunes store. Check out the teaser after the break.
Disney Interactive on Thursday announced Star Wars: Commander, a free-to-play game for mobile devices. The Disney Channel on Tuesday said it would unveil a new animated movie, “Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion,” on Oct. 3. Disney XD, a separate channel, will roll out the related “Star Wars Rebels” series on Oct. 13.
Construction plans are progressing at multiple Disney theme parks for “Star Wars”-themed “lands.” (The model is Cars Land, a successful two-year-old addition to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif.) Disney Stores recently added “Star Wars” merchandise to shelves for the first time; new non-toy products – in particular “Star Wars”-licensed food – begin to reach retail aisles starting this week.
