Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars Rise Against the Empire Play Set Review
When people think 'Star Wars', they don't think about Episodes I through III. They think of the original trilogy — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi. Because as much fun as Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ezra, Sabine and the other launch day characters are, I've raised my kids to know who the real stars of this franchise are.
They know that Han hot first. They know that you always let a Wookie win, especially Chewbacca. They know that Luke is a Jedi, like his father before him. They know Princess Leia can doesn't betray the Rebel Alliance in the face of evil. And they know Darth Vader is the best villain ever. With all of this knowledge, all they wanted from Disney Infinity 3.0 was a way to play as these characters and experience their story, then go on to make their own.
Alas, we have the Star Wars Rise Against the Empire play set, which comes with an adventure that spans the events of Episodes IV through VI (differently, though), and comes with Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia (Han Solo, Chewbacca and Darth Vader are sold separately). From Tatooine and Hoth, to Endor and the Death Star, the Rise Against the Empire play Set takes you on a journey through your favorite movies with the characters you love the most. But does it do them justice while fitting in with Disney Infinity?
