In an effort to begin promoting the Star Wars series in advance of the new film coming out next year, the Walt Disney Company has released a new Star Wars game app. Players of the game, "Star Wars Commander," will control battles featuring Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia. The app will be available on Apple devices, with no announced plans to move to other platforms. The app is free, but there are in-game charges if players want to advance more quickly in the game. Updates will be available that will add additional storylines and features.

Disney will also release a new computer animated movie Star Wars Rebels, Spark of Rebellion online September 29 and on Disney Channel October 3. Beginning October 13, Disney XD will debut a TV series based on the movie.
