There are "no plans for Star Wars to join Disney Infinity at this moment in time," according to an update from the Disney Store, despite earlier rumours suggesting that the Star Wars universe could be included in the next version of the popular figure-collecting game.

Disney Store made the comments on its Facebook page in response to questions brought on by an image of a Darth Vader figurine (pictured above), which stands on a base similar to that of existing Disney Infinity toys.

"Whilst there are no plans for Star Wars to join Disney Infinity at this moment in time... please do continue to check back for more exciting updates to our Star Wars collection", wrote the store.

An earlier rumour from the Wall Street Journal suggested that characters from both the Marvel and Star Wars universes would be featured in a future version of Disney Infinity.

Part of that rumour appears to have been proved correct, with Marvel teasing the Avengers for something called Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition last week. Still, that isn't to say Star Wars won't join Disney Infinity eventually, and with a film expected late next year, could it make more sense for the characters to be included in the inevitable Disney Infinity 3?

Disney has yet to formally announce Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition or confirm which characters could be set to feature.
