Series creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh made the announcement at Comic-Con, and it will be an hour-long special episode that will “place the wacky main characters of the kids show in the same timeline and place as Star Wars.”
The storyline will feature the characters existence on the Star Wars planet Tatooine, and “will be disturbed when plans to destroy the Death Star unwittingly fall into their hands.”
Disney has been having fun with their $4 billion purchase of LucasFilm, acquired last year. Along with producing “Star Wars 7,” they have released other “Star Wars” crossovers of existing properties. They’ve unveiled pins combing characters from their “Cars” universe with “Star Wars” characters, and figurines of “The Muppets” doing the same thing.
The “Star Wars” episode will air next year on the Disney Channel and Disney XD.
