'Star Wars' takeover coming to Disney's Club Penguin
Stormtroopers and Penguins?
Your kids may want penguins added to the official Star Wars story after Disney’s Club Penguin has its first event with the iconic franchise. The Star Wars Takeover, available to play beginning July 25, will feature Darth Herbert and the evil Empire threatening the island. Your child (or, let’s be honest, you) can then join the rebel forces to battle Stormtroopers, steal the secret plans and destroy the Death Star (seen in the exclusive image above). Penguins will also be able to dress up like some favorite Star Wars characters while they try to save the galaxy.
Takeovers aren’t new to the game site — Marvel, Shake It Up! and Monsters University have all had turns — but fans have long been clamoring for a Star Wars one. Check out a game trailer below:
