In what will be an unholy union to some, and completely expected move to others, LEGO has teamed up with Disney to produce new kits based on upcoming movies.
The press release is brief, and details are scarce, but what we do know is the deal encompasses three Disney properties: Toy Story, Prince of Persia, and Cars. As part of the deal, LEGO will have access to these three licenses, and will create themed sets, due out sometime in 2010.
Given the Star Wars, Batman, Indiana Jones and other LEGO crossovers that already exist, this is, like I said, hardly a surprise. Let’s just cross our fingers and hope that these kits retain that LEGO edge we so love here at Gizmodo. [MarketWatch – Thanks, Ponies!]
