It’s been nearly a week now since the D23 Expo 2015 began and we’re all still recovering from all the news and memories made at the three-day long event. This marks the fourth D23 Expo, a company backed effort that began in 2009 and has been held every two years at the Anaheim Convention Center.

In case you couldn’t be there or were stuck in the line for the Disney Store, I’ll do my best to fill you in!
Today, Disney Interactive released the new trailer which debuted at D23 Expo 2015 for Star Wars™ Twilight of the Republic, one of three Star Wars™ Play Sets to be released for Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition, which launches in North America on August 30.
