iOS Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace Launches Today

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 1, 2014

Disney gave us a hands-on heavily embargoed look at a new Star Wars app last week called Star Wars Journeys: The Phantom Menace. While sort of a neat throwback - it's an iOS take on the classic Buena Vista storybook + record sets some of us had in kids mashed up with trivia and a video game - it's also aimed at people much shorter and younger than the average reader of sites like this one.

Follow us on Twitter @Galactichunter and @Adam16bit - we'll be giving away free codes to download this one!

Featuring lush art and amazing voiceover work by James Arnold Taylor (Obi-Wan Kenobi and others on The Clone Wars), it's $6.99 and will be on the iTunes store roughly nowish.

Last week, Star Wars and Disney bloggers were at the House of Mouse to check out new toys including Disney's own 12 3/4-inch scale electronic Star Wars action figures.
