Jedinews got their hands on a very interesting rumor. Remember the great coverage StarWars.com gave us while the prequel trilogy was filming? What if this also happens with Episode 7 and this time you receive all great production news live on your Apple device...
According to their sources:
“A Disney branded app for Star Wars will launch on Apple TV devices, with plans to distribute the final Clone Wars episodes exclusively digitally only through the Apple TV device for a limited period of time. This will happen in this holiday season.
In 2014, plans are in an early stage to use the platform to deliver SW7 production news ‘live’ from the sets, followed with Star Wars Rebels in late 2014 taking us all the way through to SW7 release.”
“Distribution will only be on Apple TV devices capable of running iOS7 and there has been no confirmation if the same app will be available to other iOS devices such as iPad or iPhone."
Unfortunately for now the rumors suggest that this digital distribution will be only for Apple TV devices and there may also be regional restrictions. It doesn't make much sense to do this only for Apple TV but leave the iPad and iPhone out of the equation. Still this is an early rumor and it remains to be seen how things turn out. This would be a logical move by Apple considering the close relations between Disney and former CEO Steve Jobs and especially with iOS7 release next month and the rumored upcoming new Apple TV devices.
