Disney unveils massive new ‘Disney Infinity’
video game project By Danny Bowes | Movie Talk
Disney has unveiled a massive, wildly ambitious new video game project, one of great potential interest
to movie fans. In June, they plan to release "Disney Infinity," an interlocking group of multiplayer games --
across all available platforms -- in which, once all the games are released, literally every Disney and
Pixar character that has ever appeared on film will be playable.
The initial set of games in June will feature characters from "Monsters University," "The Pirates of the
Caribbean," and "The Incredibles," with future releases adding in other Disney/Pixar universes until
eventually, all are complete. There is, as yet, no word on whether characters from properties Disney has
acquired, such as "The Avengers" and "Star Wars," will be included in this plan. Perhaps most intriguing
is what Disney is calling the "toybox," allowing players to mix and match characters from different
universes so that, say, Mr. Incredible and Jack Sparrow could team up.
It is, frankly, too big a concept to easily wrap one's mind around, and feels like a logical extension of the
increasing overlap between film and video games, with each meeting the other halfway. Could this be
another example of Disney blazing the trail, lighting a way ahead few dared imagine, let alone see? We
find out in June.
