Disney Infinity to receive new character figurines starting this October

New Disney characters include Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey and the two main characters from upcoming animated film Frozen; sixth playset is Toy Story in Space.

by

Disney Interactive announced at its D23 Expo that it will be bringing in 13 new characters from various Disney franchises for the upcoming game Disney Infinity.

Nope, still no Marvel or Star Wars characters yet.

The new characters, who will also be physical figurines, are Buzz Lightyear, Jessie and Woody from the Toy Story franchise, Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope from the 2012 film Wreck-It Ralph, Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas, Rapunzel from Tangled, Anna and Elsa from the upcoming animated film Frozen, Phineas and Agent P from the animated TV show Phineas and Ferb, and Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey from Fantasia.

Buzz Lightyear and Jessie will be the only toys bundled together under the Toy Story in Space playset; the rest of the characters will be sold individually. The new character figurines will start rolling out from this October through 2014.

Disney Infinity will be out on August 18.

We will see how far back they will actually go. If wizard apprentice Mickey is going to be in this game then their is hope for many other potential characters. I'm sure we will see characters like Tron (new and/or old), Hercules, and Aladdin later on. Now if they do really good and bring out characters like the crew from Duck Tales (cough, gizmo duck, cough), the Jungle book, and personally for me, DARKWING DUCK........then I see this game will be pretty good.

What about Zurg I saw him in some videos he should be out the same time as the toy story playset

Where is Donald, where is Cinderella, where is Simba?

Oh right they're marketing this game for the <10 year olds because the game will be so bad no one else would even look at it. I would be very interested in a proper Disneyland experience, but it's getting quite obvious that this isn't it. Maybe after 28 DLC packages.

My son's really looking forward to this. I am too.

I wonder if we'll see Tron characters. That would be cool.

Well Mickey's there so it's nice to see a legacy character. Now how about some Aladdin or Simba. But hey way to put in the Lone Ranger and Tonto there Disney because that movie did sooooo well.

So the only figures out of this new batch getting their own playset are the ones from Toy Story.  That's kind of disappointing.

Skylanders part 2.  Sigh.  You know what the worst part about portal/action figure games are?  Having to get up to switch characters.

@sirdukefillion Well, Fantasia was 40+ years before a Nightmare before Christmas but I still see what you are getting at.

@ccgod Supposedly I heard that Disney doesn't like the idea of their beloved characters punching each other violently hence why we'll never see a Disney fighting game.

@sirdukefillion @PrpleTrtleBuBum *Points at Molyneux's article*

Internet is harsh, being nice serves no purpose. I was interested in the concept of Infinity, but now it looks like an easy pass. Why would I soften it? Others have their own opinions.

@sirdukefillion @PrpleTrtleBuBum Did I offend you personally? Because all I'm saying is that I was interested but it looks like they're gathering for completely different audience (They know yesterday's kids buy their re-release DVDs so calling it a kiddy company is wrong), the kids with lower standards who are holding the power in families.

This is the time of feedback. Sure we can wait until the game is released, but at that point any feedback will be realized as afterthought DLC, if even that.

Atleast Fantasia is making a comeback.

@PrpleTrtleBuBum Did you seriously say being nice serves no purpose how about to make friends or not make people feel terrible and yeah your being unfair this game isn't out yet and you insult regardless of the fact you don't know what its like they have a nightmare before Christmas and fantasia so they are getting older stuff and more comes out later so odds are classic stuff you mentioned will eventually be out so  it is absolutely unfair to judge t negatively in any way right now
