On behalf of Disney, we are delighted to bring you the sixth episode in this series of videos, revealing the secrets behind the scenes of Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, introduced by the game’s creator, Warren Spector of developer Junction Point.
In this four minute segment, you’ll hear how the team behind Disney Epic Mickey 2 has been inspired by the driving force that shaped so many of Walt Disney’s properties – music – and in the process created a video game with a unique relationship to its soundtrack.
And see composer Jim Dooley explain how the opening theme was inspired by mustache twiddling!
Welcome to newly revealed Fort Wasteland – and see its original inspiration, the Disney Frontierland attraction from 1955!
Welcome to Fort Wasteland, an area within Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two based on the historic Frontierland that opened with Disneyland® Park in July 1955 and has delighted generations of visitors with forgotten attractions such as the Mine Train Through Nature’s Wonderland and Fort Wilderness on Tom Sawyer Island.
We also have B-Roll if you need to edit up your own short clip to accompany other coverage or interviews. Please get in touch with Tim or Tom if you would like access to this.
The Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two video game returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with more than 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with the magical paint brush that allows him to wield paint and thinner, and Oswald with a powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity. This new co-op play further enhances the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players tackle challenges the way they want to in order to explore a variety of possibilities and storylines, but always with consequences for their chosen actions.
Development for Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the Wii™ system from Nintendo, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system is being led by Disney Interactive’s Junction Point. Supporting the latest technology, the game will also feature full support for the PlayStation®Move motion controller. Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system is under development by critically-acclaimed developer DreamRift, in collaboration with Junction Point.
