I’ve been writing about Disney’s new game, Infinity, that I was able to play at a special Disney event and loved!  At the D23 Expo today, a special announcement was made about new characters that will be introduced into the game…. I’m so excited about three in particular – they are adding a princess (Rapunzel) AND Phineas and Ferb!  Squeeeeel!

The release date for Infinity is only a week away!  On August 18th, the game will debut with characters from Monsters, Inc., Pirates of the Caribbean, Incredibles and more.  Toy Story in Space will be the sixth play set to be released in October and features Buzz and Jessie in the play set pack, with Woody sold separately.

Remember Toy Box mode?  That’s where the characters from different play sets can play together.  The newest character figures announced today will be playable in the Toy Box mode and will also come with their own “Adventure.”  Each Adventure is unique to that character and allows them to play a short game.  Players can invite friends to play through Adventures with them, with two players on split-screen or four players online.

So here they are, the new characters for Disney Infinity:

·       Just in time for Halloween: Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas”
·       The first Disney Princess to be introduced into the Disney Infinity line-up: Rapunzel, from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Tangled”
·       Video game characters from a movie within a video game: Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wreck-It Ralph”
·       The first Disney Channel characters to be showcased in the Toy Box: Phineas and Agent P from the Disney Channel’s “Phineas and Ferb”
·       Keeping it cool: Anna and Elsa from the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen”
·       Leader of the pack: Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey
