I was watching news out of D23 for e past few days, specifically the Disney Infinity news. I jkept seeing teasers that Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey was coming to Disney Infinity but now I finally have confirmation of that figure and much, much more. Disney Infinity just keeps growing and growing with so many characters. I’m most excited about the Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope figures because I can’t wait to play with Eva as those characters. I’ve mentioned it before that I found their relationship almost like a father to a daughter and so that movie holds a special place in my heart.
There are even characters coming from the movie Frozen which will be released later this year. Rapunzel will be the first Disney Princess to make it into the game and so that must mean that more will follow. Hopefully Medrida will be added and other as well. Here’s the full release after the jump.
