Tonight at the special D23 Maleficent Event in San Francisco, D23 members were treated to a presentation by John Vignocchi and the Disney Infinity team before seeing a special screening of the Maleficent movie. As teased prior to the event, the presentation included first reveals of two new Disney Infinity 2.0 characters, and this time they are Disney. Here is a first look at Maleficent (the current movie version) and Merida, the princess from the Disney/ Pixar movie BRAVE.
As a special gift for attending the event, D23 members were each given a Maleficent Disney Infinity poster.
here are some other tidbits:
~ Vignocchi announced that two additional Toy Box Games Discs will be released, both being Disney themed. Also, there seemed to be indication that these might be part of a second Starter Pack, possibly Disney themed.This could be that other set of Starter packs that Toys ‘R’ Us added to their database this past weekend, but nothing concrete is known.
~ Given the success of the Toy Box, all Disney characters could be Toy Box Only. Vignocchi was vague, but basically answered the question of “Where is my Disney?” with “Inside the Toy Box”. Also, at the end of the video shown to the guests, it states that Maleficent and Merida will be playable in the Disney Infinity Toy Box 2.0 Edition. Though that could change, based on tonight’s presentation, there’s a good chance that there will be no Disney themed Play Sets.
~ According to Vignocchi, Angelina Jolie, who plays Maleficent in the new movie, was the first person to request a reservation for the Disney Infinity game when it was initially announced last year, so they honored her with her own character, that being Maleficent.
