A while back, it was leaked by Toys “R” Us in their database that Aladdin was supposedly coming to Disney Infinity 2.0. Today, the Disney Infinity team confirmed not just Aladdin, but his heroic partner Princess Jasmine, will be coming to the Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition) Toy Box.
Here is some official information:Aladdin: With a scimitar and a magic lamp at his disposal, Aladdin’s brand of action is the answer to all your Disney Infinity Toy Box 2.0 wishes. You’ll want to seek out this diamond in the rough. A proven fan favorite, Aladdin has consistently been one of the most requested characters since Disney Infinity was released last year.
Jasmine: From within the walls of the Sultan’s palace in Agrabah, Princess Jasmine leaps into acrobatic action in Toy Box 2.0. With the help of a magic carpet, Jasmine can summon desert winds to keep enemies at bay.
Disney’s Aladdin figure will be available in North American retail stores this fall and Jasmine is scheduled for release in early 2015. Disney Infinity (2.0 Edition) is rated E-10+ by the ESRB. Additional Disney and Marvel characters will be announced in the coming months.
In addition to the two new figures, four additional Disney Originals Power Discs have been revealed:
Jasmine’s Palace View (Skydome): Transform the Toy Box skyline with this Power Disc and you will feel as if you’re in the land of Agabah.
The Sands of Agrabah (Terrain): Transform your Toy Box terrain into the dunes and desert of Agrabah.
Rags to Riches (Costume): Slip on this Prince Ali costume for added style and increased riches.
Aladdin’s Magic Carpet [RARE]: Your wish for flight has been granted. Soar above the Toy Box on Aladdin’s Magic Carpet with this rare Power Disc.
And then we have the official video:
From the video, we can see the following:
~ Looks like Aladdin has a power involving the Genie’s Lamp. Though I didn’t see Genie actually, hopefully he makes an appearance.
~ Jasmine has a desert wind power, as well as a mega jump ability, from the footage.
~ Aladdin is wielding his Arabian sword. This totally brought me back to the Aladdin NES game.
~ Aladdin is at one point riding one of the skeleton reindeer from Nightmare Before Christmas. No word on if that is a Toy Box unlockable or a Power Disc.
~ Looks like there will be more Toy Box buildings and decorations from the upcoming Big Hero 6 movie.
~ Jasmine is riding a new cycle out of the Cave of Wonders, I think… no idea what it is from.
Unfortunately, the fact that now TWO characters from the same Disney property are announced as Toy Box only supports the belief that there will be no Disney Originals Play Sets. While this is not 100% confirmed, this would have been the perfect time for Disney Infinity to announce an Originals Play Set.
We have been also given stills from Disney Infinity showing more hints at future Toy Box unlocks and possible Power Discs. We will break those down for you later today. For now, here is one of them.
