Hello everyone! The new information buzz has died down a bit since E3, but we hope to get more information in the days to come! Today I report to you all regarding a little easter egg that Disney left all of us fans at E3. Remember my first update from the event, there was a few little hints of things to come inside the toy box demo area. There was a picture of Mr. Toad hanging on the wall inside this room. Heres a little reminder?
So before I get into this even further, who is Mr. Toad? All the die hard Disney fans will know this, but the following is for those who don’t know…
Mr. Toad actually comes from “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad,” Disney’s 11th classic animated film that released in theaters on October 5th, 1949. It is an animated musical feature composed of two segments based on the stories “The Wind in the Willows,” by Kenneth Grahame, and “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by Washington Irving.
Mr. Toad is also known for his Disney Park Presence! “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” is one of the original Fantasyland rides that debuted when Disneyland first opened it’s gates, back in 1955. It also was one of the original rides when Disney World’s Magic Kingdom first opened its gates back in 1971. Disneyland’s version is still in operation today, but sadly is no longer opened in the Magic Kingdom. A chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff took over his Floridian home. “Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride” is a classic and still popular to this day in Disneyland. Its the only ride that has a “hell” of an ending!
So enough history lessons, whats all this have to do with Disney Infinity? Well it so happens that while reviewing some B-roll footage, Buzz Lightyear was racing Merida in an interesting set of wheels! Does this car look familiar to anyone?
Please note, this isn’t confirmed yet! But seeing this in action only gives us positive hopes of taking a “wild ride” in Infinity soon!
