Disney’s ‘Epic Mickey’ Featurette: ‘Disneyland-scape: Theme Park Inspirations’

Disney Interactive Studios and Junction Point Studios have released an all new featurette that focuses on the inspiration of the Wasteland in Epic Mickey – the long forgotten and discarded elements of the Disneyland theme park (with possibly a little Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World thrown in, but mostly Disneyland).

Junction Point’s Warren Spector and the game’s developers talk about the parallels between Oswald’s world and the real Disneyland, from the Mean Street to Ventureland to Lonesome Manor to Gremlin Village and more — you’ll even catch a glimpse of Space Mountain as it appears in the game. Spector talks about how the real attractions were translated into the game version and how he felt compelled to turn the iconic Mary Blair ‘it’s a small world’ facade at Disneyland into the game’s first boss.

Disney’s Epic Mickey will be released exclusively for the Nintendo Wii on November 30 and is currently available for pre-order as a standard edition or as a collector’s edition.
