As Disney Interactive prepares to introduce the world to its multi-platform ‘Disney Infinity’ video game, Stitch Kingdom continues to be at the forefront of reporting the game news as it develops. Later this morning, Disney and its Avalanche Software developer plan on introducing the game at the historic El Capitan Theatre at an invitation-only event. Presiding over the announcement will be DIMG co-president John Pleasants as well as John Lasseter.
Billed as ‘Toy Box,’ the first video game in which Disney and Pixar characters unite and play together, we are anticipating the announcement to include many features reminiscent of Activision’s popular ‘Skylanders’ franchise, though nothing has yet to be confirmed by Disney.
As preparations for the event continue, the El Captain has been transformed to support the game, including a marquee that reads ‘THEIR WORLDS. YOUR IMAGINATION. NO RULES.’ and promotes the use of Twitter hashtag #DisneyInfinity and the website http://disney.com/infinity (which forwards to https://infinity.disney.com) but is not yet active at press time. Inside, a large standee featuring the Disney Infinity logo and flanked by representations of Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean 5, Mr. Incredible and Monster University’s Sulley.
The announcement is scheduled to take place at 2 pm ET/11 am PST. Be sure to follow @stitchkingdom on Twitter for more exciting live updates throughout the day.
