Disney Interactive today announced that Stitch and Tinker Bell will join Merida and Maleficent as new Disney themed playable characters in the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ Toy Box to be released later this year. To celebrate the occasion, Disney Interactive has supplied us with high res images of the new figures as well as Toy Box screen shots featuring them at play.
Over the weekend, Toys ‘R’ Us teased their 2014 exclusives for San Diego Comic-Con, which will be available at the Entertainment Earth booth #2343 as well as online in limited quantities starting July 24. Toys ‘R’ Us has been kind enough to provide us with additional photos of its items which include a fantastic winged Maleficent doll as well as an exclusive Star Wars Black Series set, My Little Pony and more. You can find the newly released photos along with additional information below.
In conjunction with today’s theatrical release of Maleficent, Disney Interactive unveiled new details for Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition playable characters Maleficent and Merida. In addition to a game play trailer, final concept art for the figure as well as screen shots of the duo in action inside the Toy Box were also released and can be seen below.
Merida: With her untamed fiery red locks, this headstrong Princess will definitely leave her mark in Disney Infinity. Between her sharp sword and bow combo attacks with ricocheting arrows, she can upgrade her aim with elemental freeze arrows, freezing enemies in front of her then following up with rapid shots showing off her impressive athletic skills as an archer and sword fighter.
Walt Disney Studios has released a two new clips from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Pretty Bird’ and ‘Evil Fairy.’ In the clips, which can be found embedded below, you can watch a bit of the scenes in which Aurora meets Diaval in the Moors as well as when Aurora finds out the true identity of her ‘fairy godmother.’
Walt Disney Studios UK has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘On the Battlefield.’ In the featurette, the cast and crew go on site for the filming of the great battle between the Moors (headed by Maleficent) and King Henry’s army.
Gushing over the concept art for Maleficent over and over? Guilty. The official Evil is the New Black blog, which gave us our first doses of the concept art (see the growing gallery embedded below), has now posted yet another image seen here which features Maleficent as she approaches King Stefan’s castle. Perhaps most interesting, however, is that the castle itself appears to take some direction from another castle: Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland, which was so-named not because of its resemblance to any structure in the 1959 animated film, but simply to promote the film (well before it opened, no less).
Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘In The Clouds.’ In the clip, which can be found embedded below, you can catch a glimpse at what Maleficent enjoys doing most — soaring through and above the Moors with the aid of her incredible wings.
Walt Disney Studios has released a new clip from Maleficent (May 30, 2014), titled ‘Fairy Godmother.’ In the clip, which can be found embedded below, Aurora has just awoken to find herself deep in the Moors filled with strange, fantastical creatures. But she’s about to come face to face with someone who’s no stranger to her at all.
As we announced yesterday, Disney Interactive today released ‘Maleficent Free Fall’ for Apple iOS and Android devices (now available through the App Store and Google Play respectively), the follow-up to its highly successful (and addictive) ‘Frozen Free Fall.’ So how does the new game stack up versus its predecessor? After about an hour and several levels of play, here’s my take:
Walt Disney Studios has just released a new featurette for Maleficent (May 30, 2014) titled ‘Light vs Dark’ which features Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and director Robert Stromberg talking about the focus of the film. The featurette also features a little bit of new footage. You can find the featurette embedded below.
