More Star Wars, Marvel and Disney classics are coming to the toys-to-life adventure series, as revealed at the D23 convention
Disney held its annual D23 convention this weekend and along with announcing exciting news like an expansion to Disney theme parks focused on Star Wars, the company revealed several new figures, modes and more for its third entry in the Disney Infinity series, which launches on August 30.
Two figures from upcoming movie Zootopia (pictured) will be joining the cast as well as a character from another upcoming film, The Good Dinosaur. In addition, the ultimate unlock (unlocked by having every figure leveled up to at least level one) was revealed to be the Keyblade sword from Kingdom Hearts. Lastly, a 4-player co-op mode for Marvel was announced.
Fans in attendance also walked away with an exclusive power disc that will change Mickey into King Mickey. The disc will not be sold at retail and is already fetching upwards of $200 on Ebay.
Perhaps the most exciting news is that the fan-voted figure, which will make its way to the franchise in approximately one year, was revealed to be Peter Pan.
