Really interesting take on some classic stuff. I doubt this is still a living project though.

Pretty sure it was the GDC 08 podcast of GFWradio where Spector had said he's working on something for Disney and the stuff he was showing them he was amazed at what they were letting him get away with.

Not hard to see the motivations - if Disney start making their own Disney games (given they have inhouse dev now) then they can start making their own bank without needing to collabourate with anyone else and share the resulting $$

Heard a lot of good things about the project, but not heard much in a while so hope it's still alive.

I want 2 things to make this different from the usual dance through Pocahontas or whatever: a Miss Ruby/Octavio from Sly Cooper or Gitaroo-Man-like rhythm section against mecha-skeletons from "The Skeleton Dance" and a horrifying tower level based on the famous "The Old Mill" short.

Actually, yes. An adventure game in the vein of Heavy Rain/The Dig would actually be a pretty good idea.

I wouldn't have thought they would have released a PG-13-rated Pirates of the Carribean under the Disney label, but they did.

The old Disney cartoons are so awesome. If this game could bring half of the humor, imagination, and feel of those worlds, we'd be in for something epic. The second and last pieces of art are great.

But in the context of western gaming, why would you think of the JP conventional style? Western ADVs are all about exploration games like Monkey Island or Broken Sword.

I feel a game with emphasis on free exploration and interaction with the world and environment without too many forced gameplay mechanics other than means to advance the story would be an awesome way to present a game like this.

There's a rumor that he just did this as a test to convince Disney to hand over an IP he really wanted. Pretty sure this art dates back to 2007.

And JP was hiring for a dissimilar sounding project a few months ago.

But I really, really hope this is still in development.

Last I heard, it was cancelled.

I am pretty sure the concept has been pitched more than once in hopes it will make it. I doubt anything has come of it.
