Wait a sec... What if this is like A Boy & His Blob or Wario Land Shake? Aka a beautiful sidescroller?

Does it have a shot, or am I just dreaming?

Wario Land Shake really didn't sell that great, and A Boy & His Blob probably won't sell that well either.

My guess would be it's 3D if for no other reason than market forces.

If the game itself matches up to the concept art then this will be the game that finally forces me to crumble and pick up a Wii.

No, if it's on the Wii it will be bad and you should feel bad.

I'd welcome a 3D platformer, actually. Strangely enough we don't have too many of those these days. I'm not complaining since the 2D rebirth has been quite awesome.

You'll need to accept the Waggle because I bet you that this game is leading on the Wii.

Was. Now, he's doing a movie. Hopefully, he gets to take down Lasseter in a film 1 day, and that would be an awesome way to do it. (I say this as someone who admired Lilo And Stitch, but hated it.)

A movie based on the characters? Lasseter was already lampooned in Bee Movie, FWIW.

Oh, no (legal troubles?), but it would be fun to see the original designs find their way into a cameo appearance in some other feature. And I did hear the Bee Movie thing.

Gotta be honest here, I never followed Disney that much, I read it in a paper once. I already forget about it though. Can't even remember the last Disney movie I saw :P

Oh, that's really something far different. This is a weird, overly dark take on classic animated characters -- I just don't see Disney letting it out the gate like THIS, unless something radically changes OR...

well, let me rephrase that, I COULD see someone giving this the okay depending upon the underlying story, but I find it highly unlikely that these pieces of art would represent the majority or main theme of the game.

Epic Mickey isn't overly dark, or at least I don't see it as dark, it is awesome, with a dash of grim on the side!
