Go Behind the Scenes of Disney Epic Mickey 2's Story
Posted by Mike Mason
Disney Interactive has given us a peek at the story writing process behind Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two. But just a little one — you wouldn't want any surprises spoiled now, would you?
Junction Point creative director Warren Spector and senior designer Brian Freyermuth speak of their excitement at Marv Wolfman joining the project. The former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics is acting as writing consultant on Disney Epic Mickey 2 — and since he was also once story editor of Disney Adventures magazine, you'd better believe he knows his Goofy from his Gaston.
Wolfman mentions that one of his biggest personal challenges was letting go of some control due to the interactivity of a video game. Since a player can alter the world around them, he notes that it's important to impart information in ways that afford freedom. The team is also working to give a real sense of two characters working and relating to each other, since Mickey and Oswald the rabbit will be hopping around together for plenty of the adventure.
Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is due out in November.
