EW exclusive: 'Disney Epic Mickey' trailer!

For the last 60 years or so, Mickey Mouse has mostly existed as the helium-voiced, fully-clothed straight man of the Disneyverse. But life is nothing without gritty reboots. Hence, Disney Epic Mickey, the upcoming Wii videogame that simultaneously returns Mickey to his roots — he’s back in red shorts — while also sending him into an elaborate cartoon meta-dystopia populated by forgotten Disney characters. Besides an intriguingly gonzo premise, Epic Mickey brings with it the cachet of designer Warren Spector (Deus Ex). EW has an exclusive trailer for Mickey, which releases Nov. 30:

Simply because my inner six-year-old is screaming, I’m stoked about Mickey, but I’ll be intrigued to see how the “brush” system (you can either create or destroy objects in your path) works out with the Wii’s motion control.

What do you think, PopWatchers?

    Once again, EW, great job in keeping these lowlife, bottom-feeding spammers off the Comments section. Way to go!

    I think I will buy a wii just to play this game-it looks fantastic!

  • Cris

    Looks like Disney meets Super Mario Galaxy. And that can only be a good thing! I’ll be pre-ordering it for sure

    • Katja

      I agree, and I LOVE Super Mario Galaxy, but I’ve always kind of disliked Mickey, so I can’t decide whether I want to play this. The visuals are looking really pretty, though…

  • The Jackal

    I love the “May contain content inappropriate for children” warning.

  • Meso Soup

    • Kory

      It’s “Oh, Mickey” you ding bat.

      • MadScientist

      • Rebel

  • darclyte

    The game looks amazing, and the concept is really interesting. I hope this does well.

    Geez, I’m falling right into their trap. This will be a great shared Christmas present for my kids. My son wants Halo Reach and my daughter wants Lego Harry Potter, but this is one I know they would agree on.

    • Thomas

      Sorry Mary but what Platform do your kids have? Halo Reach as everybody knows is only available for XBox whereas the new Epic Mickey will only be developed for Wii

  • Jeff from Jersey; yes New Jersey

    I think Uncle Walt would have loved this except for one thing. No offense to the Mouse but you gotta have the Duck and the Goof there too.

      I saw an image of a cyborg or robot Donald in Game Informer a while ago, so they may be represented in some fashion.

  • paige

    i cant wait for this game. its right up my alley. haha suck it Move!

  • jrwork

    I saw an article about it in Nintendo Power late last year, and I decided then that I wanted it. Mickey Mouse is one of my favorite cartoon characters, after all, so a game as awesome-looking as this starring Mickey, well, I guess you could say I’ve beem chomping at the bit since I first heard about it.

  • katie

    i cant wait to get this game :)

  • CupcakeKiller702

    Bad Mama, I bought this for my kid for Christmas for purely selfish reasons, and also bought the paintbrush Wiimote made for the game to got with it. I can’t wait to play this
