I’m a giant Disney nerd, so not only was I bit disappointed once it came to light that Disney Universe starred blobby stem cell creatures wearing iconic character costumes - not the actual characters - I was utterly depressed by the four costumes they chose to unveil. I mean, thanks for TRON, but Mike Wazowski, Stitch, and a double represent from Tim Burton’s Hook-I mean, Alice in Wonderland? You know your company’s been around longer than ten years right?

Well, the big consolation today, is that Disney Universe has finally revealed costumes for four beloved characters that’ve been synonymous with the company for almost a century. I was so excited, I went and stuck the new character (costume) art on classic Disney animation backgrounds, ‘casue that’s how I roll: NERDY!

I should also note that I spied some Lion King and Wall-E characters during a brief hands-on during E3, which are a lot more my speed. And since the game originally teased something along the lines of FORTY or so characters, Disney Universe gets to “pull a Capcom” and trickle new character (costume) details from now until its October release date. YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS! We get to demand/speculate which characters (costumes) we want to see in the game. So... I want Elliot from Pete’s Dragon and Roger Rabbit. OH, and Brer Rabbit and maybe his black friend! You’d better believe there’s still time demand your favorite characters (costumes) in the comments below.
