Watch Epic Mickey raise the dead

FACT: Walt Disney was stripped of the Oswald character in 1928, which led him to the creation of his own company and a new character. Perhaps you've heard of them?

I’ve blathered on and on about how much I love Oswald the Lucky Rabbit starring in Epic Mickey many times before. You don’t have to be an animation nerd to appreciate the ridiculously cool meta-collaboration of Disney’s long lost creation appearing alongside biggest and brightest one: Mickey Mouse. But I’ll spare you personal dorkouts this time around, and let you hear all about Oswald’s cruel origins from Junction Point and Warren Spector himself!

The only thing cooler than seeing Oswald performing under the Disney banner for the first time since 1928 is seeing him do it  in the same frame as Mickey Mouse! This is truly a reunion that took almost a century to put (back) together, so November 30th can’t come soon enough for a Disney dork like me. I pulled some screengrabs of the momentous occasion from today’s trailer and you can check them out below.

    It'll be awesome if the loving care for this that Warren Spector expresses on-screen has found its way into the actual game. The screenshots are promising! Although the gameplay could easily be ported to the PS3/Move, I think the IP is actually best-suited to the Wii and its market. I certainly appreciate cross-platform games though, so I hope it gets a good port or two in the future.

    I'm really looking forward to this, it's clear that Spector genuinely cares about the characters.

    I'm not sure about other countries, but Oswald already is branded on T-shirts and sweatshirts in Korea. Nobody knows who the character is... but he is the face on the clothing

    I saw this trailer on Saturday at the Epic Mickey at Comic-Con over here >_< I actually got to MEET Warren Spector on Saturday, ohmygod it was so awesome! >_<

    Wow, this is actually really cool. Too bad it's only for the Wii.

    Thats the most adorable thing I have ever seen, and I love the prefect recreation of "Through the Mirror" as an intro

    Pretty excited for this.

    The thought of this being on the Wii makes me sad for some reason. I am looking forward to see how it turns out though.

    Want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, want, WANT!

    This is shaping up to be a pretty decent looking game... I'll have to keep my eye on it.

    I very happy a game like this is being made, mostly because you can clearly see how happy it's made Chris.
