Game Developer Conference Europe Attendees First to Venture Thru the Mirror as Warren Spector Unveils Disney Epic Mickey's Opening Movie Part One in His Keynote Address
August 16, 2010 - Industry luminary Warren Spector today revealed Part One of the Disney Epic Mickey video game opening movie at the conclusion of his keynote address at the Game Developer Conference Europe in Cologne, Germany. Setting the story for Disney Epic Mickey, Part One follows the adventures of a mischievous Mickey Mouse, revealing the origins of Wasteland - a world of things forgotten, retired or rejected - and offering clues to sites unseen from iconic animations long ago. Reminiscent of the 1930’s classic Disney cartoon “Thru the Mirror,” Disney Epic Mickey’s Opening Movie Part One is available for download at

Fans of Disney Epic Mickey will need to stay tuned as Part Two will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Disney Epic Mickey is an action-adventure platforming game for the Wii console that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternate world made up of Disney’s forgotten creative efforts, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey’s path to becoming an epic hero.

Through the use of this unique paint and paint thinner, the key components of animation and Mickey’s tools for impacting his world, players will have the ability to shape how the story unfolds as they discover the concept of “Playstyle Matters” – an innovative style of gameplay created by Disney Interactive Studios’ Junction Point, led by industry luminary Warren Spector, where players creatively tackle different challenges in the world to explore all the possibilities and storylines – but with consequences for their chosen actions.
Disney Epic Mickey will be available this holiday season exclusively for the Wii console.
