Imaginative Worlds

Players will be able to explore six different worlds inspired by both animated and live-action Disney and Pixar films. Adventures will unfold in worlds based on “Pirates of the Caribbean,” Tim Burton’s “Alice In Wonderland,” “The Lion King,” “WALL-E,” “Monsters Inc.,” and “Aladdin.”

Iconic Costumes

Not only can players explore these worlds that have inspired their imaginations, they can also dress up to play their parts. The game lets players suit up in 45 different costumes, choosing from some of the most iconic characters, including Sam Flynn, Quorra and Clu (“TRON”), Baloo (“The Jungle Book”), Ariel (“The Little Mermaid”), Sulley (“Monsters, Inc.”), Nemo (“Finding Nemo”) and everyone’s favorite fairy, Tinker Bell (“Peter Pan”).

Dozens of other character costumes are also featured in the game, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy and Donald, with characters from “The Jungle Book” and “The Muppets” available in the coming months for download into the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.

Adventures and Battles

Disney Universe features plenty of adventures and battles. Players will be able to journey to the enchanted city of Agrabah, sail the high seas in Jack Sparrow’s beloved Pirate ship, or witness the majesty of Pride Rock as they suit up to battle some of the most fearsome villains, all while using special power-ups that change and expand in influence as the game continues.

The game world will then continue to expand on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 with downloadable content for purchase that will provide players with brand new worlds to explore, new costumes for the games’ mischievous cast of characters and more.

Don’t Forget the Villains

Villains are often some of the best characters to play.
