Junction Point's Warren Spector Talks Epic Mickey in 3 Part Video Interview

Junction Point

The man behind Disney's Epic Mickey franchise recently spoke to retailer GAME on the concept and series future.

In a three-part video interview Warren Spector discussed why he initially became involved in the choice and consequence idea, using the paintbrush/thinner to dynamically alter the experience.

The Nintendo 3DS brought a different side to the Epic Mickey concept, and instead of just porting or cloning the console experience, Junction Point wanted to start from scratch with stereoscopic 3D. Spector also delves into the initial pitches from different studios and how the team came to designing a tribute to the 16-bit era - Disney Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion.

If Disney gave Sector the opportunity to expand the Epic Mickey universe, he recalls a desire to create a themed attraction based on Wasteland. He also wishes to dabble in cartoons/films based on Epic Mickey.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is out now on Wii and is launching alongside the Wii U this week.
