This New Character Lineup Is What's Cool About Disney Infinity

Disney Infinity comes out a week from today with a host of characters from your favorite Disney franchises. Today at the D23 Fan Expo, eleven new characters and a new Toy Story in Space playset were announced. Look at all of familiar faces, hanging out together. That's pretty awesome.

We've got Buzz Lightyear and Jessie coming in the game's sixth play set — full games within the game — with Woody sold separately. There's the first Disney Channel characters in Phineas and Agent P. The massive Wreck-It Ralph and the tiny Vanellope suggest tons of arcade-themed toys to play with. Jack Skellington from A Nightmare Before Christmas guarantees reformed goth girls and boys will be playing. Rapunzel from Tangled is the first Disney Princess to make the cut, and Anna and Elsa from the upcoming film Frozen bring some new blood to the table.

And then, of course, there is the king — Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey.

The new characters will start rolling out in October, when the new Toy Story set arrives, and keep coming through 2014.

But just look at that lineup. That is a kick-ass group of characters, and there are tons more where they came from.
