Seeing how the movie came out 22 years ago, Aladdin isn't exactly "a whole new world" at this point. Disney Infinity certainly took its sweet time bringing the nineties-era classic back in video game form, though. Today, Disney finally revealed its plans to bring Aladdin and Princess Jasmine to the Disney Infinity Toybox 2.0.
Don't get too excited, though. Because while having a magic carpet in your virtual toy box sounds unimpeachably awesome, the Aladdin-themed content doesn't sound like the most... robust addition to Disney Infinity.
The press release said nothing about a full Aladdin playset with unique levels in the vein of, say, the Pirates of the Caribbean or Monsters University ones. Instead, Disney left it at saying that "fans will be able to use these magical characters along with a variety of Disney fan favourites, including the popular Marvel Super Heroes, and hundreds of themed items, locations, props, vehicles and more to create all-new adventures and 'whole new worlds' born from the imagination of players."
Plus, the two characters aren't even coming out at the same time. Disney said that the Aladdin figure will launch in the UK this coming autumn, but we'll have to wait until 2015 to get Princess Jasmine.
Sigh. Whatever happened to showing me the world, Disney? Well, I guess Aladdin and Jasmine didn't get together until the end of the movie anyways...
