An Epic Mickey with full creative freedom would be, epic.

I hope this leads to Disney comissioning a remaster of Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. :)



Some days I just blow up.

Disney has a ton of IP that hasn't been used in gaming much. They could probably have a few AAA and a few AA games every year out of their catalogue. Just Starwars can work in several genres, and that's just one of many massive properties they hold.



With the tech we have today, I'd kill for an action based Hulk game. bring on the destructive physics!"

Spider-Man took several years to even be greenlit. One of the main people who were part of the original pitch now works for Nintendo..and that was after years of being in charge of  Disney Infinity and then a Gearbox VP. John Vignocchi. Hoping it doesn't take several years of convincing this time to get a sequel going.

The PS4 game? The only story I heard about that was from Insomniac, and it sounded pretty straight forward.
One head of Marvel/Disney asked Sony if they could have Insomniac make a game for them. They would get to pick whichever character they wanted. A Sony head pitched the idea to Insomniac's CEO and he was like "Eh, maybe? I dunno I'll ask my team."
But when he asked his team, they were all very enthusiastic about it. And most of them wanted Spiderman.

Obviously a lot of details were omitted, but it sounded like it was Marvel's idea originally. In which case you imagine it would be less complicated to reach an agreement than if it was the other way around.

Do you remember where you read that story?

But we want more than Star Wars. Why not an open world Zootopia game or something?

I agree.  They have a ton of properties that need to be used in video games.

Maybe even a Disney character tournament fighter! :D

Unfortunately, I think that's the one character that Disney is least likely to give full freedom on.  I'm actually surprised they let them do as much as they did with Epic Mickey.  And tbh the gameplay was more of an issue than the creative side to me.

I think that's going to be an issue with more than just Mickey.  Disney is super protective of their characters.  I imagine it would be hard for a lot of developers to work with the restrictions Disney would likely put into licenses for many of their family-friendly IPs.
