The lights are on
Project Toy Box from Disney is apparently about to become an official game. Press outlets are receiving invitations to an event on January 15 for the unveiling of Disney Infinity.
As the name implies, the scope of the project is large; previous reports have pointed to crossovers between Pixar and Disney (and maybe Star Wars?), and the integration of collectible toys (similar to Skylanders).
Disney isn't giving out many details at this point. According to the event invitation, Disney's John Lasseter and John Pleasants will be there, so you can expect to learn much more about this ambitious project on January 15.
