The lights are on
Two new characters have been announced for Disney Infinity 2.0. The game, which is largely focused on Marvel Super Heroes, won’t be leaving its pure Disney roots behind.
In addition to Marvel’s most iconic stars, classic characters from the Disney universe will get some action in the Toy Box. The two latest to join the party are Merida from Brave and Maleficent. The latter is modeled after Angelina Jolie as she appears in the upcoming film carrying the witch’s name.
These will be featured in the game similarly to the Frozen characters in the original. There won’t be any specific adventures, but you’ll be able to use them and level them up in the Toy Box.

Disney Infinity Marvel Super Heroes will be out this fall for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PC, and iOS.

i'm glad to hear other characters will be added, but i hope we get additional toy boxes/play sets as well. i know there are a lot of folks out there who are very into the marvel universe, but i'd love to see some of the classic disney franchises come to fruition in infinity.
I like Disney Infinity much better than Skylanders even though I never played it. I like it much better because Disney didn't kill off a character just to start a new series that just ruins the character. (Spyro)
