In addition to bearing one of the most recognizable faces anywhere, Mickey Mouse has starred in more memorable cartoons than you can shake a magic wand at. Junction Point says it's building on that rich history, crafting an interesting story behind the iconic rodent's next game outing.

Junction Point's Warren Spector gushes about working with Marv Wolfman, former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics and an early story editor at Disney Adventures magazine. Wolfman talks about how they built off the original game's story and highlights the challenges in working with an interactive medium. Unlike a static medium, such as comics, Wolfman says he has to tell a story while also taking player decisions into account. He says one advantage that he brings is a long professional history of working with artists. 

Take a look at the clip below.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two is coming out November 18 on the PC, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360, as well as a side-scrolling spinoff on the 3DS.
