The Epic Mickey games put players behind a magic paint-brush wielded by the iconic mouse himself, but that isn’t the best part… at least not for Disney nerds. No, the series’ most fan-pleasing claim to fame is its inspired world, Wasteland. A twisted take on traditional Disney theme parks, Wasteland is home to forgotten characters, scrapped attractions, and any other ideas that spilled from Walt’s creative mind onto the cutting room floor.
This misfit Magic Kingdom replaces the real-world theme parks’ Main Street with Mean Street and transforms the smiling clock-face adorning Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World” into a Mickey-eating monster. Early looks at Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, which arrives Nov. 18, hint at equally creepy-cool alt-Disney destinations such as the Frontierland-based Gulch and parade-inspired Floatyard.
The latest piece of re-imagined Wasteland real estate is Autotopia, based on Disneyland’s similarly named Autopia attraction. For an exclusive sneak peek at how Epic Mickey 2’s twisting and tweaking the popular racetrack ride, spy the screens below.
