Disney Infinity 3.0: D23 2015 Reveals: Marvel Battlegrounds, Star Wars' Finn & Rey, and More

     With the D23 Interactive Presentation landing a mere 2 weeks before the release of Disney INfinity 3.0, we were sure to get some news about it.  Fans in attendance got a nice look at what's to come, a nice surprise, and lots of informational excitement.

Rey & Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.*
     The announcements:


  • The Marvel Playset is titled "Marvel Battlegrounds."  It is set to arrive in the spring of 2016 and will include the first 4 player local co-op for DI.
  • Two figures and a Power Disc will be available for the upcoming film Zootopia.  There will be a Nick Wilde (a fox) and Judy Hopps (a bunny) figure (see pic below).  No information was available for the Power Disc.
  • The upcoming Disney/Pixar film The Good Dinosaur will also get a figure and a Power Disc pack.  The figure will be Spot the human, and the pack will include 4 of the dinosaurs (Arlo, Butch, Nash, and Ramsey) featured in the film.
  • During the Disney Resort's Toy Box Summit, a group of Toy Box Artists got together and helped select a Disney Classic character for 3.0.  The figure chosen was Peter Pan and he'll be released roughly a year from now as "The Toy Box Artists Choice."

Star Wars:

  • The first two Episode VII: The Force Awakens characters were revealed by the actors in person for the accompanying Playset.  They were Daisy Ridley's Rey and John Boyega's Finn.  
  • A limited edition set of "Light FX" figures will be released featuring the lightsaber wielding characters' sabers actually lighting up when on the base.  They will be the same toy and in-game play, it's just that their sabers now actually light up.  (Currently the known toys with this feature are: Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kanan Jarrus, and Yoda.) 

Extra Goodies:

  • There have already been 5 Playsets announced, with "more on the way."
  • Visitor's of Walt Disney World will receive a Magic Band, that if placed on the base will unlock a statue of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse that is featured at many of the parks.
  • Disney Cruise Line users will also receive exclusive content, including a cruise line toy box ship piece.
  • The Disney INfinity 3.0's ultimate unlock will be Sora's Keyblade from the Square-Enix game Kingdom Hearts.  The ultimate unlock is a small bonus for players that unlock all the figures in the Hall of Heroes area.  Previous unlock's were a Lightsaber in 1.0, and Luke Skywalker's Landspeeder for 2.0.
  • All guests that attended got an exclusive Kingdom Hearts Costume Power Disc for Mickey Mouse with the costume of King Mickey, as well as a Mickey figure.
